You can see this as ‘wonderful’ or ‘amazing’ or better still for some people, ‘bizarre’ or ‘weird’. The fact is, the listing of the new album (Heart. Passion. Persuit) from America’s Gospel sensation – Tasha Cobbs Leonard reveals a feature of the Hiphop rapper, Nicki Minaj.
Niki Minaj is featured on the song titled “I’m Getting Ready,” the eighth track of the album.
Tasha Cobbs’ album which will be released on August 25, 2017 is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
Other artists featured on the album include Anna Golden, William Murphy, Jimi Cravity, and Kierra Sheard.
Cobbs-Leonard broke thew news in an Instagram post where she encouraged others to ‘Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do.’
THIS!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣‼️‼️‼️…. “Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently.” Romans 14:1 MSG #KingdomAgentsEverywhere #ImGettingReady #MyGirlSMASHED #IfeelJesusEveryTimeIHearIt #tears #IntoAllTheWorld #SheknowsGodBetterthanSomaYall #andHeKnowsHer!!!!
