“I’m A Winner”
From the upcoming EP, I’ve Got to Win (2016)
By Libra Boyd

“I’m A Winner” is the uptempo inspirational debut single from Tonya Lewis-Taylor’s forthcoming EP, I’ve Got to Win.
Abundant with self-affirmations, Tonya (pronounced Tone-yah) makes one declaration after another, echoed by her background vocalists:
“I can do all things through Christ…”
“I can be whatever He wants me to be…”
“I can have whatever He wants me to have…”
“I’m the head and not the tail…”
Tonya wrote and co-produced “I’m A Winner” with Martin Christie and her husband J.P. Taylor.
