“Her voice is so anointed. The recording is so crisp and has so many possibilities. We would like to use it as the theme song for our new cable show,” says Pastor Victor Hickson of Full Deliverance Baptist Church.

Transforming Praise, is the debut album of singer/songwriter Sherri Hicks, a Miami native and seasoned gospel performer. Sherri has been singing in church since she was 5 years old. Her single, “Changed,” has just been released and is available on Itunes Worldwide. The upcoming album boasts a myriad of influences ranging from retro Southern Gospel to Neo-Soul. Her favorite singers are Kim Burrell and Lisa McClendon. Sherri aims to transcend any one genre, and by bringing a fresh flavor to praise and worship in this millenium. Her first concert packed a full house, held at Harvest House in Dania Beach. She was accompanied by a full band and state of the art sound engineering. A Concertgoer Demetria Kimmerlain proclaims, "I am still in disbelief. I had tears in my eyes last night. All I can say is it's about time God opened up that floodgate. I have been asking and begging you to sing. You were amazing and so very anointed."

Sherri has been a background vocalist for many singing groups throughout South Florida, and is now ready to step out on her own. Her next single is a swing-inspired track entitled “Tumbling Down.” Nichelle Delaney-Ducksworth says, "This is going straight to #1 on the charts! Awesome song. Can't wait for the entire album to be released."
