Veronica is CEO of Eden Hearts UK Performing and Creative Arts Centre. Although the album will be categorised as "gospel", it is closer to lover's rock and raga with more than a nod to several reggae gospel artists. This is evident from tracks "Keep Me From Failing" with its gentle Ja riddims mixed with R&B. The album reflects Veronica's life experiences from childhood through to adulthood, including marriage: "Perfect Marriage" (featuring producer ELM), "Families" featuring children Anisha, Tanya and Reiss, and motherhood ("Thank You Mama"). The only oldie is Stuart Hamblen's "It's No Secret" which finishes the album. This is an enjoyable first release though one that could be overlooked in the crowded gospel music market.
