I had the privilege to talk to this gospel powerhouse about her love for Detroit and why “Saturday Night Live … A Salute to Sunday Morning Church” is such a great idea.

I can’t begin to tell you how much the music of the Hawkins Singers and Tramaine Hawkins has affected my life! So I was extremely happy to have a conversation with the legend herself. Lady Tramaine is in the Motor City for a special event tonight and we talked about that, as well as one of my favorite songs that brought me through a tough time in my life a few years ago.
I get Chanel. I grew up in a house filled with music and instead of doing housework in a timely manner… I could be found listening to my mom’s music singing loudly until I was reminded about what I was “supposed” to be doing. And, so it was with Chanel. I had an awesome conversation with this Trin-i-tee 5:7 singer about her background, Why her CD is called Trin-i-tee 5:7 According to Chanel and how a letter she wrote to Tramaine Hawkins, shaped her destiny.
You can grab your copy of Trin-i-tee 5:7 According to Chanel in stores and online today!
