    This CD is like a delicious 10 course meal that got better and better with each course. Each selection left me anticipating the next.

    This is one of the best CD's I've purchased in a long time. Her voice is incredible and so diverse. One of things I like about this CD is that its so eclectic. Its not just gospelly. There are tunes that minister, some that make you think and some that are just fun. So many different styles. And the lyrics--each song is a ministry in itself with its own special message. Can't wait to see what's next. Indeed, I desire more.
