'What If We' asks the question of Christians to see what Jesus sees in our world today so we can act. In 11 beautifully crafted pop songs Heath challenges Christians to change the world. Following on from his very impressive 2006 offering 'Don't Get Comfortable', Nashville-born Heath continues to show his extraordinary talent as a singer/songwriter. Quite simply there is not an average track on the recording. This album is so accessible words fail this reviewer to do it justice. It is noted that Brandon wrote a song entitled "What If We" and it did not make the final cut. Strange, particularly as the song "London", though beautiful, doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the material here. Leaving that aside, throughout this record Jesus is leaving a message which is more than enough to handle - starting out from the first track ("Give me your eyes so I can see what I keep missing/Give me your love for humanity/Give me your arms for the broken hearted, the ones that are far beyond my reach/Give me your heart for the ones forgotten/Give me your eyes so I can see/What if we...?").

It’s a simple but powerful question. What if we? What if we take a risk? What if we choose to follow our hearts? What if we don’t? What if we sit in the quiet and truly listen to God’s voice? What if we continue to fill our lives with noisy clutter? What if we look at others through the eyes of Jesus?
Songwriter Brandon Heath continues to inspire the possibilities on the follow up to his song 'I’m Not Who I Was' on his debut album 'Don’t Get Comfortable'. Featuring 'Give Me Your Eyes', 'Love Never Fails' and 'Wait & See', Brandon’s latest offering is an honest, heartspoken journey that further solidifies his voice in our community of believers.
