Damita: Damita

Damita believes that people are sick and tired of the raunchiness in a lot of today’s R&B. On her debut CD, the former back-up singer for Aretha Franklin challenges the field with urban grooves that bridge the divide between gospel and mainstream music. Damita and her husband, Deitrick Haddon, have penned a well-rounded set of songs that are lyrically satisfying no matter what your taste or faith.
Released: 9/26/2000
Label: Atlantic
