Gospel singer Tasha Cobbs-Leonard appeared on Good Morning America to perform her latest single: “I’m Getting Ready” and declare over 2018 in the same week that new year resolutions are still fresh: “I’m getting ready to see something I’ve never seen!” Cobbs-Leonard was the guest of GMA anchor Robin Roberts who discovered her music by way of her stylist. Before her performance, the singer also spoke with Roberts about teaming up with Nicki Minaj for the rap/worship collaboration. The award winning singer made headlines last year with her marriage to her producer and the announcement of the collaboration with Minaj on her latest album “Heart. Passion. Pursuit.” The news was shocking, but the album doesn’t disappoint, making this album one of her biggest to date.
