Theresa Pinkney Makes A Bold Musical Statement With New CD, “Me Against The World” releasing July 12, 2011
“Me Against The World” is a 15-track project filled with a mixture of urban, R&B, pop and dance styles, yet is fully gospel. The title tune and inspirational cut finds the artist singing about her dogged determination to stick with the Lord, no matter what. It’s clear that this singer will make sure that nothing will ever stop her praise. Other memorable tracks are the beautiful and sweet “Never Alone” and the mellow and ethereal-sounding “You Are”. “Silent Praise” is another jewel that doesn’t fall short in the area of inspiration. Those who have ever felt that they “didn’t have enough tongues to praise Him” will easily be able to relate to the moving track. There are many uplifting songs on this impressive debut. Although Pinkney loves each and every track on her new release, one holds a special place in her heart, “Promise”.

Pinkney Contributes Portion of CD Sales To Cancer Research
One of Theresa’s closest friends and mentors loved the song, “Promise”. A constant source of encouragement to Theresa, she helped her understand the importance of using her gift to the glory of God. Unfortunately, her friend was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer and played the song regularly for inspiration, even until the day that she passed. Because of the impact she had on Theresa’s life, Theresa is donating a portion of the proceeds of the CD to Relay For Life, part of The American Cancer Society, in memory of her friend. Relay For Life is an overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of the American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
Theresa wants to leave listeners of Me Against The World with one message: boldness. “I want people who listen to my project to learn to walk in boldness and not in fear. I want people to shine their light as bright as they can; don’t ever let anyone dim your light. Don’t conform to the world; let the world conform to you.”
