This album has 14 tracks of pure joy. From the first note of "Radio Is Playing It" to the last chord on "Joy", Chevell shows she has immense talent as a singer. You can feel that she is singing from her heart, and not just because she has a good voice. Chevell Franklin is world-renowned for her songs with Shabba Ranks and Beenie Man; this is before she became a Christian three years ago. This is her debut gospel album - and what a debut! One of my favourite tracks is "Another Saturday Night" which I've been playing on my Reggae Time programme on Cross Rhythms radio since March. It's still my number one song! I can't find any fault with this album - I love it!

We went to St. Catherine Primary School together. I am hoping to see you in concert very soon. When will you be putting out another album. I love number 13 on your last album. Loving the Lord is a beautiful thing.
