Tour Tyler Texas, publicist Clarence Shackelford attended this year's 24th annual Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards on February 24 - 27, 2022 in Houston, Texas, and Yvonne Matthews of Mobile, Alabama was one of their Gospel Artists. She is a singer, songwriter, musician, retired educator, and retired minister of music. She has traveled extensively throughout the United States and has toured Europe sharing her musical gifts. Her debut album GLAD has brought her gospel music career greater visibility and more performance opportunities.
The "Glad" music video garnered over 1 million views and her single, "I Owe You Me" music video garnered over 603,000 views on her Facebook artist page, as well as thousands on her Official Yvonne Matthews Music YouTube channel. With this exposure and success, she has continued moving higher by releasing a Christmas EP YVONNE'S CHRISTMAS WISH FOR YOU in November 2020.
On September 30, 2021, she released a single: “Walk In the Light,” suitable for listening to any time of year, but especially during the Holiday Season. Yvonne’s deep sultry voice and jazzy/churchy style will put you in a jubilant frame of mind for the season.
With the prolonging of the pandemic and with viewership and listeners increasing from over the world, Yvonne was inspired to complete the CHURCH GIRL project, releasing it on November 7th. These seven “churchy” tracks, which include “Walk In the Light,” will get you “moving” and will definitely stir your soul.
Having so many powerful songs on her CHURCH GIRL project, on May 16, 2022, Yvonne is releasing another single: "Jehovah Shammah" written by James Harris-White III, recording artist, and her former student.
CHURCH GIRL honors her family legacy and is produced by Rogest “Rosco” Carstarphen, Jr. (Jonathan McReynolds, C. Ashley Brown-Lawrence, Doe), and includes songs written by her friends and music colleagues, as well as songs written and arranged by her and Rogest, who is a Grammy & Stellar Award winner (Jonathan McReynolds) and he received a Dove Award “nod” (Jonathan McReynolds, Doe). On this CD, one of the songs, “He Lives,” features Mobile’s own and American Idol contestant, Tyler N. Allen, and recording artist, C. Ashley Brown-Lawrence.
Known for her Front Porch Ministry and spontaneous Pop-up Praise moments on social media (like, follow, and subscribe), Yvonne shows that she loves what she has done for years: singing to and for the glory of God. Experience her God-given talent!
