There's something very interesting about a worship album with a D M boot on the cover, especially when the boot is on the excellent Maggi Dawn. Over the past couple of years, CCM dudes have been turning out some excellent worship albums, whilst worship leaders (notably Noel Richards) have worked hard at making worship a bit more beefy, but all along this lady has been uniquely somewhere in between, writing inspired contemporary praise and worship. The album is stripped back to a musical minimum (with Maggie and Andy Cross providing all the instrumentation) so Maggi's beautiful voice is given all the room it needs to deliver the powerful lyrics. Guest vocalists Dave Perry and Richard Nicholson (aka Billy Penn's Brother) add to the atmosphere and passion of this brilliant disc. Standout track must be "I Will Wait"...Ooooh! It's so good! It's time this sister was shifting albums by the lorry-load 'cause once again her music, her vocals, her lyrics, her attention to doctrine, her talent and her album cover prove that Maggi Dawn can fill the shoes of any of the guys doing worship.

specially love MARY´S SONG. I know you, Maggy, from London. I have been working in the dynamis team in bedingfields household, do you remember.
I´m married since 19 years to Frank Heyderhoff.
My girlname is Gabi Sefzick. My husband would like to use one song in a christian musical. "When I think about the way that I´ve been made" fits perfect in his musical "The making of a princess", that will be ready in summer 2008. If you´ve time it would be great if you could sing it life for the musical. Greetings from Gabi.
P.S.: Next time when I visit my brother in London I would like to meet you.

How do I get hold of any music by Maggi Dawn. I hear it from time to time on Good Morning Sunday on the radio but cannot find any way to purchase.
