Andrea René Williams Delivers New Inspirational Single, “Who Do I Run To”


(Washington, DC) - October 14, 2020 - Music industry professional Andrea René Williams is known as a former GRAMMY Awards Manager and a current publicist, who has represented artists such as Gladys Knight, Pastor Charles Jenkins and the late Andraé Crouch. But few know that the Berklee College of Music summa cum laude graduate and award-nominated publicist and marketer is a musician herself. A singer, songwriter, composer, arranger and producer, she launched her recording career last year with vocal and instrumental singles, including the 2020 WAMMIE Award-Nominated single, “Count It As Done”, and the smooth-jazz styled “Won’t Work”. Now Williams returns with an inspirational, CCM jam called “Who Do I Run To”. The single is currently available on digital music outlets such as iTunesApple MusicAmazon and Spotify.


“Who Do I Run To”, a musical reminder that no matter what happens in life God is the one we should go to, was produced and engineered by Andrea. Mark Reiter of the GRAMMY Award-Winning Bias Studios in Springfield, VA, mixed and mastered the track. “This song is a real change for me musically,” says Williams. “It has a throwback vibe and a fun, danceable groove but I don’t want people to miss the important message of the song. When trouble comes, it’s so easy for us to pick up the phone and call a spouse, significant other or friend. I want to believers to remember that even though loved ones may be able to give us advice, God is the one with all the answers we seek. He needs to be the first one we run to when challenges come.”


Starting her music career in 1998 at the Washington, DC Chapter of the Recording Academy, known for distributing the coveted GRAMMY Award, Andrea has penned hundreds of articles for Gospel music blogs and Christian publications. Long before becoming an interviewer of artists such as Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Yolanda Adams, Tramaine Hawkins and CeCe Winans, she honed her vocal skills in choirs for decades with renowned directors and Gospel greats such as Richard Smallwood, Byron Cage, Earnest Pugh and Ricky Dillard. A member of Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington, MD, she’s sung at many churches and in arenas, even rendering the National Anthem for the NBA’s Washington Wizards and Washington Mystics. 


Author of Live The Life You Sing About: How To Live With Integrity In The Gospel & Christian Music Industry, Williams is the owner of Andrea René Williams Music Ministries, LLC, a publicity, marketing and consulting agency for faith-based recording artists. A multi-faceted, serial entrepreneur, she’s been her own boss since 2006 with the full-time launch of Tehillah Enterprises after her departure from the Recording Academy. A new company coming in 2021, Faith & Song, will encourage music ministers to follow the principles of scripture as they pursue their musical passions and their God-given callings.

Alleged Deitrick Haddon nude photos surface

buzzz worthy. . . What do Anthony Weiner, a politician and Deitrick Haddon, a preacher have in common? Allegedly, sexting. Nude photos and text messages from the gospel artist and co-star of Oxygen's new hot reality show "Preachers of LA" (POLA) have surfaced.  According to the Funky Deniva blog , an ex-lover of Haddon's has supplied incriminating shots of the  "God Didn't Give Up on Me" singer dating back to 2008.  If there is any truth to this  allegation, this may be an extreme example of what critics of the show were afraid of -- exposing the frailties of men of the cloth. The story was posted on October 17, which was the last time Haddon tweeted. Funky Deniva says he received a text from a woman (who could be using an alias), who identified herself as "Simone the woman he cheated on his first wife with." Even though the affair would have occurred five years ago when Haddon was married to his ex-wife, gospel singer Damita Haddon

The truth about Gizelle and Jamal Bryant's Divorce

All season long cast mates have been commenting on the nerve Gizelle Bryant has to be a mean girl to newcomer Monique Samuels on Season 2 of the "Real Housewives of Potomac,"  especially considering her failed marriage with a prominent Baltimore Pastor Jamal Harrison Bryant.  Bryant was accused of infidelity. Gizelle has not denied that her ex was a serial cheater. Continuing to use her married name, she apparently has nothing to hide, but acts as if she has forgotten her struggles while trying to reinvent herself.  From the moment they met, Gizelle treated Monique like she was beneath her, having a contrary opinion about almost everything the wealthy young mother of two said. During the recent cast reunion, fed up with Gizelle's criticism, Monique the wife of retired NFL player Chris Samuels, told Giselle at least she does not have to rely on the tithes of church members.  While Gizelle has a new make up line, she has never mentioned having another job on the show
