Album Review ~ Cliff & Antoinette Murray

Category Religious/Christian Genre Urban Praise Release Date April 20, 2018.

This is what music is all about! And the Murrays—a dynamic duo—don’t hold back from start to finish, so that the soft smoothness with which Antoinette opens the album is rightly matched with a powerful close that would …
