All Music Guide - David Jeffries
After 18 years on the Verity Music Group label, Life & Favor finds John P. Kee moving to his own label, Kee Music Group. Still, little else has changed as "Wake Up" combines punchy Earth, Wind & Fire-styled R&B with choir gospel and worship. Then there is "Life & Favor" (aka "You Don't Know My Story"), which sounds like vintage Kee as the choir swells during the choruses, while the verses are given to personal stories from James Fortune, Isaac Carree, and Lejuene Thompson.
