My Everything

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Powerhouse vocalist Helen Baylor mixes things up on My Everything. Baylor's rich R&B vocal stylings are in fine form as she embraces a diverse array of material. Opening with the praise & worship number "Lord, You're Holy," Baylor quickly gets down to business on "Harambee," a liberating duet with the always-soulful Bob Carlisle that takes its title from the Swahili word for "freedom" and is distinguished by its funky grooves and jazzy beats. "The Potter's Hand" showcases Baylor's marvelously nuanced vocal control, which conveys the full range of emotion bringing these beseeching lyrics alive. And her easy take on the classic "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)"...

And her easy take on the classic "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" shows she's not afraid to put her stamp on a beloved standard. Baylor has been a treasure of the gospel field for years, and My Everything shows she's not slowing down now.
All Music Guide - Tim A. Smith
Helen Baylor's 2002 release, My Everything, is the popular award-winning artist's first studio album in five years. Often compared to Roberta Flack because of her deep, rich vocal tones, Baylor delivers an album that carries more of a contemporary Christian music feel versus gospel, but true fans of this talented vocalist should enjoy it just the same. Included are heartfelt ballads such as "Outside These Walls" and "It's O.K. to Cry," along with the up-tempo rocker "Take It Up" and the urban-textured track "Harambee," the latter featuring Baylor and Mr. "Butterfly Kisses," Bob Carlisle. Her cover of the James Taylor pop classic "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" has its moments. But the real highlight of this project is Baylor's duet with the Winans' Marvin Winans on the soulful title track, "My Everything." Overall, just hearing Helen Baylor's voice is worth the price of admission.
