Not even the staunchest music skeptic expected A Piece of My Passion, Juanita Bynum's third album, to become the gospel smash it did in 2006. The two-disc set topped Billboard's Top Gospel Albums chart for weeks, and it wasn't long until Bynum scored for herself her first gold album. It was an impressive feat no matter how you looked at it: Bynum's day job isn't music, the album was released independently, and there was no blockbuster marketing plan behind it. Instead, the flocks who bought A Piece of My Passion did so based on Bynum's multimedia appeal: she's a self-proclaimed prophetess, best-selling author, speaker, televangelist...and now bona fide contemporary gospel...

It was an impressive feat no matter how you looked at it: Bynum's day job isn't music, the album was released independently, and there was no blockbuster marketing plan behind it. Instead, the flocks who bought A Piece of My Passion did so based on Bynum's multimedia appeal: she's a self-proclaimed prophetess, best-selling author, speaker, televangelist...and now bona fide contemporary gospel singer. But the thing with Passion is how little of it actually is gospel music. Opener "Break Forth Praise" reminds one of a Sunday morning shout session all right, but from there on out the album takes a dramatic turn. Unexpectedly, Bynum turns into an adult contemporary balladeer, as one song after the next consists of sumptuous, densely orchestrated pop numbers large on sentiment and zeal -- think "Wind Beneath My Wings"-era Bette Midler gone inspirational. Curiously, many of the songs come from unlikely sources, like "Above All Else," a song written by U.K. worship leaderVicky Beeching but attributed mistakenly to CCM-er Rebecca St. James in the liner notes on a similar note, some songs penned by Hillsong Australia songwriters are credited to Hillsong, not to the songwriters themselves. This adds sloppiness to a set that, while heartfelt, it's ultimately too long and overdone to the point of exhaustion. A Piece of My Passion probably makes for a decent post-conference souvenir for those lining up to see Bynum, but in practice, it's far from being the homerun its chart positioning lets on.

    Love and adoration

    Prophetess Juanita Bynum cd is anointed. Every song has a breakthrough. This may sound crazy but I know every song. This is a worship and praise CD and this CD enters you into the presence of the Lord. Get this CD into your home and be blessed. When you feel depressed or sad this is the CD to play. This CD will clear the atmosphere.

    Uplifting

    Juanita Bynum is "Sister" to myself and many others.I love this CD,there are some songs I listen to more than others.Comforting, Soothing, Passionate, are emotions I truly experience by listening.Juanita has expressed her love, by sharing her gift, this time by singing,and letting the "anointing"flow.

    Your life will never be the same after listening to this CD!

    God really used Juanita Bynum. This is not just a cd. This is a spiritual experience that will change your life forever. My personal experience of worship was unbelievable. I encourage all to purchase this cd, even if you are not a christian.

    A MUST HAVE CD

    this is an awesome and anointed double cd it's been a long time coming but well worth it and "BREAKFORTH PRAISE" IS THE WORSHIP SONG FOR 2006, i'm use to her worship ballads but she kills that uptempo worship song.

    A Piece of Your Soul

    Talk about annointing! From the very first song down to the last, you can feel the power of God working through Ms. Bynum. I am so very honored to have a piece of her passion in my collection. I have been raving to family and friends so they too can be blessed the way I have. Thank you so very much for allowing God to use you once again.

    I'm Impressed

    I heard Juanita say that she couldn't sing. So when God told her she would be doing CD's, she laughed. Well I guess God got the last laugh. This is wonderful addition to the praise and worship movement that is spreading rapidly across the world. I love this cd. Keep up the good work.

    God's standard for worship

    This CD is the most complete effort in praise and worship excellence I ever experience. Whether you're middle age or teen age, slow or fast this CD has got you covered. Dr. Bynum continues to operate at a pinnacle of His presence in total praise of our God.
