Overview

Cut from the same cloth as teen powerhouse singers Rachael Lampa and Stacie Orrico, Nikki Leonti delivers a sophomore release that is a solid collection of dance pop and power ballads, enriched with gospel touches. Leonti shows her musical chops as co-writer of half the slickly produced tracks here. Most of these songs focus on the power of God's grace and forgiveness -- something she says she learned firsthand in the past two years after finding herself with a No. 1 single ("Everlasting Place"), pregnant, and unmarried. Now a newlywed and new mom at the age of 19, Leonti's compelling story is apparent throughout this release. The ballad "Letting Go" delivers a powerful moment as she releases her guilt and shame to God -- a Top 40 version of the Sinner's Prayer, if you will. Luscious dance confections like "I Need You" and "Count On Me" have plenty of meat, however -- bouncy in beat and solid in message. Leonti's recent experiences seem to only have matured this teen, who now sings with authority and writes with candor -- something teen pop can always use.
