Beverly Crawford's third album produced by TD Jakes contains a host of black gospel stars, including the choir from the Potter's House. A veritable feast of joyous listening, the album contains a range of gospel styles including traditional gospel, contemporary R&B and Caribbean sounds. You can "have church" with the up-tempo version of "Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus". Beverly's soaring vocals are expertly supported by professional instrumental backing and superb choir arrangements. Much of the album takes the form of personal testimony, good for use in devotional times. For the gospel connoisseur the album contains little in the way of surprise, but a highly polished and enjoyable listen.
