Gospel Dream Winner Melinda Watts Releases Christmas Single For Charity

Melinda Watts:

12th December 2011 – Stellar and Dove Award-nominated Gospel recording artist and winner of Gospel Music Channel’s Gospel Dream talent search, Melinda Watts, is giving back this Christmas through her music.
After breaking new ground in Europe on her 2011 summer tour and broadening the reach and impact of her ministry, Watts’ Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation, (in partnership with EEW Magazine, the U.S.As leading web publication for Christian women of colour), have released a brand new Christmas single; ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ which will benefit at-risk tween and teen girls, ages 8-18, particularly girls in foster care.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the song will be seeded back into the Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation that also partners with the United Nations (UN) “Girl Up” Foundation ( to equip girls to be the next generation of leaders.
The song that was arranged and produced by Freddy Washington showcases Watts’ soulful, sultry vocals and is being described as ‘Amazing!’, ‘Pure Greatness’ and ‘Beautiful’ and has even been added to the in-store playlist of world renown brand GAP.
Last month, during National Adoption Month, Watts’ charity hosted 75 enthusiastic girls at her Foundation’s G.L.A.M. (Girls Leadership and Mentoring) Camp at the Pinebrook Conference and Retreat Centre in Pennsylvania. Each attendee enjoyed a special time of bonding, sharing, praying, and worshiping in a fun, safe environment. Testimonials poured in from girls who said it was a life-changing weekend. According to Watts, a greater number of girls and their parents desired to participate, but the Dream Girlz Gathering staff were unable to accommodate a larger group — something Watts is hoping to change with donations and support from individuals, ministries, and groups interested in linking up with her cause.
Watts is passionate about helping young women lead successful lives by being a positive influence. Being an English teacher by profession has also helped her establish two other foundations, ‘Project Sunday’ and ‘Heaven’s House for Girls’, both which help support troubled young girls and their families through mentoring and ministering in the community.
“We believe that genuinely investing in young people will have a great effect on the future of our world and prevent the problems that can and will occur tomorrow.”
“There are so many young girls who need love and guidance and I want to be able to help as many as possible,” Watts, who is currently working on her new album to be released in 2012, tells EEW Magazine. Through the sale of the charity single and charitable donations of ‘Dream Girlz Gathering Angels,’ the name designated for supporters, Watts anticipates the day when the Foundation will be able to assist more girls.
“I absolutely love what Melinda Watts is doing through her Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation,” says Dianna Hobbs, President and CEO of EEW Magazine. “She is a shining example of Christ’s love demonstrated through her servant’s heart.”
Melinda Watts is featured in the December 2011 issue of EEW Magazine where details are available about how mission-focused individuals and organizations can help support her Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation.”
