A compilation of contemporary gospel R&B by crossover artists like Mary Mary, Trin-I-Tee 5:7 and Kirk Franklin, and veterans like Shirley Caesar and CeCe Winans. Wow! A very strong competitor to the 'Wow' series. 28 tracks across two audio CDs, plus a limited edition bonus DVD containing videos by Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin plus mini-documentaries with the likes of Israel explaining the birthing of some of his songs. Anyway, if you want a rocking, upbeat, funky engagement with the Lord, the likes of Vickie Winans, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Byron Cage, Alvin Slaughter, Yolanda Adams and UK's Raymond & Co are on hand to deliver the goods. Quite frankly one can't really argue with the album's subtitle claim that this is "the world's top gospel artists and songs." Show-stealers include Cage's "There Is A Name".
