Shoot for the Stars

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Bigger-than-life Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard added "recording artist" to his résumé with the release of Shoot for the Stars, an 11-track collection of classic "sports jams" that finds the Olympic gold medalist/NBA All-Star backed by a gang of enthusiastic kids and some of the industry's finest session players. To be fair, Howard is no Shaquille O'Neal, as he actually has a decent set of pipes, and the performances, although occasionally goofy -- the basketball-themed reworkings of "U Can't Touch This Howard Time" and "Whoomp Hoop There It Is" are hardly subtle -- are immaculate, even if they're just aping the original recordings.

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Bigger-than-life Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard added "recording artist" to his résumé with the release of Shoot for the Stars, an 11-track collection of classic "sports jams" that finds the Olympic gold medalist/NBA All-Star backed by a gang of enthusiastic kids and some of the industry's finest session players. To be fair, Howard is no Shaquille O'Neal, as he actually has a decent set of pipes, and the performances, although occasionally goofy -- the basketball-themed reworkings of "U Can't Touch This Howard Time" and "Whoomp Hoop There It Is" are hardly subtle -- are immaculate, even if they're just aping the original recordings. Shoot for the Stars' title track, the lone original, is a sentimental midtempo ode to being a team player, good sportsmanship, and positive thinking, and in a world where highlight reels are inundated with horrific injuries, stupid dances, and locker-room controversy, it's hard not to start bobbing your head in time to its simple refrain of "Aim high with your heart."
