This is a multi-faceted gem. A diamond ensemble of vocal talent, 24 carat songs and musicians and a live atmosphere of non-embarrassment and pure enjoyment. It's mainly an upbeat collection of modern songs and timeless classics such as the title track, but with a bittersweet edge: "Ten Thousand Years" is a stunning gospel ballad with a sparkling vocalist in Ernie Haase. But then all the singers, and there are 25 in 20 songs, shine just as bright - Larry Ford, Janet Paschal, Lisa Daggs are star jewels in a hugely impressive cluster and it's all crowned by the stunning "Look What God Gave Me" , a country ballad by The Isaacs. The choir is sublime throughout. Priceless.
