I've lost count of all the gospel divas that these old ears have heard in the last 40 years, and there's an abundance of righteous sistas who want to follow in the footsteps of Mahalia Jackson, Tramaine Hawkins, CeCe Winans and their ilk. Dawne White makes a lot of the right noises, but not enough to be totally convincing. This 13-track CD struggles to make up its mind as to whether it's traditional style gospel or something altogether more urban; on the first couple of tracks, it's straight ahead stuff, although Dawne seems to be straining to deliver on one or two songs that appear to be set in too high a key. Some of the other songs are very inspirational and a tad dull, and on one there's a bizarre intro straight out of a radical hip-hop album that stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb. Taken as a whole, whilst it has its moments, there aren't enough fireworks to go with the rather stereotypically ecstatic sleeve photos. Disappointing.

My song is Miracles! I liked the CD and was looking for more. this CD has potential. I feel that the artist vocals were not brought out. I have heard Dawne sing live and she is right on point. I would like to see a re-release of this CD. If any of you get a chance to hear her live, you will have the annointing upon you and will bring you to tears.

I have heard all of this CD and Find the Title Track Miracles , a song that I can hit the repeat button on.
Many of us have a voice to lift in praise and don't use it in the right ways, Dawne continue to use your's to spread the word, can't wait to hear what will be coming from you in the future .
