Each June, music fans around the world come together to celebrate the indelible influence that Black musicians have made on culture with Black Music Month. To mark the month, Amazon Music has worked to put together a brand-new slate of content that honors the legacy of the Black artists whose music soundtracks our lives and defines our culture.
Throughout the month of June, Amazon Music has invited some of the most exciting Black artists across a wide spectrum of genres to record a new collection of brand-new Amazon Originals songs. Debuting Fridays in June, the series kicks off today with a brand-new cover of “Falling in Love with Jesus” from two-time GRAMMY-nominated gospel artist Koryn Hawthorne.
“This song is so special to me because it’s what I live for. Regardless of life’s circumstances the love and comfort of Jesus has pulled me through,” said Koryn Hawthorne. “Releasing this song during Black Music Month is also important to me because Gospel music is the foundation of Black American music, and the message is a reminder of healing and strength.”
