“On My Journey”
Clarice Hall (2015)
Clarice Hall’s vocals are soulful and crisp–a lovely complement to the contemporary gospel styling of her mid-tempo single, “On My Journey.”
And just when her skillful yet unforced riffs get your head bobbing, she pays tribute to the old school with a turn of phrase (“Church folks sing it like this, y’all…”) that segues into a 20-second a cappella interlude.
Clarice’s vocal flair reaches across the genres of gospel, jazz, and R&B, and her music résumé includes performances with heavyweights in each genre.
Clarice is a native of Raleigh and a member of Word Empowerment Church in Durham. She concurrently serves as minister of music at Durham’s Mt. Olive AME Zion Church.
