Fruit of the Spirit 2
To whom much is given, much is required. This scripture is taken to heart by the psalmist who follows the legacy of Luke by glorifying Him with her God given talent. Greta's second outing is a ground-breaking, gospel compilation called Fruit of the Spirit on The Trio Group label. This singer/songwriter presents a soul stirring vocalization that traps jazz without compromising the Word. She delivers riffs reminiscent of legendary jazz divas that compliment gospel tradition. Greta is a physician who has lifted audiences with gifted vocals since the age of five. A native of Tuskegee, Alabama, she was surrounded by music in her family and in a community where the Commodores enjoyed international fame. She and friends started a female group at the age of 12 that mesmerized audiences all across the state of Alabama. After graduating in the top of her class at Tuskegee Institute High School, she attended the University of Alabama where she transformed jazz standards forever as the Jazz Ensemble vocalist. There, she was cultivated by Cedric Dent and Mervyn Warren of Take 6. This psalmist continued to develop her vocal style while pursuing her Master of Molecular Biology at Tuskegee University. "I Got it Bad" has never been so good, as when Greta headlined the popular musical Bubblin' Brown Sugar at the Alabama Shakespeare Theatre. On her sophomore release, you experience the dawning of a new genre in gospel music as Greta displays a full range of truly jazz sounds laced with the pure word. The production team of Alex Stadaker (Take 6) and Kelvin Wooten (Earth, Wind and Fire; Jill Scott; Isley Brothers; Anthony Hamilton) has captured the Fruit of the Spirit at the peak of ripeness, straight from the Vine. Oh taste and see.... this fruit is SWEET!!!
