Henry and Rachael are Nigerian worship leaders now based in Derby, England and this is their debut album. It opens with "Hallelujah", a song that showcases Rachael's powerful voice that ranges across the album from muscular to reflective and is more winsome on the quieter, more worshipful songs. "Rain On Me" is supported by some vibrant percussion and guitar highlighting effective lyrics - "Open up the heavens, pour us out your blessing/Lord we need refreshing 'til it overflows" while "Be Glorified" carries a 1970s power riff electric guitar opening. "A Great Love" finds a slightly extended vocal range from Rachael, with power to the fore but over a wider spectrum of pitch. "We Wait On You" is a prayerful song - "Holy Spirit we need you here." The Ita's album is in support of a Christian Medical Center, a charity based in Ekim, Nigeria which supplies free medical treatment to many villages in the heart of Southern Nigeria.
