A DETOUR by definition is: A Deviation from a direct course or the usual procedure.
Yunēk (pronounced Unique) is more than just a name for the Houston based songstress known for her soft yet soulful tone and catchy hooks over a smooth groove and thumping bass drum beat. The name exemplifies the creative way Jessica Joseph fulfills her purpose and the distinguishable approach to bringing the message of Christianity to the masses.
After a brief hiatus from the mainstream gospel scene, Yunēk resurfaces with a strong message of hope, faith, and change with her sophomore album, DETOUR set for release in 2011. Still buzzing from the success of her debut album EXODUS – Three:Seventeen which included the hit single, “Got Fruit” and the dance infused music video for the single, “Straddle the Fence”, Yunēk is determined and focused to intercede on behalf of believer who may have lost their way with the new single “Will Not Rest”. This heartfelt ballad speaks about the unyielding goal of getting back to that initial place of comfort in God’s presence. “This song is a cry out for restoration and oneness with the Father,” says Yunēk “Racing back to the place where you first felt His love.”
