Rebecca’s new CD single release is “DREAMS COME TRUE”, a magnificent duet with Abraham McDonald, who was the Oprah Winfrey National Vocal Contest winner (judged by David Foster, Diane Warren, and Antonio LA Reid). The song has become an international phenomenon, as fans from around the world are embracing it as their source of love, hope, and inspiration. Just released on Silver Blue/Summit Records and produced by the Grammy Winning Team of Joel Diamond and Rudy Perez, it is consistently the top added AC Radio record of the week. Even before the release of the official video, it had already (organically) surpassed over 7 Million YouTube views and is currently the #1 “Most Popular and Most Requested Wedding Song” in the world. It is truly the people’s hit record! Rebecca is committed to spreading the message, that if we have the courage to pursue them, our dreams really can come true.
