Belinda is yet another fine quality artist emanating from the Youth With A Mission's Amsterdam base. Most songs are Belinda's originals, with well chosen loans from Richard Mullins and Mark Baldwin. Paul Field and Karen Lafferty both contribute their hefty talents, with fellow YWAM artists such as Dave Durham, Cathy Carter and Celeste Yohai lending a helping hand. As with most YWAM product, this set contains plenty of challenge to commitment, and to worldwide mission. The tone is set by the title track which starts the programme with the vocalist's desire to do whatever it takes to get the job done. This is followed by "O Afrika!", a call to that continent to turn to Jesus. There are also songs of worship and warfare, all given excellent arrangements, mostly in smooth, rich pop style. Warm classy vocalist, whom I would guess has listened and learned a lot from Karen Lafferty. Fine quality product, enthusiastically recommended.
