“You Are” is the current single from North Carolina-based singer, songwriter, and speaker, Tomisena Hatchett.
From beginning to end, Tomisena’s expressive voice and well-placed vibrato engage you to worship, sing along, rewind, and do it again while reminiscing about the times in your life that you knew without a shadow of a doubt that the Almighty was, lyrically speaking, “a mighty strong tower” who carried, kept, and guided you.
Tomisena’s contemporary worship song is a must-listen.
