Powerhouse performer Evvie McKinney releases the upbeat anthem “Bring the Whole Hood,” her debut single on Motown Gospel/Capitol CMG. Co-written with her musical mentor, pop icon Meghan Trainor, this autobiographical track about the emerging star’s arrival features McKinney’s playful but passionate vocals, punctuated by a rhythmic piano and celebratory horns.
Evvie McKinney rose to prominence as the winner of the inaugural season of the TV singing competition The Four: Battle for Stardom on FOX. The young singer with Southern charm wowed judges Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor with her powerful voice and fearless stage presentation, packing a punch as she effortlessly covered iconic soul songs, like Aretha Franklin’s “I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You” and Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.” A multi-faceted performer with roots in the church, soul, and pop, the Memphis-born singer is readying music with a broad appeal to tell her powerful and inspiring story.
