Listen to “Sinner,” Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens’ new single

While this blog is the furthest it could be from gospel music, it doesn’t feel all that strange to write about Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens.

The group’s new single, “Sinner,” is gospel music at its realest, where everyone is welcomed with open arms.

After a brief intro, “Sinner” launches right into soulful lyrics that calm, even though Shelton seems troubled. The Gospel Queens offer Shelton simple reinforcement.

Shelton’s vocals are weathered and rich, and she happily rejoices in going to the river. Her voice never sounded sweeter.

“I’m a sinner, yes I am” Shelton proclaims, proud to be imperfect.
