Platinum-Selling Artist Tamela Mann Releases New Kirk Franklin Collaboration “God Provides” To Gospel Radio with Companion Lyric Video
DALLAS (June 17, 2016) – Platinum-Selling Artist and Grammy Award® Nominee Tamela Mann releases her new Kirk Franklin collaboration, “God Provides,” to Gospel radio this week along with the companion lyric video. The single is written and produced by Franklin, writer/producer of the No. 1 hit track, “Take Me To The King.” “God Provides” is the sophomore single from her forthcoming 2016 album release, One Way.
“Kirk told me that as he was thinking about writing a song for my album and began to pray, ‘Lord, I’m not writing for Tam. I’m just going to write a song. Lord just give me a song,'” Mann relates. “So one night he was thinking about life like all of us do. He said as he was asleep the Lord woke him up and said, ‘God provides.’ He said he ran to the piano and words just kept coming to him. That’s the night ‘God Provides’ was born.”
