[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/P4iQKFcGJts" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

We are proud to announce Atlanta based future soul singer Dezaray Dawn as our April Next Step winner! The German-born gal has a voice of power, comfort, and euphoric healing – something like what you feel when listening to Fertile Ground’s lead singer, Navasha Daya.

Thus far, Dezaray has released two EPs, Chameleon and Deep, the latter being a collaboration with Marc Mac of the famed 4Hero. Dezaray’s latest single and video is for the sophisticated downtempo and soulful house style “Over It.” Easily repeat worthy – we won’t say how many times we’ve already ran this back. Be sure to grab the free download below.

Folks loving whey they hear can look forward to her debut album, The Dawning, out this summer. In the meantime, we’re very happy to premier “The Dawning” intro track. And look out for some tour dates to be announced very soon!
