You Light up My Life: Greatest Inspirational Songs

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
On the heels of last year's Greatest Hymns comes Greatest Inspirational Songs, a repackaging of vintage Debby Boone material, most of it recorded for the now-defunct Lamb & Lion Records. The release is noteworthy because so much of this largely '80s era material is no longer available. Whether these recordings have stood the test of time remains debatable -- production on "The Time Is Now" and "Choose Life" sound quaint, if a bit dated. But Boone fans will be happy to hear songs like the Gary Chapman-penned "Sincerely Yours," a tender ballad as lovely today as when it was released on 1980's With My Song.

And what Debby Boone package would be complete without her 1977 number one hit, "You Light Up My Life"? Certainly not this one -- and a listen to this golden oldie takes us back to when Debby Boone ruled the pop charts for 10 weeks straight. That is sweet inspiration, indeed.
All Music Guide - Charlotte Dillon
This 2001 album You Light up My Life: Greatest Inspirational Songs is an impressive collection of a dozen uplifting contemporary Christian songs that were previously released on other recordings by Debby Boone and have now been gathered together on this one album for your listening pleasure. Boone is an award-winning country and Christian singer who uses her magnificent voice to carry across valuable emotions and meanings in this set of truly inspirational tunes. The song lineup for this album includes fan favorites like "With My Song," "Choose Life," "Name Above All Names," "Sincerely Yours," and one of her biggest hits during her long career, the crossover song "You Light up My Life." These are all the original recordings. This collection is a perfect way to get some of Debby Boone's best contemporary Christian numbers on one album.
