Tasha Cobbs Leonard pairs up with Ciara for album favourite ' In Spite of Me'
Tasha has never been one to shy away from coming out of the walls of her genre and spread the gospel wherever sees fit. Her new album ‘Royalty: Live At The Ryman’ debuted at #1 on the Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart this week and she's back with a surprise announcement with none other than fellow Grammy Award winner Ciara. They teamed up for a duet on Tasha's song 'In Spite of Me" from her latest project.
Ciara weighed in on the suppose collaboration:
“Tasha is one of the strongest voices in gospel music and we’ve always been huge fans of hers in our house,” she said of Cobbs Leonard. “In times like these, I am super thrilled to be part of a song filled with messages of hope and inspiration that can be shared with the world. With God’s love and grace, nothing in life is insurmountable. It’s truly a special moment.”
Leonard was also very excited as she calls Ciara a friend:
“Ciara is an icon. A role model. A wife, mother, and a lover of God,” she states. “Her musical versatility is undeniable, and I am so glad she joined me on this song to tell people about the unconditional love of God.”
Tasha previously worked with Trinidadian-American rapper, Nicki Minaj on her hit +single I'm Getting Ready, taken from the album Heart. Passion. Pursuit.
