An album with links in both Danny's home of New Jersey and London. From the first viewing of the sleeve credits it is clear where this man's heart lies - in giving praises to a holy God. Danny includes Andrae Crouch as one of his musical influences and this is evident throughout this inspirational collection of quality gospel music. All songs are self-penned from this extraordinary talent. Kicking off with "Holy Spirit" you are immediately captivated and swept into the river of love and grace which is so clearly communicated. A wonderful cross section of music from the up tempo "We Need A Blessing" through the very beautiful and moody "Finally" with soulful sax and powerful message to the reggae "Christian" which goes a bit like this: "Christian, Jesus is coming/You better listen to what I'm telling you/Our Lord and King is coming soon, BE READY CHRISTIANS."
