Soulful gospel with a splash of pop and a dash of jazz, this is a pretty potent mix for debutante Harris whose album mixes live tracks and atmosphere with more poppy studio work. Garnering comparisons with Yolanda and even a touch of the Kelli Williams, this album chugs along with some sweet soul saxophone and plenty of funky vibes! Tracey's voice glides across groovy tunes and splendid ballads with equal aplomb and then she soars into the stratosphere, she really lets loose - check out the wonderful "Celebrate". Just awesome! If you want to get down to some seriously funky stuff, "Faith" and "Backyard" will do the job. The title track is live and jazz-tinged, setting the mood perfectly. "Dancin' In The Son" is simply the happiest, bubbliest tune I've heard in ages! Totally romantic, "The Wedding Song" is destined to be sung in marriage ceremonies across the globe! This album has just about everything. Alongside Helen Baylor, Tracey Harris has the talent and breadth of material to transcend both the gospel and pop markets and deserves to be embraced, raved about and enjoyed. Great debut! Serious talent!

I waited years to give The Wedding Song to that special someone. She immediately fell in love with this song. On June 3, 2017, I watch my other half walk down the aisle knowing that every word within this song meant the word to her. Thanks for such a lovely song!!!
