From the CD Delayed But Not Denied
“Thank You” is a contemporary gospel song delivered energetically by Tonya Lewis-Taylor, who seems to summon her estimable vocal strength from within several vital organs to offer a declaration of gratitude to God. The background vocalists urge her on as, together, they ascend to increasing levels of passion.
The song, which is the lead single from Lewis-Taylor’s debut album, Delayed But Not Denied, was recorded live in New York City and landed on the Billboard Gospel National Airplay chart at #16, right between female vocal groups Zie’l and Virtue. It also comes on the heels of her participation on the 32-city 2014 Festival of Praise Tour, where she was the opening act for the likes of Fred Hammond and Donnie McClurkin.
