"A Music Evolution of Transcendence
Rev. Yolanda is definitely an artist who enjoys mixing styles, and "Transcendence" is another example of her musical diversity. The EP description reads, "American Southern Blues, Doo Wop, Country and Southern Gospel" - and Rev. Yolanda does a fantastic job of authentically arranging and performing the Doo Wop/50's style. I felt like I was listening to the "Hairspray" soundtrack. The production, by Philip Carroll, has a "live" feel to it even though it's a studio production, which only adds to the fun experience of hearing Rev. Yolanda perform these songs. Be prepared to be completely transcended - possibly even a little "non-binary, feminine, and hairy!"- Gay Christian Singer Songwriter Shawn Thomas http://www.shawnthomasonline.com
Another amazing and inspirational cd from Rev Yolanda. These 3 tracks present an exciting new sound that will hook you from the first notes. I highly recommend this cd as well as all of the others from this talent with a truly loving heart." -Jeff G.
Transcendence- Lyrics and music by Rev. Yolanda -a 50's Doo Wop in G
intro- DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DO DO DOOOOO WOP WOP(repeat)
VS 1-Transcendence, Radical Faerie, gender queer.
Where everything I thought I knew disappeared.
I'm non binary
Feminine but hairy.
Both masculine and feminine lovin my padded underwear.
VS 2- It doesn't matter what I choose to wear.
My identity's not a bodily affair.
And I know that its hard to believe
But my Spirit transcends these boundaries.
B section-So you rock me and I roll you
What is a Gal s'possed to do?
When there's more than 2 sides to the story?
What do I do?
I change the world's view!
C Section- Oh IIIIIIIIIII'm living in TRANS cendent Light!
My whole world is set aright!
'Cause I'm not afarid of who I am.
I once was lost but now I'm found.
I'm living in
I''m lovin in
I'm kissin and a huggin in....
