"Mansfield woman's family, church help her record first CD"

MANSFIELD -- Through a donation from a friend who wishes to remain anonymous, Ursula Butts is able to live out one of her dreams -- making her own gospel CD.
"I've always sang since I was a little girl," she said. "It's always been a dream of mine to sing professionally, but life got in the way."
Butts will give a concert Friday at the Bookery, 2300 W. Fourth St., Ontario, and celebrate the release of her CD, "Live In Worship."
Her husband, Damon Butts, is her manager and her sons, Edward Avery and Jameel Butts, helped her write the songs.
"I've been blessed to keep it in the family," she said.
"I would like to travel and minister to the people," she said. "The gift God has given me is more than local."
Butts said the CD contains "not traditional gospel music."
"You will find a sound you're looking for," she said. "There is slow music, upbeat music and also a jazz interlude. I'm not stuck to one type of music."
She is working on a second CD, and said it will fuse contemporary rhythm and blues, 1970s-style soul, classical music, jazz and elements of alternative and hip hop.
Butts hopes "Live in Worship" will help single mothers and people who have a bad day. "It will let you know that there is hope and it will get better, “ she said. “God won’t leave you.”
Butts' church family, Greater St. John's Oasis of Love Church of God In Christ, has encouraged her singing career.
"The church has been a strong influence on my walk of faith," she said.
Butts said the actual recording took less than three hours.
As for the results, "I'm pleased for it to be my first project," she said. "It's all coming to fruition and I'm excited."
