Gospel powerhouse Jekalyn Carr is teaming up as she is featured on the new version of Leanna Crawford's 'Mean Girls.'
At the end of April in 2021, Crawford released her single 'Mean Girls' along with her six-song EP. On July 23, she released a new version, featuring Jekalyn Carr.
"I was thrilled when Jekalyn said she would sing on this song and I love how it turned out," Crawford posts to Facebook the day of the release.
The upcoming Christian artist worked with Matthew West in 2020 before she was signed to his label, Story House Collective.
"The song’s inspiration came from me scrolling through Instagram. There, Natalie Grant shared an impactful story. She and one of her daughters were at a doctor’s office. And, in a hallway, they saw a daughter, who was with her mother, on a weight scale. Her mom exclaimed, very loudly, how her daughter had gained a lot of weight," says Crawford in an interview with New Release Today.
Since her start into the Christian music world, Crawford has been a positive role model in young girls lives.
"Thankfully, we have a Heavenly Father and His words that He speaks over us. Those words from God matter the most," says Crawford.
Carr is also making waves in the gospel music scene, and recently co-hosted the 36th Stellar Awards Show.
"My dear friend, I’m so happy to have collaborated with you on this beautiful song. You’re such a jewel and I pray nothing but the best for you," says Carr on Facebook.
