One of the greatest trumpet players in music has just bedazzled her entire trumpet in Swarovski crystals to kick off the release of her new album “Evolution of a Winner”, the follow up to her 2016 Billboard smash hit “Winner” which debuted at number one on the Billboard Jazz Album chart and spent over twenty-five weeks on the Billboard’s Jazz and Gospel music charts.
“Evolution of a Winner” also debuted at #1 in two of the Billboard Jazz charts and is climbing in top ten in several others. Syreeta recently hosted an album release weekend for her new project from September 15-17 with a press run from Chicago to New York. The event included two live performances at Agape Family Worship Center in Rahway, NJ for a crowd of 5,000 people.
Music fans have been singing the praises of Syreeta Thompson for over a decade. She has been known to share the stage with other gospel greats such as Hezekiah Walker and Dorinda Clark-Cole. Her accomplishments have also earned her a position as the Director of Arts Education for Dorinda Clark Cole’s Singers and Musician’s Conference, a renowned musical convention that inspires and instructs thousands of ministers and performers each year.
Syreeta is a Grammy Award winner and a graduate of Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and she also holds a Master’s Degree from NYU in film scoring, jazz composition, and arranging. She has also skillfully written six curriculums for the East Orange School District and is a Master Music Educator with the New Jersey Education Association.
“Evolution of a Winner” is available in physical CD and digital download on www.TrumpetLady.com, and Amazon, iTunes, and all other major media distribution sites.
