A 2005 album that Zoe Records have now released in the UK. The worship here was recorded live at the Wilbur Cross-Auditorium in New Haven. The group of young, dynamic and undoubtedly passionate gospel singers brought together by James Hairston come out of the Turner's Faith Temple Church Of God In Christ in Bridgeport and were subsequently nominated for a Stellar award, Soul Train award and a Gospel Music Workshop Of America Excellence award. This will be a real treat to lovers of good, high class, high energy gospel music and reminds a little bit of the worship style of Kirk Franklin (market leader in the so-called urban contemporary gospel field). As well as the vibe of the music and the lyrics, you'll find the songs to be truly stirring and refreshing, making it rather hard to remain sitting still on your chair. "Oh Holy Lamb" is a majestic and powerful song that really stands out, along with "He's Worthy", pulsating with a burning desire to give all worship to the King Of Kings. Quite a few very gifted soloists are on board too. 'Live: The Praise. The Worship' is more than just an invitation to listen, it's an invitation to worship.
