Gina Green is an American Gospel music singer based in Los Angeles, California. She has recorded three albums to date: In His Time, Changes and Tell 'Um. She is known for her vibrant spirit and silky-smooth vocal style, and is often compared stylistically to 1980s pop diva Stephanie Mills. Her music blends elements of contemporary R&B with 1970s soul and modern-day hip hop to create a neo soul gospel flavor.

Album information and production credits[edit]

Her debut album, In His Time, was released on Grapetree Records in 1997[1] under her then-legal name, Gina Brown, and sold over 10,000 copies worldwide. The album was received particularly well in Europe, topping out at number two on the U.K. Gospel charts. 2003's Changes[2] was released independently and sold at a respectable pace. The planned release for Tell 'Um, her third album on Rite-Step Records, fell through in mid-2005 as the label folded before it even got off the ground. The album was later picked up by Nashville-based Trendency Records and released nationally in July 2006.[3] The singles Hiding Place and Testimony received moderate airplay across the U.S. and in Europe. Both the Changes and Tell 'Um albums were produced Isom Green Jr. who has worked with Dr. Dre, Whitney Houston, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg.[4]

Awards and accomplishments[edit]

In 2006, Gina was nominated by the Black Music Academy Association of America in two categories: "Best Gospel Performer - Female" and "Gospel Rising Star".[5] She performed at the event, held at the Cashman Theater, before a full house and won the "Las Vegas Black Music Awards 2006 Best Gospel Performer - Female" award. Later that year, she auditioned for NBC's America's Got 2008 Gina also auditioned for Showtime At The Apollo in LA, California,and was chosen to be on the show.
