Three years ago, Camille Newman was lying in bed battling a crushing depression, when she suddenly began humming a melody that lifted her spirits. "It was the begining of what would become 'God Is My Source,'" she says. "And I decided to finally put to song all of the issues I'd been dealing with." When the emerging gospel artist began recording her debut album, Unashamed, she knew she wanted to create a unique sound that incorporated all of her musical influences from techno to reggae to classic R&B. "General praise and worship albums are great, but I wanted to create music that was going to speak to an audience that was saved, but still dealing with a lot of issues that young females face, such as broken relationships and trying to make your mark in the world. Trying to juggle those issues while being a saved, single female is very hard," Camille says. The resulting Unashamed, is an album penned entirely by Camille Newman, that reflects upon how God pulled her out the many painful struggles she'd experienced in the way that only His word can. "I looked up to Mary J. Blige as a teenager, because she kept it real. So I wanted to keep that same realness, but infuse how God helped me through certain situations." The melding of contemporary sounds with gospel lyrics is evident from the CD'S opener and first single "Life Back", which would get the dance floor of any club or --church pew-- equally rocking. But Unashamed contains not only club banger style hits, but also classic ballads, such as "Love" and nods to Camille's Jamaican heritage with the reggae infused "Give Him the Praise." Already firmly established in the local New York City gospel scene, Camille recorded her CD as a way to spread her message of hope, love and resilience to more than just those who attend Christian churches on Sunday. Unashamed introduces the hottest undiscovered Christian artist to her inteded audience-Everyone.
