The angelic voice of Tanya Dallas-Lewis serves as the perfect example of what happens when we allow our gifts to make room for us. With one listen, you’ll soon discover that Tanya was destined to sing. Her debut release entitled “Miracles” has opened many doors on her behalf and is taking the gospel industry by storm.
In August of 2011, Tanya received two Stellar nominations for the 2012 27th Stellar Awards. She was also nominated for a 2012 Dove Awards and featured on the Gospel Music Channel. She was also a nominee for the 2011 South Florida Gospel Music Awards, three nominations for the 2011 Rhythm of Gospel Awards, 2011 Washington Area Music Award (Wammies), the 2010 Ensound Awards and is a 2010 YGEA Awards winner for ”Best Female Performer of the Year.’ Tanya was the first performer for the Gospel Heritage Month Celebration in 2010 to where she made history in setting a platform for gospel artist.
Tanya was featured on BET Dr. Bobby Jones Gospel. She is also one of twenty women selected from two hundred influential D.C. moms to ‘walk the runway’ for charity at the Runway Moms For A Cause which was hosted by FOX 5’s Emmy Award winning anchor, Maureen Umeh. ”Something About a Miracle,” the music video is airing nationally, in heavy rotation on BET, and Centric, receiving over 70,000 views virally on Reverbnation. Tanya has shared the stage with many gospel greats. From singing the National Anthem for Joel Osteen, Jesse Jackson and the Mayor of D.C., to sharing the stage with artists like Donnie McClurkin, Vickie Winans, Mary Mary, Kenny Lattimore, Canton Jones, Richard Smallwood, Dr. Bobby Jones, Fred Hammond, Isaiah D. Thomas, PJ Morgan, Kirk Franklin, Lemmie Battles, Dorothy Norwood and many more.
In gleaning from Tanya’s ministry, one will soon discover, she does not just sing the Gospel but she lives it as she champions the message of Jesus Christ and His “keeping power” everywhere she goes. As the daughter of a preacher, obeying God was instilled in her at an early age. She did not give in to peer pressure, what made her cool, or what was the latest trend. Humble, but not perfect, Tanya lives by this passage of scripture “obedience is better than sacrifice” and God is honoring her obedience. Her desire is to live a life that makes God famous. By honoring Him, she rests in the assurance that God will get the glory out of everything she does and the work of her hands.
