"In 1994, Tramaine Hawkins released an album, 'To A Higher Place,' to a nation of hungry fans. Unlike its predecessor, 'The Joy That Floods My Soul,' this new album allows Tramaine to experiment with a fresh, new sound. Tramaine keeps in tow with a current sound Contemporary Gospel Music. All the songs feature a new sound from Tramaine, among the most memorable songs are: a fresh reverve of 'Amazing Grace,' a spiritually refreshing version of Joyce Kilmer's 19th Century poem 'Trees,' the encouraging 'Aim Your Arrow High,' and a 90s follow-up to 1986's 'Fall Down' titled 'Stand Your Ground.' With inspiring lyrics, spiritual messages and soaring mezzo-soprano vocals, Tramaine Hawkins furthers the cause of Christ and takes us 'To A Higher Place.'"
