Genesis, the young mixed vocal group that provides the background,
offers quality harmonies and in some instances is given center
stage, where they certainly belong.
to the recording studio, Hayes – who hails from Pleasant
Prairie, Wisconsin, just north of the Wisconsin/Illinois border
and near Kenosha – already has two independent releases
under her belt (1985’s Reach Out for Jesus and 2003’s
Build Bridges Instead of Walls). She also provided lead vocals
on two CDs by Rev. C.L. Fairchild and the Voices of Greater Faith.
Hayes established the Lt. Robert Hayes and Aaron Hayes Memorial
Scholarship and Youth Basketball Foundation (www.bobcatandgoat.com)
in memory of her deceased sons.
can only hope that on her next project, Frozene Lott Hayes focuses
entirely on old-time churchy, traditional, bluesy songs, even
recording some gospel chestnuts like “My God is Real”
and “I Surrender All,” which would really demonstrate
her ability to get the house.
