Robert is today a worship leader in an Orlando church. But when he was 13 he released his debut album working with top producers such as Robert White Johnson, who was behind artists like Celine Dion. Five years later Robert is back, this time with producer Matt Bronleewe (Jars Of Clay, Chris Tomlin) and CCM hitmaker Jason Ingram both contributing to the songwriting. The result is an album of two halves. There are great radio-friendly songs here, the title track for example delivers a punchy, driving beat and a clear message of commitment, "Who R U" with its challenge of where our hearts are and the worshipful "Be Lifted Up" are also excellent. However, from track seven, "Silent Cry", the album starts to drift becoming well produced background music, unless you concentrate hard. So despite all the care and money spent on this project it doesn't quite make it as a must have.

Product Description

Few artists have the ability to communicate truth and inspire listeners the way Robert Pierre does in his new album Iím All In. After several years of relentless touring following his last critically-acclaimed album, Robert returned to the studio with songs of his own. Robert co-wrote nearly every song on Iím All In, a first for the eighteen year old who is just now finishing high school.

Talk to anyone who has experienced Robert Pierre live and they will tell you his gifts go far beyond those of a talented singer and musician. Robertís ability to turn listerners into active participants is a rare gift for this artist who is mature beyond his years. Some of this is probably due to Robertís weekly residency as worship director at Harvest Bible Church, Orlando - the church his family helped launch just a few years ago, which now welcomes upwards of 1000 worshippers every week.

With a full schedule of US summer festival performances ahead prior to beginning his first year in college, this year will be Robertís busiest ever. But Iím All In is a testament to this unique artistís passion to follow his calling and serve God with all he has.
