Nneka Best


I am a vocalist and song writer of Contemporary Gospel music with an R & B feel. My debut CD, "Higher Than I", represents conversations that I have had with God over the years as He has taken me from grace to grace. My prayer is that as you relate to the lyrics and music, you will be blessed.
