Grammy-nominated and Stellar Award-winning Jekalyn Carr releases her new self-titled album, “JEKALYN,” via WayNorth Music. “JEKALYN” is preceded by the Billboard Gospel National Airplay No. 1 single, “I Believe God,” and is available now wherever music is sold and streamed. “I Believe God,” marks Carr’s seventh career No. 1 on both Billboard and Mediabase radio charts.
“JEKALYN” is full of inspiration, faith-filled messages, encouragement and empowerment, with each lyric bringing excitement, freedom and restoration into the listeners' atmosphere. Carr delivers a timeless album that shows maturity and defines the elevation of her faith that has inspired people for years and will continue for years to come.
“JEKALYN” marks Carr’s first full-length release in four years and features outstanding collaborations with Tauren Wells, Kierra Sheard, Papa San, Tim Bowman Jr., Kirk Franklin, Pastor Mike Jr., Mike Teezy, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Blanca and Elevation Rhythm.
“I pray that listeners of this project find hope and understanding in whatever trials and tribulations they are currently facing,” Carr shared.
Earlier this year, Carr starred in the Universal Pictures’ Will Packer-produced film, “Praise This,” as KiKi. She received rave reviews for providing comic relief in her portrayal as the ghetto-fabulous choir member. Carr continues to expand her brand with offerings under her all-new JEKALYN BEAUTY collection.
