If We Pray

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
When the gospel trio Anointed became a duo, it seemed impossible that the Grammy-nominated, Dove Award-winning group could emerge unscathed. Indeed, the richly blended harmonies of Nee-C Walls and siblings Da'Dra Crawford Greathouse and Steve Crawford put Anointed on the gospel map. Thankfully, the newly transformed Anointed is just as solid in sound and resolute in message. If We Pray, Anointed's first release since Walls's departure, finds the Crawford siblings re-creating the group's trademark lush harmonies and smooth R&B gospel-pop. But there's also a fresh, contemporary sound taking prominence here, one that blends anthemic Top 40 power ballads with the group's ...

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
When the gospel trio Anointed became a duo, it seemed impossible that the Grammy-nominated, Dove Award-winning group could emerge unscathed. Indeed, the richly blended harmonies of Nee-C Walls and siblings Da'Dra Crawford Greathouse and Steve Crawford put Anointed on the gospel map. Thankfully, the newly transformed Anointed is just as solid in sound and resolute in message. If We Pray, Anointed's first release since Walls's departure, finds the Crawford siblings re-creating the group's trademark lush harmonies and smooth R&B gospel-pop. But there's also a fresh, contemporary sound taking prominence here, one that blends anthemic Top 40 power ballads with the group's gospel roots. With prayer as its main theme, If We Pray tells a story of overcoming challenges through faith, family, and friends, and it's a delightful, uplifting tale. Prayers from Steve Crawford's young children, Ashley and Monty, are sprinkled throughout, adding moments of sweetness -- even the most jaded heart will surely smile at hearing young Monty's insistence on asking God to bless the family dog. But it's the moving ballad "Let Me Be Love," sung with true emotion by Da'Dra, that packs the biggest wallop here; this is as surefire a hit as any we've heard this year. Change isn't always easy, but Anointed seems to have emerged from its trials stronger than before.
All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
It's amazing how great modern CCM artists make theology so simple: "We will find hope if we pray." There's also the soulful and bouncy hope that Jesus will return "One Fine Day," whose vocals are so seamless that to the casual genre fan, this might sound like Point of Grace. That spirit of lyrically positive, musically funky, and richly textured vocals by Steve and Da'Dra infuses the duo's fifth album, a thoroughly fresh reminder of God's love, faithfulness, and the power of prayer to sustain in good times and bad. Produced by a stellar list of producers (Mark Hammond, Tommy Sims, Christopher Harris, and Dan Muckala), this collection -- which balances the jumpy, shouting tracks, like "Rejoice," with more introspective meditational ballads, like "You'll Never Thirst" and "I'm Praying for You" -- pushes the envelope creatively, musically, and vocally, bringing out a distinctive sound in a group already known for a one-of-a-kind vocal talent. A little of the Babyface spirit infuses the acoustic guitar-driven "Things I Wish," adding yet more diversity. Depending on one's tolerance level for corny interludes, listeners may love or be very annoyed with the opening track, "Ashley's Prayer," and "Monty's Prayer," innocent prayers by children that add cultural import but distract from the flow of the music ever so slightly.
