True to the album's title, Isabella Ogo-Uzodike gives her all to this collection - committed, sincere, confident and soulful singing. The voice of the Nigeria-born, London-based singer is quite distinctive while the music and backing vocals enhance the album effectively - subtle, never overwhelming the message. The opening track "You Are Awesome" is a worshipful statement of intent, while "All That I Am" comes across as a dedication of the album to the Lord. In a business that must feature temptations of the ego, her song "More Of You" strikes an important note - "more of you, less of me". "Your Name" is a prayerful meditation while "It's You That I Adore' follows in a similar vein, complemented perfectly by simple piano. On "Holy Are You Lord" Isabella is joined for some spoken worship by guest Remi Odumensi. The melodic "Sweet Holy Spirit" is probably the nearest to a middle-of-the-road song which should have a wide appeal. The final track "You're So Beautiful" is an appealing worship song and leaves a warm glow.
