From the intro there is a warm feel of expectation from Patrice Morris. Trust Him', her debut solo album, is without doubt an album worthy of a good listen. (It's always great to hear a live band.] Maybe it's her warm smile on the cover or her warmth of delivery, but either way from the opening track "Oh How I Love Jesus" penned by "The Maestro", the late Thomas Whitfield, you know there's something good in store. You'd even be forgiven for thinking that the famous Clark Sisters had lent their vocals to this project, as Patrice begins a journey of encouragement and praise, A true soprano who has performed with the likes of Daryl Coley, Ben Tankard and Lashun Pace, Patrice penned or co-penned more than half the tracks on the album. Joined by new jack gospel man Kenny Smith on the R&B-tinged "Pray", she successfully juggles contemporary tracks such as "Appropriate Praise" and "Celebrate" with the more ballad numbers of "The Perfect One" and "Trust Me". The message is always clear and ends appropriately with the timeless "Jesus Loves Me".
