Tracee stands in “awe” of the creative works of God as she recently recorded her new CD project singles, “Can’t Nobody” and “Broken Mended.” These tracks feature a variety of Neo-Christian, soulful jazz and contemporary mixes. Her newest single, “Let It Go” just released, has received huge play as her #1 most requested download. This powerful tune, inspired by her own life challenges and others, speak to the hearts of those who deal with everyday challenges and the inner struggles to let go of past hurts and disappointments.
Tracee states, “Life experiences, good or challenging, are meant to build character and draw us closer to God, not to destroy us or determine our ultimate outcome.” The simple lyrics, yet strong and deep, provide a therapeutic driving sound that will encourage and inspire.
