Tawanna Shaunte' is a phenomenal singer-songwriter who hails from central Mississippi. Her musical inspiration comes from her deep rural Mississippi roots where her huge family of aunts, uncles, and cousins would belt out traditional gospel hymns and Delta blues at a moment’s notice and before long everyone would be singing. Her late father, Tommy J. Harper, was a guitar player and her mother Grace, a gospel singer and pianist. Her mother's strong determination and influence helped to implant the soulfulness and gospel undertones in Tawanna's voice.
