Love's Taking Over

Danita Mumphard

In cart Not available Out of stock

This smooth soul album features eight smooth, jazzy, soulful, and passionate songs that will help set the mood just right for you and that special someone.

'Love's Taking Over' is currently winning the affections of the soul fraternity and one tune in particular is creating major waves.... the lovely, gentle, laid-back 'Sincerely Yours'. Produced (like the entire album) by husband Robert Mumphard Jr, the song has the feel of Deniece Williams' 'Free' about it. It begins with a short instrumental shimmer before Ms M glides gently over a tender lyric with the same understated passion and purity of Niecey.... one of 2015's best so far and worth investigating. soulandjazzandfunk.com

"This new album is very impressive release. The killer track is the opening tune, which has echoes of the Deniece Williams evergreen, ‘Free’. Entitled ‘Sincerely Yours’, it would be a real shame if this song is lost in the mass of pasteurised/homogenised and regurgitated ‘same as it ever was’, which seems to be bulging at the radio wave seams. Danita’s voice comes through with great purity and clarity, and is a definite recommendation in 2015, for those who are looking for something more in their music these days. ‘Into You’, ‘Crazy’ (great groove in this track), and ‘Wait Until The Time Is Right’ (another winner), all go to make this album well worth picking up. You can pick up Danita’s back catalogue on CD Baby. Worth the entrance fee for ‘Sincerely Yours’ alone.... Recommended stuff. soulwalking.co.uk

Presenting Jazz Stylist Danita Mumphard

Soulful music reaches its zenith with Danita Mumphard’s soothing blend of gospel and jazz.

Soulful music reaches its zenith with Danita Mumphard’s soothing blend of gospel and jazz. For those who love music for its calming, meditative effects, Danita’s voice will surpass expectations.

Danita, the featured singer with the legendary jazz group
Trio Trés Bien and a finalist in the national 2005 Kraft Gospel Talent Search, is making a name for herself in the gospel and jazz worlds. Danita, a soprano with incredible range, calls her style smooth jazz gospel. “Gospel and jazz aren’t worlds apart,” Danita said. “Both allow for artistic expression, and both move people in indescribable ways.”

For Danita, both jazz and gospel represent freedom. With jazz, she enjoys the freedom to improvise, scat and hit stratospheric notes. With gospel, she is free to express her abiding love of God and her fellow man with inspiring vocals.

Danita’s new CD, “Watch God Work,” features 15 contemporary, traditional and smooth jazz gospel songs. Original compositions “Keeps On Blessing Me” and “Worthy Is The Lamb” will keep you enthralled. Danita’s intricate vocalizations give favorites like “To Teach Me” and “The Prayer” new inspiration.

Danita has enriched numerous jazz and gospel performances. Her appearances at the Whitaker Jazz Festival and St. Louis Divas Show, to name a few, have garnered positive reviews. She has been the opening act for such gospel legends as Tramaine Hawkins and the late Ronald Winans.

Danita is a former member of the Wings of Inspiration, an East St. Louis community choir co-founded by her husband, Robert Mumphard, Jr. Danita calls Robert her “musical soulmate,” and the couple has produced two other CDs—“Eternally” (gospel) and “With Love” (jazz)—in addition to “Watch God Work.” They have three children: Robbie, Amarria, and Jared.

Danita is a member of St. Louis Bible Way Church and has been the featured psalmist at churches in St. Louis, East St. Louis, Atlanta, and Louisville, Ky. Mumphard, a graduate of Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, is an academic adviser at her alma mater.
