Koryn Hawthorne is a new artist who broke into the musical spotlight through her performance on the talent search show 'The Voice' where she placed fourth under Pharrell Williams's tutelage. This is Koryn's first EP. The strength and richness of her low and husky vocals comes through best on the 'Speak The Name' track. The other tracks are upbeat R&B-style songs with a Christian message. No FCC violations. * Favorite tracks 2,3,4. Album reviewed by Christina Erwin, 'Lift Jesus Higher!'
