LAKELAND, Fla. — The Lakeland woman who appeared on the cover of People magazine earlier this year is releasing a new album.

Ra’Chel Saintfort was featured in People Magazine due to her ability to lose more than 100 pounds. She said her weight and image has kept her from getting a major label record deal. 

Her new album, “I’m Here,” features one song, “The Harvest,” which talks about this journey.

This is the R&B singer’s fourth album. She still has hopes of getting picked up by a major label.

“I’m truly excited. Especially with what I’ve been through with the weight loss. I’m just so excited that I fought through it all and I’m here to present my new body of work,” said Ra’Chel Saintfort 

The album will be released online on December 4.
