Originally from Australia 16 year old Rebecca is a new ForeFront signing and judging from the quality of this finely crafted, hook-laden set it won't be long before the lass is up there with the Susan Ashtons and the Twila Parises in America's radio Top Ten. Plenty of kick in the production with "Everything I Do" with its tasty guitar riffs and its laid back verses leading into a socking chorus is a particular standout. Another cut, the funkiest thing on the album "We Don't Need It" has already got some Christian radio play on this side of the pond. If you're looking for classy, pop gospel look no further.

I'll never forget hearing ccm airwaves playing the well ccm flavored song "Here I Am"; immediately luved it!
Wow! I couldn't believe this new addition to the ccm field was only 16 years of age! (of course the inside cd photos clarify her young age). The song definitely has hit written upon it!! Rebecca also had a hand in writing this top tune; nice job Rebecca! Well known songwriters and singers of ccm Eddie DeGarmo and Bob Farrell, supply newcomer Rebecca with another pop ccm gem called "Side by Side"; great song!!
"True Love" is a song worth mentioning; very well recorded; so pop sounding! Some well known bgv's are joined with Rebecca on her debut:Chris Eaton, Kim Fleming (another who has been associated with top ccm artist Amy Grant); Bob Carlisle (long time ccm vet): to name some. "I Thank YOU, LORD" is another song worth complimenting; great song! I have many of Rebecca's cds. GOD Bless! -Don
