This moment has been a long time coming for Dawn Richard. Singer/songwriter, former member of Danity Kane (heck I say once DK always DK..lol), former member of Diddy Dirty Money, etc..etc…I say that because this woman has not stopped since the day we were first introduced to her for MTV’s Making the Band. Her grind has been relentless, and not without struggle, yet by faith she has stood her ground, trusted God to do what He said He would concerning her…and now he she is, on the cusp of her first full length debut album: GoldenHeart. I have been pulling for Dawn since day one..so I’m very excited for this album to drop. I’m not sure there is even a category for this music…that’s what makes it dope to me. So take a listen to the snippets, and then click the link to pre-order the album.

Dawn Richard…smh! I simply love this singer. Dawn just continues to bring me along on this music journey she’s embarking on as a solo artist. I will never say the sky is the limit for her, but rather her faith is the limit! If she can believe it & receive it, this woman will be standing before podiums accepting numerous awards in the very near future. Her new joint, On A String, serves as another new single from her upcoming album: Golden Hearts, which is slated to be release early 2013.
Dawn Richard just dropped what is presumably her first official single, from her upcoming debut solo album, GoldenHearts, which is slated for a 10/6 release. The song is called, Pretty Wicked Things, and was written by the singer, and produced by Druski. The level of music Dawn has dropped since her release from Bad Boy has been nothing short of incredible. I’m loving her sound, and it’s going to be very hard to categorize her music. She’s too eclectic. I love It.
Fiyahhhh!! Whew. Okay let me just say that there are some people that you just want to see make it. Dawn Richard is one of those people. From Making The Band, to solo greatness, Dawn Richard is the epitome of not giving up. Not just on her dream, but herself! The always grinding, never sleeping, too much music to make and money to get, singer/songwriter, has taken the “independent” label by storm, and guess whose raking in the dividends…that’s right. Tell me God not good?
With her brand new EP, Armor On, still sitting in Itunes top 15, the former Danity Kane member releases her 2nd video of the EP, for the song Automatic, and she did her thang. Dawn gives you her unique vocals, along with a writing style that will take her places she never envisioned, and a melody, that hooks any ear thats listening.
CelebrityMinistry would like to be one of the first to congratulate Dawn Richard, for being true to herself, the gift God gave her, and the to the gift Giver.

Finally the EP has dropped! Dawn Richard has taken another huge leap to superstardom by releasing, Amor On! The 10 song EP, is filled with nothing but what I call, money makers. I mean I can take anyone of the songs on this EP and here it on the radio.
I have been rooting for Dawn since day one, and finally it’s her season. If I had to choose my favorite song on here, it would probably be (although hard to choose just one) would be, Scripture. She simply let’s her pen flow on this track, and it touches every inch of me. Check it out, and her brand new video for her latest single, Bombs! After watching tell me this girl didn’t just make a mark on this game! Beautiful, talented, and independent!
“…just feed me beats and watch me eat up all ya’ll”-Bombs by Dawn Richard..smh fiyah!
Cop AMOR ON, right now on Itunes!
Dawn Richard protects herself from the evils of the music business on “Black Lipstick,” her edgy new record.
“‘Black Lipstick’ is the story of how I found out I needed armor,” explains the former Dirty Money diva, who recently parted ways with Bad Boy. “It’s the trap. The music industry is described as a mysterious woman. The seduction and the betrayal of her. I saw in color but as soon as my eyes set on her, all that was seen was black and white. That is when I knew I needed to put my armor on.”
The Druski-produced track is one of seven that will appear on Dawn’s digital EP Armor On, available March 27.
Singer/songwriter, Kalenna, from Dirty Money, has just released her hot new mixtape, Chamber of Diaries. The 16 track mixtape is hosted by DJ Klash, and has some of the hottest producers in the game, from Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins to She’kspere.
