Her first single release in eight years was "Hold Me Tight" and is available on I –Tunes. The second single “Young Man Older Woman” promises to raise a few eyebrows. She also has an unexpected release, “Charade” which is her official co-writing debut. It’s the first time she was given a blue print for a song from someone else and gave it life. “It gave me a more in-depth experience with songwriting, which I love”, she says.” Songwriting is not just writing the song, it’s about giving lyrics a meaning, a purpose and a direction, which also happens to have music added to it.. She has written several inspirational and contemporary gospel songs but just recorded one “Thank You”. This was a “Thank You” to God for everything he brought her thru. There will be a song dedicated to him on each cd she records because without him “she says” I am nothing.
Youlanda is currently working on her next Cd “8 Reasons” which is due out in 2010. It will have as many genres of music that she listens’s to R&B, Contemporary Gospel Rock & Roll and maybe even a little country.
