As with any new album there's always that element of uncertainty as of what to expect but with an already extensive CV including opening for mainstream acts Destiny's Child and Nick Carter, this Houston, Texas native isn't prepared to be judged by the cover. Produced by Demetrion "D" the disc opens with a spoken introduction of "this new artist" and instantly asks "can you feel the power?" Certainly the high quality of production is immediately apparent and the wait for the "power" behind the music doesn't last long! The overall cry is for God's people to be ignited into action to praise and serve, evident on "That Man", "Hold On" and the title track. Plenty of effect experimentation, especially on vocals, nestles handsomely with the arrangements all assuring the message is not hindered by the supporting music varying from trad gospel to urban and back again. 'Trina does enjoy the quieter moments too, shown during the reflective "Worship You" and through the thought-provoking "Why", calling the faithless heart to repentance.
