Pros:Kim really knows how to minister to the people through her music.

Cons:This project is good, but it is not one of Kim's best performances.

The Bottom Line: I recommend this CD. It has it's quirks, but it is definitely an anointed project.


I could not wait for this CD to come out! I ran to the store and bought both the CD and the video. I am a huge fan of Kim Burrell since her first CD. I had heard parts of this CD before it came out, so I knew that Kim was not going to fail me!

Well, I'll start out with the basics. Kim really knows how to minister to the people whether she's performing live or if she's recording in a studio. You always feel the need to "get it right" after listening to her music. She has a musical style that is just in a league of it's own! One cannot mistake her deep and throaty vocals and her vocal runs that leave you breathless!

Her background singers on this project are first-rate. I was kind of disappointed this time around because I have to be honest in saying that this recording sounded more like a rehearsal than an actual live performance. I am a gospel singer myself, so I tend to pick up on the little things that most people don't even notice. On this particular recording, it sounded as if the background vocalists were just given the music to learn the same day the recording took place! There were a lot of things that could have been tightened up, but overall they sounded good.

The band was OFF THE HOOK!!! Jimane Nelson and the crew really took me there! On the video though, they did a bit too much jumping around, and it made me wonder if they were at the club or at the COGIC Holy Convocation! They were quite entertaining. Overall, the band kept it tight, and they really flowed with the recording.

Even though I feel that this wasn't Kim's best recording, I still highly recommend purchasing this CD. One of the songs on the project, "Holy Ghost" ,is a highly-anointed song, and just seeing them minister it on the video made me feel like I was right there in the presence of God with the people at the convention.

Go out and buy this CD along with Kim Burrell's other projects. Be a blessing to this anointed psalmist!
