Atlanta, GA, June 18, 2013 --( Multi-Award Winning artist, Conya Doss has been providing concert goers, with musical delights, since last year's release of A Pocketful of Purpose. "DC always shows me love and my fans brought the level of energy that I have grown used to when in the nation's capital." Conya's loyal fans and music lovers, everywhere, are still basking in the melodic rays from her hit leading single, "Don't Change" off of her latest release. Her last album, A Pocketful of Purpose, takes listeners on a sojourn to lands where love reigns and individualism is celebrated and her performances. This past weekend delivered just that.

Packed with the momentum of Conya's projects, over the last year, these shows were a pure delight for long-time fans. In between shows, Conya Doss has kept herself busy by joining forces with BET's Rap-IT-UP, Award-winning Change MY Story, and the global effort, Keep the Promise, to help raise awareness regarding HIV and AIDS. A few weeks ago, Conya Doss joined Grammy Award winning artist, Brandy, Civil rights leader, Julian Bond, and over 1,100 marchers to remind local and national leaders that the war on AIDS has not been won.

The artist that is Conya Doss seamlessly blends with the philanthropist as she has also raised awareness for the Global Water Crisis, human trafficking, childhood obesity and the need for teen mentors.
