“I have been singing since I was five years old and in full time ministry with my family for more than two decades. Yet this is my first encounter as a solo artist. Why did I wait so long? The timing never seemed right until now. God has a perfect timetable…” – Kim Hopper. 11 country-tinged soft pop songs (two of which are written by Cindy Morgan) filled with hope and encouragement. Kim has an obvious desire to minister to people and this comes across in a genuine sincerity and love. The opening song, “The Road Home”, is a catchy, up tempo track with plenty of good ‘ole country violin! My two favourites are “While I Wait”, which starts to reveal Kim’s “country diva” voice, and “I Love The Lord”, an infectious little sing along song. However, I felt it was all too controlled and “nice” and wish that Kim would just let rip with her voice now and then and not play it so “safe”. This all combines to leave the listener with a pleasant but somewhat bland musical experience.
