Georgia gospel singer Min. Golanda Walton-Blackwell pulls out all the stops for her debut single, “My Everything.”
The song’s message of praise and gratitude are set to a contemporary gospel slow-burner that resolves in a fiery vamp. Here, Min. Golanda lets loose like an evangelist with her testimony and as a result does her finest singing. She peppers lines with blue notes as the radio edit fades, leaving the listener wanting to hear the rest. Comforting and compelling.
