The Voice Finalist Wendy Moten Tops the Charts on Collaborative Project

(Black PR Wire) NASHVILLE —'Tis the season to be jolly! That's the sentiment of everyone at AfterTouch Music as they close out the year on a string of high notes. The hot release, Roger Ryan & Friends: A Time for Hope debuts just in time for holidays and features The Voice finalist and Memphis native, Wendy Moten!

A celebrated frontrunner on Season 21 of the popular music show, Moten was a member of Blake Shelton's team and remained a fan favorite all the way to the finale! Wendy’s rendition of “Away in the Manger” featured on the album A Time for Hope, is trending at #1 on music platforms, credited in part, to her huge following and popularity on The Voice.

The album offers a wonderful collection of artists and songs crossing various genres including jazz, pop, R&B, Neo-classical, and gospel. There’s something for everyone! Music lovers are sure to fall in love with Christmas all over again after the first listen! This holiday season is truly a time for hope and this resounding message has never been so clearly and beautifully expressed as presented in this inspiring Christmas collection

Each artist featured on Roger Ryan & Friends: A Time for Hope brings an unbridled style and skill to the project. Joey Kibble of the Grammy Award-Winning group Take 6, opera star Angela Brown, Stellar Award-Wining Best New Artist Terrell Hunt, gospel powerhouse Benita Washington, balladeer Maurice Griffin and The Voice fan favorite Wendy Moten, along with other artists make this album a work of art!

An award-winning music producer, seasoned artist, and educator, Roger Ryan celebrated Moten's star-studded finale just before heading off to lead a new production project for the next few months at the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) in Barbados. Ryan has quite the list of impressive titles himself including multi-Grammy Juno and Dove nominated producer, artist, vocalist, music director, CEO, and Masterclass Instructor. His accomplishments and talents garnered him a teaching role at the prestigious Berklee Abu Dhabi! Now he serves as the lead music producer and vocal coach for select music artists enrolled in the NCF music program.

Ryan is responsible for stimulating and facilitating music development for rising artists while in Barbados. He launched the NCF partnership on the same day as the Grand Cultural Celebration and Declaration of Republic and the installation of the President, Her Excellency Dame Sandra Mason as Barbados was officially declared a Republic.
