Two-time GRAMMY- nominated, Billboard Music and NAACP Image Award-winning songstress Koryn Hawthorne, has teamed up with Dove Award-winning hip-hop artist KB, to release a refreshing remix to her chart-topping hit single “Pray.” Available now on all digital music providers, “Pray (Remix)” offers an artful match up of Hawthorne’s soulful vocals and KB’s melodic flow.
Proving to be a fan favorite, “Pray” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Digital Song Sales Chart one week after release.

Additional feel-good tracks off the album, include the contemporary urban single “Speak to Me,” which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs Chart and continues to climb the rankings at Gospel and Urban AC radio, “Sunday,” “Joy,” and “You.”
With a diverse compilation of gospel, pop, hip-hop and R&B sounds, I Am exemplifies Hawthorne’s crafty penmanship, invigorating sound, and overall evolution as an artist.
Hawthorne is continuing along the path that she created with her debut album, Unstoppable, in 2018. That project spawned multiple hits including “Won’t He Do It,” which was #1 for 41 weeks and broke the record for the longest reign at #1 for a female artist on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs Chart.
Fans are loving I Am and the album’s first single, “Pray,” hit #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Digital Song Sales Chart. In addition to the album’s chart-topping debut, Hawthorne just received a 2020 Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Gospel Artist.
