And Soars To Top 30 With Hit Song “The Promise”
Over a year after making a splash on to the national stage as the songwriter and soloist on Ricky Dillard & New G’s #1 gospel radio smash “Amazing,” TIFF JOY is now making waves as a star attraction with her own radio single “The Promise” that swam into Billboard Magazine’s Top 30 Gospel Airplay chart this week with a #26* debut. The soul-stirring track hails from the Chicago native’s self-titled inaugural album “TIFF JOY” (Walkway Music Group/Tyscot Records) that was released last week and is selling briskly on iTunes’ Christian & Gospel Top Albums digital sales chart.
The soul-lifting twelve-song project displays the full range of TIFF JOY’s velvety alto spanning the funkified worship of “You Are” and the silky soul balladry of “All That You Do” to the tender, breathtaking vocal performance on the melody “I’m All Yours” and the inspiring rock opera-styled tune “Healer.” The collection also features a very different but equally moving rendition of her breakthrough hit “Amazing.” She transforms the former high-octane rhythm for a mid-tempo vibe that features a more nuanced and sophisticated vocal approach than the raspy, no-holds barred performance she delivers on the Ricky Dillard & New G incarnation of the song.
TIFF JOY (Tiffany Joy McGhee) is one of four children born to Bishop Timothy B. McGhee and Pastor Bernadine Bell-McGhee of the Free Spirit Ministerial Worship Center in South Holland, IL. She grew up singing in church and after graduating from DeVry University in 2010, she launched a songwriting career. Over the years, she’s collaborated with gospel heavyweights such as Anita Wilson, VaShawn Mitchell and Fred Hammond. She wrote and led the song “Amazing” that anchors Ricky Dillard & New G’s 2014 Grammy Award nominated comeback album of the same name. The rousing track spent an astounding 30 weeks at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart. It won TIFF JOY a Dove Award nomination and earned her a Stellar Award for Song of the Year in 2015. The buzz around TIFF JOY inspired Vashawn Mitchell to sign TIFF JOY to his Walkway Music Group recording label and now the sky’s the only limit for this fresh new talent. “He believed in it and I’m forever grateful for him investing in me,” TIFF JOY told Hallels.com in a published interview this past week.
