Danielia Cotton Shares Cover Of “Roll On Mississippi”

In celebration of Black History Month, singer/songwriter Danielia Cotton honors the music of the late Charley Pride with her cover of his 1981 classic “Roll on Mississippi.” As one of only three African-American members of the Grand Ole Opry, Charley Pride was a trailblazer for Black country artists. Danielia’s vocals on this track encapsulate the spirit of serene summers and breezy walks along the river; channeling Charley’s energy perfectly.

Danielia recently released “A Different War,” a track that sees her wading through the emotions of experiencing blatant racism as a young child in a small, mostly-white New Jersey town. Paired with a gorgeously shot music video, the accompanying visuals tell the story of the struggle for racial justice through Danielia’s eyes. With a thunderous backing gospel choir reminiscent of Pastor T.L Barrett’s soaring ballad “Like a Ship,” Danielia’s vocal delivery has clear parallels to artists like Tina Turner and Etta James as she reaches to the moon and back.

Next month, Danielia will release her newest album Good Day, out March 18th. Brimming with a classic motown edge and distinctly gritty rock and roll, Good Day sees Danielia hhmasterfully explore and traverse multiple genres. 

Good Day is Danielia’s most varied and energetic album to date. Pre-save Good Day HERE.
