Dubbed as “The Darling” of Gospel Music, Detroit native D’Shondra has now spread her wings with the release of her debut single “Trouble Don’t Last Always.” Featuring Gospel legend Kirk Franklin, the single is now available on all digital platforms. Grammy Award-winning artist, Kirk Franklin appears courtesy of Fo Yo Soul Recordings / RCA Records. D’Shondra’s self-entitled EP, “D’Shondra:The EP” releases July 2nd on all digital platforms.
Known for her iconic vocals and lyrics that capture the heart of listeners, D’Shondra has been afforded the opportunity to share the stage with iconic voices such as Marvin L. Winans, James Fortune and Kirk Franklin.
“The new D’Shondra single, “Trouble Don’t Last Always,” featuring Kirk Franklin, for me, is the beginning culmination of a dream come true. Breaking a new artist is NEVER easy. But when you have a unique artist, it automatically becomes a historic moment for you as a producer if done right! Quincy had Michael, Clive had Whitney, David had Celine, & I have D’Shondra.”, states D. DoRohn Gough, CEO of DoRohn Records.
The covering of this iconic song pays homage to a gospel music giant who helped pave the way and that was an important staple for DoRohn Records founder, the late David Gough and the Gough Family. Placing a new school spin on the Rev. Timothy Wright classic, “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, the song’s foot-tapping and soulful vibes reminds listeners that although trials and tribulations arise, they will not last always.
“This single and the entire EP is truly a labor of love for me. I want people to gain a better understanding of who I am. I want them to hear my heart. My love. My pain. And my triumph. I want them to see that with God anything is possible, and dreams WILL come true! It’s all about timing. This entire EP reflects God’s love not just for me, but also for every listener!” states D’Shondra.
