Award winning gospel jazz-styled artist Deanna Ransom is featured this month on the cover of I AM Magazine, a quarterly gospel music industry publication. The feature discusses all areas of Ransom’s musical career including her personal trials and triumphs as well as the success of “I Hear You”, her sophomore project on TOC Records. 

“I Hear You” has earned Ransom much acclaim including the 2011 Rhythm of Gospel Award for Urban/Rhythm and Praise Song of the Year for the soulful single “Mercy and Kindness”. And most recently, Ransom was nominated for the 2012 Rhythm of Gospel Awards for Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year and Music Video of the Year for her “I Hear You” live concert DVD. 

A true humanitarian and advocate for various charitable causes, Ransom was headliner of the “Hope Lives Forever Cancer Benefit Tour” which traveled across states such as Illinois, Alabama, Michigan, Tennessee and Kansas. Ransom is scheduled to participate in other benefits for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and also events supporting victims of domestic violence.

Ransom was featured along with Grammy Award winning gospel star Marvin Sapp at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware. Gospel’s elite artists Yolanda Adams, Dorinda Clark-Cole and the late, legendary Rev. Timothy Wright have all collaborated on stage with the New Jersey-born Ransom. And, the incomparable Melba Moore was featured with Ransom in the duet, “Rise Sister” from Ransom’s freshman album “Never Say Never”.  Her debut release resulted in her winning 2005 Tiffany Gospel Independent Female Artist of the Year Award.
