Biography

April Nevels is a powerful, gifted singer with one of the premiere signature voices in gospel music today. With a rich, vibrant tone like Oleta Adams and vocal styling similar to Karen Clark-Sheard, April’s soulful voice expresses authentic emotions much like that of Mary J. Blige.

The pain of divorce, depression and suicidal moments and her triumphant survival of it all, is what resonates in April’s life and ultimately in her music. “I didn’t see how I would make it out but God never left me,” says April as she embarks upon her first solo project “Krazy Praize” which is set for a Summer 2010 release on 7-Places record label. April emphatically lets the world know that it’s ok to “holla!” and give radical praise to God.

“Krazy Praize” is the debut single and title track offering the beginning lyrics, “Can’t sit still, can’t hold my praise…” and with April’s poignant delivery, few can sit still after the first note. Her vocal gift is just that magnetic. It was April’s distinctive, polished vocals that were lead on the 2009 Top 30 Billboard single “Clap Your Hands” from the album “Beautiful” which she recorded with her siblings, the Nevels Sisters.

Passionate about human causes as well as her music, April is one of many artists featured with Kirk Franklin on the inspiring song “Are You Listening” which was recorded during the 25th Stellar Awards weekend to benefit the Haitian relief fund for that country’s earthquake victims.

Recent appearances have included "The Dorinda Clark-Cole TV Show", The WORD Network's "Rejoice in the Word with Bishop Greg Davis" and several appearances are scheduled with the UniverSoul Circus Praise Night events.

A Youngstown, Ohio native, April is the youngest of five siblings—three sisters and one brother—and the proud mother of two beautiful daughters. Today, April has put all of the pain behind her and channels her energy into her music, her family and her church, Nevels Temple Church of God in Christ, where her father Elder Emmitt Nevels, Sr. is pastor.

April Nevels is moving full speed ahead but through every thread of her career and life, rest assure that she will ALWAYS “krazy praize.”

Lyrics

KRAZY PRAIZE

Written By: Donna-Marie Henry, Rob Sayles

Verse 1
Can't sit still, can't hold my praise
Raise my hands, lift his name
You can stare, do what you like
You'll miss your blessing while I'm getting mine

Cause I feel a breakthrough going down tonight
This could be your season, this could be your time
Get your eyes off of me, lift 'em to the Lord
Come on and praise him
Come on and praise him

Chorus
Everybody's got a right to praise
Even if you don't know what to say
Jump, shout, move, give a krazy praize
Holla, holla

Verse 2
People ask why I pray so hard
Why I sing that way
Are you serving God?
I just let them know that he moves in me
So excuse me if I want the world to see
But I'm not about to contain my praise
I'm a dance right now, I'm a shout today
Cause he's been too good for us not to show it
So come on praise him
Come on and praise him

Chorus

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Come on praise him
Come on praise him

Chorus
