A Music Evolution of Transcendence
Rev. Yolanda is definitely an artist who enjoys mixing styles, and "Transcendence" is another example of her musical diversity. The EP description reads, "American Southern Blues, Doo Wop, Country and Southern Gospel" - and Rev. Yolanda does a fantastic job of authentically arranging and performing the Doo Wop/50's style. I felt like I was listening to the "Hairspray" soundtrack. The production, by Philip Carroll, has a "live" feel to it even though it's a studio production, which only adds to the fun experience of hearing Rev. Yolanda perform these songs. Be prepared to be completely transcended - possibly even a little "non-binary, feminine, and hairy!"

Another amazing and inspirational cd from Rev Yolanda. These 3 tracks present an exciting new sound that will hook you from the first notes. I highly recommend this cd as well as all of the others from this talent with a truly loving heart.
