DeGarmo & Key have long been pioneers in Christian video with their famed '666' breaking ground as the first Christian concept video on MTV. The title track of this video has to rank very high by anybody's standards, with a clear call to live your life moment by moment for Jesus Christ. This video is not only a collection of DeGarmo & Key but includes the highly successful solo track "Feels Good To Be Forgiven" by Eddie DeGarmo. Filmed in a church full of people bouncing with life, this track has featured both as a soul success and also (probably because of Eddie's boots) a huge country success. Also included is the track "Rock Solid" which is typical American rock filmed live on stage and brought to life by the fact that the crowd is so huge it would make Bruce Springteen's ticket touts jealous. My favourite and most played part is 'The Friends' - DC Talk adding new life and freshness with their open air rendition of their huge hit "Heaven Bound" making it known they they're just not pretty faces but pretty good with their feet too! On the whole this video is a good introduction to Jesus Christ and His Lordship, which seems to be DeGarmo & Key's chief aim. That really comes through on the special bonus interview spliced between each track, which contains both some humorous and some very deep moments. The cover states this is a collection for serious music fans, I believe this video could have a place in most people's collections and I have found it a helpful and useful tool that reaches out to a wide variety of people.
