“One Touch,” the newest single from independent Christian artist Latrese is set to release to Christian AC and Gospel-formatted radio outlets today. “One Touch” is the follow up to “Rest In Love,” the singer’s first single, which debuted at No. 1 on CRC Weekly.
Latrese wrote “One Touch” with Pete Stewart, who also produced the project.
Latrese’s musical influences range from Rachael Lampa and For King and Country to Ed Sheeran and Adele, gravitating to “music with meaning,” she says. “These artists’ influences have been an inspiration that helped to spark the flame of her own passion for music,” says Latrese.
Latrese’s musical journey began to unfold in various ways. In middle school, she became part of the school chorus, followed by singing solos in church and school competitions. She also served as a Praise and Worship leader with her older sister in her church assembly. At the age of 19, Latrese started volunteering at concerts with Creation Concerts, where she experienced a feeling of true belonging. She recalls talking to God on her knees saying “God, everyone has told me that I am going to be a singer, but what do You say? Is this Your will for me?”
“His voice was loud and clear to me that day,” Latrese says. “He told me that it was His will for me and that He would lead and guide my footsteps.”
Although Latrese admits she has faced moments of doubts and frustrations while waiting for God’s plan to unfold, she has continued to trust God and wait for His direction.
“With each new step,” she says, “His plan is being revealed on my beautiful musical journey.”
