Biography

BIO-My Story

"Tawana's" music is honest, heartfelt expressions of life happening along the journey...."Tawana" writes and performs songs that have a unique way of sharing with others the struggles, victories, celebrations, praises, and just a "normal" day in various chapters of her life. Like a good book, with God's hand-turning the pages, she invites her audience to take a look at life through her eyes.

Attending one of "Tawana's" concerts, is more of an experience rather than just another show. Her lyrics go straight to the heart. She then, allows God to take over from there. Whether it's a secular or a christian venue, "Tawana" shares her faith woven within the context of her songs. And she does this in a Christ -like, loving manner. This is well received by her audience which often leads to common ground and ministry.

Through the pages of her journey, God has blessed "Tawana" for her desire to honor him through her life and music ministry. "Tawana" has made T.V. appearances on "Inspire The Desire" and "Dr. Delagraentiss Presents". One of her songs, "Living Water" received airplay on internet radio in 2006. And "Tawana's" new song, "Dancin' On The Clouds" is currently # 11 on Indieheaven.com Fan Fave Charts in July 2007. Currently, "Just Sing" is in radio rotation on KBCU in Newton, KS. She will be receiving more airplay in the next month from 3 other radio stations. Also, "Tawana" was nominated for the Momentum Awards (Indep. Christian Artist Award) in 2006 & 2007 in 3 cateogries: Song Of The Year-"Living Water", Contemporary Artist of The Year, and Female Artist of The Year. "Tawana" considers it an honor for others to consider her for these opportunities of recognition. But she's quick to say that "It's All About Jesus" and making him the "Star".

"Tawana" is currently doing production work with Nashville producer, Jeff Nelson for her first CD project. Her expected release is September 2007.

"Tawana's" desire is to share God's love & message of salvation through her music ministry (Matthew 28: 19 & 20). And to honor him with her talents and life as she continues through the pages of this journey that he's chosen for her.

"Tawana" is available for church and "family friendly" community concerts and special events in her local area as well as around Texas and out of state. For booking inquires, please contact her at: Bookingtja@yahoo.com.

Just Sing

Written By: Tawana J. Albert

1st Verse
Stand on the hood of your car.
And sing right where you are.
Sing it out & sing it loud,
even if you draw a crowd!

Just sing at the top of your lungs.
Just sing like you're having fun.
Just sing like there's no-one there.
Just sing like you do not care...
Just Sing!

2nd Verse
Drive with your windows down & make and awesome sound!
Let the whole world hear.
What do you have to fear?

Just sing at the top of your lungs.
Just sing like you're having fun.

Just sing like you do not care...
Just Sing!

Living In Limbo

Written By: Tawana J. Albert

1st Verse:
Driving down highway no where again.
Running into another dead end.
Stop for directions I should do.
But I need a sign, a compass, or a clue!

Chorus:
Living In Limbo-Lost in my own doubt.
Living In Limbo-Lord which way is out?
Living In Limbo-Show me what is real?
Living In Limbo-I want to live your will.
Oh, Oh-Living In Limbo

2nd Verse:
Unsure of which path you say to take...
What if I'm wrong or I make a mistake?
Patience is no friend of mine...
So Lord, I'll let you lead this time...

Chorus:
Living In Limbo-Lost in my own doubt.
Living In Limbo-Lord which way is out?
Living In Limbo-Show me what is real?
Living In Limbo-I want to live your will.
Oh, Oh-Living In Limbo

Bridge:
Seems I've been down this way before.
But you tell me to trust you more!

Chorus (End Song):
Living In Limbo-Lost in my own doubt.
Living In Limbo-Lord which way is out?
Living In Limbo-Show me what is real?
Living In Limbo-I want to live your will.

Just a note to say I made it through.
That all my dreams have come true.
Leaving was harder than you know.
Staying was harder-I had to go.

Praising my Savior face to face!

Don't be sad when you think of me.
I'm where I've always wanted to be.
Standing before Almighty's throne.
Praise God-I am finally home!

Shouting hallelujah-I've been changed!
Dancin' on the Clouds-what a beautiful place.
Praising my Savior face to face!
Dancin' on the clouds...

Through the eyes of paradise-I can see your tears.
Remember-I've waited for this treasure many years!

Discography

Dancin' On The Clouds-airplay, Just Sing-airplay, Living In Limbo-airplay, & Living Water.

Set List

Usually anywhere from 30 mins. to 1 & 1/2 hour depending on the venue's needs.

Usual Set List (Will Change some as I have new songs being finished):
"Living Water", "Dancin' On The Clouds", "You Are the One" or "Why Do I do", "Living In Limbo" or "More Than They Know", "Just Sing", a couple praise & worship cover tunes (Usually something like Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, or Hillsong)-if appropriate for the venue, and I usually finish up with "You Won The Battle" (It depends on the venue if I do this one-it's my hardest rock song. Good lyrics just maybe alittle too rock for some venues).
Note: If I don't do the worship music, I do more of my originals. I can throw in a "clean/family friendly" cover song if requested. But I will do more Christian songs than anything else (that's what I sing & write). "Keep Christ In Christmas" will be added soon to my set list. It's currently being produced & I will be recording it in the next few weeks.
