Her album debut 'Genuine' was good though as much a teen pop item as an R&B set. Her Christmas mini album 'Christmas Wish' suffered from the usual hackneyed concept. But now with 'Say It Again' the awesomely talented 16 year old (actually she was 15 when she cut this) produces a brilliant, R&B set every bit as good as those Destiny's Child albums which sell by the bushel. It is the Destiny's who are the main influence on the catchy, punchy "Tight" and "Hesitation" which open this zippy, effervescent set while "That's What Love's About" is as pretty a soul ballad you'll hear this year as it wistfully explores the need to help our brothers and sisters in need. Fine production from Tedd T, Michael-Anthony Taylor and Mark Heimermann throughout while my favourite, the loopingly funky "Truth", will surely be a radio hit. And before the reactionary elements in the Church weigh in with their "What does a 15 year old know abut the truth of the Gospel?", let me encourage them to read up on this soulful young diva. She clearly has a heart burning for ministry.
