Gospel Soundcheck

TykaNelson.jpgCJ, a columnist with the Minneapolis Star Tribune, reported that pop legend Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson has released a Gospel CD called A Brand New Me. Nelson tells CJ, “Every song is about God. It’s all about Jesus. It’s a gospel CD, everything leads back to God.”
Prince is a Jehovah’s Witness and while Nelson attends a Pentacostal church, she tells CJ she’s not any religion, adding, “I still study with Jehovah’s Witnesses, so I say I’m Apostolic Pentecostal Jehovah’s Witness Seventh-Day Adventist Jew.”
I think that’s a joke. Or maybe not.
Listening to the song clips at, the music is dancey, it’s pop, it’s … well, it’s kinda Prince. You can also hear songs at Tyka Nelson’s MySpace page.
