'You Alone' is the choir's third recording and continues the great gospel tradition of praise and teaching presented through a fiery African American choir. The vocal arrangements here, along with the musical accompaniments are strong throughout and the choir's lead vocals compliment them without being overpowering or being lost in the mix. However there are not a lot of tracks here that stand out and grab the attention. By far the standout song is an extended version of the title track, which begins with a passionate lead vocal that is given space to build the song from a quiet, prayerful ballad to a soaring, joyful gospel romp. A shorter version is also included as a reprise. If you are new to mass choir gospel music, 'You Alone' is a reasonable enough album but in truth there are better ones out there.

Product Description
You Alone is the third release from Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir, designed for the total worship experience.

While the radio single and title track You Alone will resonate very well with praise & worship music fans, producer and writer Troy Sneed has also penned a smash groove tempo track entitled Tell The Master Yes for choir lovers.

Lastly, for those who cherish that traditional Sunday morning foot-stomping church sound, Punch Baldwin put her signature touch on Make A Way, which rounds out the entire album as a full worship service, complete with the benediction!
