First up I'm afraid I can't tell you too much about Sylvia and Tru Worship as this CD came with no notes and neither Sylvia nor Tru Worship have got round to a website yet (or if they have it isn't easy to find!) What I can tell you is that this is a live recording made at South Birmingham College (the Midlands, not Alabama) and that Sylvia is very much your typical diva-esque gospel singer in the style of Shirley Caesar and others too numerous to mention (the fact that the sleevenotes tell you who her hair stylist is is interesting). Occasionally the lead is taken by members of Tru Worship but it's really Sylvia's gutsy contralto which holds sway. The word that I think best sums up this recording is "okay". Sylvia's voice is great but as for the songs they're very average. Better material is clearly needed.
