The legendary Lady Tramaine Hawkins started singing with The Edwin Hawkins Singers when she was just 17 years old. She went on to lend her voice to Walter Hawkins’ Love Center Chorale, leading some of his biggest hits like “Changed” and “Goin’ Up Yonder.” Not only did she become a Love Alive staple, but she also married Walter Hawkins and had a very successful solo career of her own, trailblazing gospel and inspiration music into uncommon places like the the historic New York City dancehall, Studio 54.
After divorce, much criticism, and a couple brief hiatuses from music, Lady Tramaine Hawkins sat with me to talk about how through it all, she never lost her praise. Ironically, I Never Lost My Praise was the name of the title cut of her then newest and last released project. She was very transparent about her joys and hurts. With me, spoke publicly for the first time about her divorce from the legendary late Walter Hawkins. This was one of the most encouraging interviews I have ever conducted in my almost 30 years of gospel radio. Listen in and let Lady Tramaine Hawkins not just encourage you by her music, but also by her words.
