This album is part of Integrity Music's best-selling 'Shout Praises Kids' series and is a release from New Life Worship Church based in Colorado Springs featuring Jared Anderson and other youth leaders along with many of their energetic and talented kids. Anderson, who wrote over half the songs on this project, is well respected as a singer/songwriter in his own right but don't think he has somehow gone down a level by featuring on this release. On the contrary, his involvement only serves to enhance the experience and with excellent production from Michael Rossback a set of superb quality is delivered. Songs of faith, praise and fun permeate the tracks such as the lively opener "Counting On God" with an irrepressible melody and the crazy "Dance Dance Shake It Up/It Was For Freedom". One of the strongest songs is undoubtedly "Impossible Possible" and "Magnified" which could be used in an all age worship setting. Indeed a number of the songs have been reworked for the kids such as the popular "Strong God" and 'We Belong' but don't lose any of their impact. An album of good melodies, imaginatively produced, which teach solid truth.
