US singer/songwriter Misty Edwards has been leading worship for many years at the International House Of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas and in 'Eternity' she's put together a collection of potent and emotive worship songs. Her songs have a range of styles: there's the almost Evanescence like power rock of "Oh How We Want You To Come", the catchy pop groove of "Let Me Love You More" and the moving piano-based "Simple Devotion" and "I49". Misty pulls all these styles off with aplomb, singing throughout with intensity and authority, and plenty of emotion. Her passion comes through in waves and the band support her superbly. Her lyrics are Bible-based (dipping into seldom-visited books such as Song Of Solomon and Ecclesiastes) and focus on God's love relationship with us and our response, or more particularly her own response. This is personal stuff and is never preachy, but as she shares her heart, the listener is invited to join in. In over eight years at IHOP, Misty has been regularly leading thousands of worshippers and 'Eternity' is inspiring worship which will speak to your heart and draw you to God.
