This New York-based singer/songwriter has written an album of driving and stylistically diverse worship songs. Apart from a cringeworthy monologue at the start of the title track all the songs are of a high standard. The album starts off with a real kick, "You Are My King" is a dynamic, powerful song with the chorus, "You are my king I will fear you/You are my Lord I will bow down to you". As the album progresses there is a transition to more soulful songs with some R&B influences, like on "Hold Onto You". "Identity Crisis" goes even further with a quasi hip-hop touch, this song is probably the best on the album but it just does not fit with the rest of the songs. For a debut album this is a gem, it pushes all the buttons, is well structured and produced without being packed with effects and auto-tuned vocals. Michelle has a great voice, she is a talented guitarist and pianist and a gifted songwriter.
