Chattanooga Native T-RAN Gets Musical Stamp Of Approval From Grammy Award Winning Singer-Songwriter Ne-Yo

Sunday, April 25, 2021

International gospel artist, T-RAN, has been creating and performing inspirational music since childhood. Many Chattanoogans remember his early beginnings with his musical group, 22Visionz. T-RAN has since taken his solo musical career across the world and has recently gotten the attention of Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter, Ne-Yo.

T-RAN has released two new music videos for his latest new singles, “Save Me” and “Overcomer” and with much traction in major cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco, T-RAN feels that it is a major stamp of approval to have Ne-Yo support his new sound of gospel music for his single “Save Me” featuring Grammy Award winning bluegrass artist, Kate Lee O’Connor.

T-RAN said, “Save Me brings transparency and vulnerability to gospel music. It lets listeners know that because you are a Christian and sing about the Lord doesn’t mean that you’re perfect and do not experience issues in life. I want listeners to know that none of us are perfect and our issues do not always come from others but also from within ourselves. That’s why the song says, 'save me from myself.' it’s a song about our internal battles.” And Ne-Yo agrees. The artist sent a reaction video to T-RAN’s single “Save Me” where he is seen smiling and nodding in agreement to T-RAN’s relatable lyrics. 

Ne-Yo shared T-RAN’s music video to his social media platform and has invited T-RAN to join him on Instagram LIVE to discuss T-RAN’s projects and musical career. To catch T-RAN’s live session with Ne-Yo, follow him on social media at @TRAN22V. T-RAN’s music can be found on all digital music platforms as well as his music videos on YouTube. T-RAN is grateful for the recognition from Ne-Yo and hopes to collaborate with the artist even more in the near future.

Please Stop Calling Us “Latinx”

We’re asking nicely, because we think the use of the term has been mostly well-intentioned.

This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
