Today, GRAMMY Award-winning Gospel music maven Tamela Mann announced the upcoming release of a new deluxe edition of her sensational Tillymann Music Group album, Overcomer. Tamela also makes history this week as the first gospel artist to chart nine No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart, with her most recent single “He Did It For Me” now holding the top spot. Heralded as some of the superstar’s best work, Overcomer: Deluxe Edition builds upon the original version’s themes of resilience, strength, purpose and the beauty of faith, with an offering of both all new tracks and intimate live renditions of fan favorites from Overcomer. Overcomer: Deluxe Edition will be distributed by The Orchard, and available as a digital release across all major music streaming platforms on July 22, 2022.
At a time when the world looks to rebuild following a turbulent chapter, Overcomer: Deluxe Edition will resonate with fans of Tamela’s music, as she reminds us that with faith we can overcome the challenges before us, receive healing and find hope. Her awe-inspiring vocals and profound lyrics on the album are supported by a prolific group of special guest features including the breathtaking ballad “Superheroes Prayer” with Yolanda Adams, the uplifting and joyous “Hello God” with Wyclef Jean and Kirk Franklin, the powerful track “Finished Work” with Todd Dulaney, and stunning new live renditions of “Help Me” with Tim Rogers and The Fellas, and “Finished,” which is written by Travis Greene.
The original version of Overcomer made a splash on the charts, immediately entering the Top Gospel Albums upon release and earning Tamela her seventh No. 1 spot in Billboard’s Gospel Airplay charts with the debut No. 1 single, “Touch From You.” The follow-up single, “Help Me,” notched Tamela’s eighth No. 1 single on the Billboard chart and the current single, “He Did It For Me” is No. 1 on the chart this week. Marking her ninth single to take the top spot on the chart, Tamela is making history as the first gospel artist to achieve this. Overcomer: Deluxe Edition takes what made the original version great and turns it into a new masterpiece. Listeners will hear Tamela elegantly proclaim her faith, lead worship, and deliver heavenly music in the magnificent way she knows how.
