Kerron is a firm favourite in her native Jamaica and has been involved in a number of gospel and worship events. This album showcases her powerful voice in collaboration with Clifton "Johnny" Clarke and a selection of other vocalists, including DJ Nicholas, Lt Stitchie and Prophet Michael Cowan. With the exception of "Daddy Oh" all tracks have been written and arranged by Margaret and Clifton Clarke and the background arrangements are both lush and powerful, with some excellent guitar and bass work on "Yeah" courtesy of Oral Thorpe. It's all very good, uplifting stuff, but I have to say that there is nothing on the album that really sets it apart from many, many others. From time to time Ms Ennis sounds as if her voice is under a bit of strain, but she manages to carry it all off in the end. The lyrics are full of emotion and will no doubt touch many hearts - "God Is By Our Side" begins, "Why worry, why be dismayed/As if God has gone away. . ./You're the victor when God is by your side." All in all, a competent album, but I sense there is much more and much better to come.
