An emotionally charged power song for those finding strength to put one foot in front of the other, Saddle Lake First Nation, AB-based Indigenous blues singer/songwriter Donita Large unveils her empowering gospel-esque vocalizations and dynamic lyricism with this, her new single, “Going To Walk That Line” — check out “Going To Walk That Line” on YouTube:
That said, however, gospel does not define this Cree blues-inspired singer-songwriter. If anything, it’s more of the “line” Donita Large has walked in life.
With a singing career that started early on in life, and having so much Métis, country, and gospel music around her, Donita started singing at funerals and weddings early on. Learning how music could be a powerful tool in healing hearts, she decided it was time to branch out.
“I want to share my music, and belt my heart out,” she says. “I am ‘going to walk that line.’”
