Many will know Donn as a black American worship leader and vocalist who has visited the UK a number of times. He has a distinctive R&B voice which conveys the heights and depths of the human experience. These songs are based on two or three verses from a Psalm, and I presume most were composed by Donn specially for this project: the only exception being "A Shield About Me", which is slightly known in this country. The tracks range from up tempo praise such as "Praise Him" and the reggae groove of "Restore Us.O God" to the deeply felt worship of "Joy Will Come" and "The Spirit". The ability of the Psalms to speak to and for the human soul in its cry to God over the centuries is well known and as I listened lo this CD I felt drawn into the experience and these songs spoke for me too. If you're going through a bad patch and this is your kind of music, then this CD could be a real blessing to you.

I had this CD as well (lost) bought it a gas station in a little small town (lol) anyway, scene him live @ PK in 1996, Soldiers Field, Chgo. Have been lk for quite a while. I dont know how legit this Micah Thomas is (says he is the son) Several years ago I tried that email adr he gave no responses, it looks like u have to go to Integrity or Maranatha Music to purchase if it is still available...GL on that. From the last email it looks like no one had any success. I will one more time w Micah's, and I will let you know.

This is an all time favourite. It is the music and the words that matter and of course Donn has an amazing deep and high voice that takes you into worship and helps pray as you overcome all the hindrances to prayer. if you're stack in worship and prayer, play this CD and you will experience God's presence in the power of His spirit. Maranatha, any chance of reproducing the CD? I was looking for Psalms I,II,III but can't find them! love charles
