Congratulations are in order for Christian recording artist Riley Clemmons.
The Godsend singer has been named one of People Magazine’s “Emerging Artists of the Summer.”
The publication credits Riley’s ability to combine her Christian upbringing with her love for pop music for making the list.
The 21-year old singer takes inspiration from her upbringing in church music and combines it with her love for pop to create vulnerable anthems like her debut single “Broken Prayers.”
For new listeners, Clemmons shares that her song “Headspace” from her latest album Godsend is a great introduction into who she is as a growing artist.
“It’s a great song to start on,” Clemmons tells PEOPLE. “It sets the melodic and lyrical tone of the new sense of confidence I found when writing this record and this song in particular. If you’ve ever found yourself giving the space in your head to people and things that are no longer good for you, this song is for you.”
Congratulations Riley, hope to see you at the Dove Awards!
