Do you ever wonder why the big bucks often go to the people with little talent, leaving paltry pennies for those more deserving? I do, and here's a classic example! Londoner Ernie Toppin has an impressive vocal talent and songwriting ability. He's up there with Seal or BeBE Winans; clear, precise, full on, emotional, powerful, soulful and spiritual. The music programming behind the voice is also well done. It has that slightly rough edges unsigned band feel, but is interesting, groovy and varied throughout the 12 track album. Jungle, reggae, hip-hop, acid jazz and R&B styles are all used effectively. The lyrics are well written and are totally in-yer-face Gospel, while the melodies are catchy and memorable. Inspiring and challenging. With an extra hundred-thousand pounds or so for the recording budget, this could possibly become the best album in the world...ever!

Thank you Pastor for your music and labouring for the King of kings. is through your coming to the Meadowlands church, 1st it was with Pastor S. Dillard and you came again when it was Pastor David Drum, that time I realy got established in the church. I remember I was in college then and you came to do a revival for us and at college that time was fun day. I had to choose between outreach with the church at the Vista University or go and have some fun friends at college. but God spoke to me and I choose outreach. And since then I'm still in church, actualy we just got launched out of the Meadowlands church into the nation of Lesotho this past September 2009. When we have fellowship with Pastor D. Kennedy I even I ask about you. I realy thank God for missionaries who came to impact lives in South Africa with the gospel. God bless you Pastor and your wife you are doing a tremendeous work. Please if you come to Bloemfontein for Pastor Kennedy, please come do a revival for us in Maseru,Lesotho, we are just 1 hour away.
Have a great year, please pray for us as we pray for you. Prince and Tumi Matladi

I have 5 children 4 sons and one daughter. 12 grandchildren. I am a blessed man. Your song Jesus Christ really Loves you is the favorite of all my grandchildren they know all the words. 1st thing they say when they get in my car is put on our favorite song. They sing pointing to each other "Jesus Christ really really Loves you." I know he Loves me.
