If it were up to me, this would win the Grammy for Album of the Year!!!
There are some CDs that simply grab you by the heart and won't let go. This is one of them. I'd always known of the inimitable Blind Boys of Alabama. They are the premier gospel singers who have been around for a very long time. My grandparents and parents adore them. There comes a time when you will finally sample your parents' music. I thought I'd try the Blind Boys of Alabama. As for Ben Harper? I had no idea who he was. I'm simply being honest. A friend told me he appeared in the documentary, Standing in the Shadows of Motown. But I'd never bought a Ben Harper CD. That has been remedied. I've purchased several now because I'm definitely a fan after hearing his voice soar on Where Could I Go?, Take my Hand, Wicked Man, Picture of Jesus, and every other track on this CD. I listen to a lot of music and this CD simply moved me. It raises your spirits and before you know it, you're out of your seat and dancing with pure joy. This isn't strictly gospel music, even though it touches your heart like good gospel music should. This is rock, soul, AND gospel all woven into one glorious sound. It's heavenly music that will stand the test of time. When the Grammys roll around next year, I expect this CD to not only get a nod, but to win. That's my testimony. ;o)Was this review helpful?
