Rebecca Crews, known for her hit reality show on BET, The Family Crews alongside her actor/comedian husband Terry Crews (Old Spice commercials, Are We There Yet?, Blended, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire), will release her debut single, "Can I Stay,” this summer.
Falling into the smooth jazz genre with a gospel/pop influence, fans can download the summer jam starting July 8, when it impacts radio stations across the country. The single will be a teaser of what is yet to come with her full-length album, scheduled for October 2014.
The former Gospel singer wrote the inspirational track after a spiritual experience.
"It was so overwhelming, that the lyrics immediately started flowing while I was heading home from church," explains Crews. "I felt like I was able to remove myself from the chaotic world around me, and see clearly that God has a plan for me and my future. Having that security and peace was something I wanted to share with the world!"
Infused with musical influences from Sade, Adele to Norah Jones, "Can I Stay" is a mixture of genres that will touch any listener. With Haskel Jackson (Genesoul Productions) serving as Co-Producer, Crews not only produced the single, but wrote and arranged the song as well. Additionally, the multi-talented artist also played many of the accompanying instrumentation as a keyboardist, covering piano, strings and other programming.
"This music is lo-o-ong overdue," laughs the former beauty queen. "I have been busy tending to my big family, my larger-than-life husband, and producing a hit reality show. Now that the kids are older and things are looking up for us, I know the timing is perfect!"
