“Kingdom Sound”
Monique Atkins
Independent (release date: July 1, 2023)

By Robert M. Marovich

As a song, “Kingdom Sound” is lovely though not especially remarkable, but what really sells the track is the mesmerizing soprano of Monique Atkins.

She has a bird-like lightness in her upper register that one does not often hear in gospel music…anymore. In the genre’s early days, singers like DeLois Barrett Campbell and Lorenza Brown Porter flavored gospel songs with thrilling coloratura runs and riffs. That’s why New Jersey native Atkins’ previous single, “We Need More of You,” is what we hope – to hear more from her in the future.

Last year, Monique Atkins joined Anthony Morgan and the Inspirational Choir of Harlem for a three-week tour of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland. “Kingdom Sound” is a Dulaneyland Production.

    It’s a pleasure to have her be apart of my team. A wonderful singer and a blessing to have around. So down to earth.
