Kelley and Nicole are part of the worship team at the famed Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship and this set was produced and arranged by Robert Critchley who also co-wrote many of the songs and also contributes two instrumental tracks. Dedicated to "bring hope to the hopeless, love to the unloved, dreams to the dreamless and healing to the broken hearted", this is gentle worship music that will inspire and move. 'You Are Beautiful' showcases the strengths of Kelley and Nicole as soloists as well as their ability to blend and compliment one another. You have a job to tell them apart on the CD. The opening track "You Are My Shepherd" is almost upbeat, while the other nine tracks are much slower - and I mean slooow. It's the sort of music to just chill out and let it wash over you, probably the material they use during quiet times of worship in Toronto. It would be ideal for any church wanting music to play during times of quiet worship or ministry. Just don't play this while driving - depending on your mood you'll either want to fall asleep or close your eyes and put your hands out the sun roof!
