Robert Moe has music in his blood. Growing up in a family of gospel singers, Moe has been singing in church since he was six. From the age of 15 he was a backing singer with the likes of Howard Smith and Soul Liberation and has since worked with a list of gospel artists that sounds like a Who's Who of the genre - including Andrae Crouch, The Clarke Sisters and Hezekiah Walker. This set of 13 songs is a great showcase for Robert's voice, which has been compared to that of Luther Vandross. And it is a great voice! In these self-penned songs Moe expresses his own experience that without struggle there is no victory. The opening song "Forever" speaks of the faithfulness of God and the desire to respond with commitment and there are expressions of great praise ("So Glad") and real devotion ("I Love You Lord"). The tracks "Redeemed" and "Calling You" even manage to stand out above the rest and, with the exception of a rather lifeless rap on "Be Alright", this is a powerful and inspirational album. There must surely be even greater things in store for Mr Moe.
