Yahoo LAUNCHCAST song of the day
Artist:Tramaine Hawkins f/Walter Hawkins
Song: The Potters House
Album:8 Great Hits:Women Of Gospel
Tramaine Hawkins is a very popular gospel singer and is a member of the Hawkins family from Oakland, CA. She started out as a teenager with The Edwin Hawkins Singers and was on their landmark hit Oh Happy Day. She married Edwin's brother Walter Hawkins in the early 70s and they've been working together ever since. Walter Hawkins is a tremendous talent and Tramaine is a great singer. Tramaine started recording solo in the mid 70s and had some mainstream success with the 1983 hit In The Morning Time. She continues to tour today with her husband and the rest of the Hawkins family. Her new CD I Never Lost My Praise will be out next month on GospoCentric. The Potters House is from Tramaine's 1990 CD Live on Sparrow Records. I would recommend that over this EMI Gospel budget comp. Live has guest appearances by Carlos Santana, Stanley Turrentine & Jimmy McGriff. The Potters House was written by veteran songwriter V. Michael McKay with a great arrangement by Walter Hawkins. And here is Tramaine & Walter Hawkins performing The Potters House from this very concert. Enjoy!
