Veteran gospel vocalist Andrea Dumas who has backed up a who’s who of the gospel world has finally stepped from the backstage shadows into the spotlight. The dynamic soprano’s debut CD “Celebrate” (Autumn Day Entertainment) is a fusion of spirited praise and worship songs and heartfelt gospel tunes.

She led “God of Promise” on Smallwood’s 2011 Billboard #1 CD “Promises” and has also contributed to the Greater Mt.
