New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Carla Williams new single Love to Gain, a duet with Kirk Sullivan of the Grammy nominated and eight time DOVE award winning group 4HIM, is available for pre-sale on iTunes and Google Play today. This song, penned by Williams and Steve Dorff (a celebrated writer with 11 Billboard #1s), was inspired when Carla was teeming with admiration for the bountiful blessings she had recently experienced in her life.
"I was on a flight back from Los Angeles and the lyrics just poured out of me," recalls Carla. "I was reflecting on all of the amazing experiences I had encountered in such a short period of time. As soon as I landed, I texted Steve and told him I had lyrics, now I needed music. He flawlessly wrote the most beautiful melody. I sat this song on a shelf for ten years and ran into Kirk from 4HIM at another airport. We talked about how we should sing or write together and that's when I realized that Love to Gain was about to come to life."
Produced by Tom Hemby, a four time DOVE award winner, Love to Gain will be released on BelleFire Records to all major online retailers on Friday, February 22.
"It's a song with a marvelous message," describes Tom. "This song revealed itself musically. I was so thrilled by the time we got Carla's vocal on there as the song just kind of exploded. I hope a lot of people are blessed by it."

About Carla Williams
Carla will return to the music scene with the release of her new Christian single Love to Gain on February 22. This Bayou based torch singer has been performing in church since she was three years old. Raised in a Southern Baptist household, she encountered contemporary worship tunes when she attended a non-denominational high school. "It was during chapel at Faith Academy that I really dove into worship music." For an act that was applauded by Digital
Rodeo as being "full of raw and powerful honesty," Carla has always written or chosen to sing songs that related to her own life. "If I sing it, I have lived it. I love the storytelling that one can develop in a ballad." Writing with Steve Dorff, a 3x Grammy & 6x Emmy nominated writer with 11 Billboard #1s, has been a steadfast and fruitful partnership for Carla since her first record I'm Home in 2008. Now, under the production wings of Tom Hemby, a 4x DOVE Award Winner, Carla has discovered a new foundation in her faith and her music with her latest release. "Life and the music business have both changed so much since my first album and record deal. I now have a fourth child, I got to take the final journey through my grandmother's battle with Parkinson's disease and I own my own business. It's been an incredible journey and I'm excited to share it through my music." Beyond her musical talents, this model that has appeared in campaigns for Dillard's and Buckle also founded Innovative Medicine Partners, a company that accelerates the market introduction of new medical devices that deliver unparalleled solutions. Today, Carla splits time between her hometown of Mobile, AL and Nashville, TN as she embarks on her renaissance return to the music arena.
