Three of gospel's current finest have teamed up here to bring this DVD of live worship from the famous concert hall in Atlanta, Georgia. Myron Butler, Darwin Hobbs and Darlene McCoy each contribute two performances, giving 32 minutes of everything you would expect from such an event. Not songs you can really sing along to at home or in the car for the most part, there is no denying the hugely contagious aspect to the joy and thanks expressed as the leaders and their back line of musicians and singers dance, clap and sing for the pleasure of an almost equally enthusiastic audience. Although only comprising six songs, there is a satisfying variety to tempo and feel across the recording, with Darlene McCoy's "I Adore You" being especially moving. The great performances of the excellent material are held back a little from the viewer's perspective by a rather basic visual production, but this is not a major flaw as it is the music that shines through here. If you like your praise and worship gospel-style then you are sure to enjoy this offering.
