Album Review ~ Hiding Place By Tori Kelly

Category Religious/Christian Genre Gospel R&B/Pop/Soul Release Date September 14, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review Tori Kelly’s Hiding Place is rich with soul, vulnerability and truth. Her heart, lyrics and voice touch to the deepest parts, whether she’s hitting the highest notes or riding the lowest pitches. Clearly intentional and delicate about her theme, it is obvious Kelly aimed to inspire faith, hope, and love for the darkest of times with her story, as she boldly tells about the goodness and faithfulness of God in leading her through her toughest times and supplying her joy, strength, and love for God, herself, and others when she needed it the most. Kelly may have aimed to bless and inspire, but it’s simply impossible not to be entertained by Hiding Place, as each unique song touches on something that resonates on a personal level with most living souls. *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. My gratitude to Propeller Consulting, LLC for a free CD copy in exchange for my honest opinion.   …

Album Review ~ The Outcome By The Church Vessel

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Rock/Praise/Worship Release Date September 21, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review The Outcome begins joyfully, inspiring a heart of worship and dance to God. The lyrics don’t hold back, reminding the believer of Who God is—His faithfulness and goodness! The instrumentals collide with the lyrics to create magnificent music of praise to the one true God. The Outcome album promises an indisputable message of faith, hope, and love—the kind that is joyous and unshakable—because it is found alone in God. The Outcome song (#3 & #4) summarizes the entire theme of the album beautifully. A powerful song of worship and victory that presents dauntless faith, fiery hope, and courageous love for God and people that preaches the truth and power of God’s glorious splendor, which overcomes the darkness and breaks every chain and sets free. In it is a message of the pathway to healing for every kind of brokenness, stronghold, and bondage through worship. The Outcome album is good music to soak your soul in as you pray, worship, work, go …

Rating 4 Stars Review This pure rock release is a breath of fresh air as Zahna doesn’t hold back in expressing her passion for God and her zeal for a relationship with Him.

Album Review ~ Nobody Loves Me Like You Do By Chris Tomlin

Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date August 17, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review This softly worshipful but powerful praise & worship shows a heart that displays gratitude and satisfaction toward God with the finest of music, lyrics, and passionate voices. There’s a maturity to the tone of the music that reflects the truth that Tomlin has been doing this for a while; but this is also beyond fine-tuned skill; this is a person that has grown in their relationship with God. It is seen in the genuineness of his heart throughout the EP. It can’t be explained. Only heard and perceived. For an album that could easily lead you into a mode of worship, pick up Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You Do.

Album Review ~ Control (Vol. 1) By Joel Vaughn

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Pop Release Date July 27, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review Timely. Deep. Sincere…are just a few words to describe Joel Vaughn’s remarkable forthcoming release, Control Vol. 1. The maturity with which Vaughn speaks his truth is inspirationally amiable and garners respect. It takes growth and humility to confess one’s truth and messy experiences in such a way that in the end, it highlights peace, gratitude, hope, and joy…and, yeah, it’s no wonder Vaughn chooses to close the album with a number titled Joy. Every song is clearly prayerfully written, packed with powerful candor, and track arranged in a manner to speak a message of life, peace, hope, and rest that can be found only in Jesus. In the midst of this awesomeness that chronicles a peculiar season where God pulls down pride, false humility and lovingly builds this individual with the perseverance that fosters character, and adds the peace, rest, and joy that comes only from genuine faith brought forth from drilling trials, please pay attention to track #4, Back Where I …

Artist Scoop ~ Interview With Music Group, God’s Chosen

God’s Chosen is a special group of charming ladies that love God and are clearly passionately about His work on earth, particularly in the ministry of music/singing. Each woman is amazingly strong in her faith in a way that inspires the other members of the group, as well as people who’ve encountered them and/or their work. The passion in their voices—individually and collectively—is contagious, entertaining and courageous! They released their wonderful album, self-titled (read the TBAP review here) today, and in celebration of that, took the time to chat a bit with TBAP, letting the world have a little peek into their lives. Take a look! Miranda ~ Hello! So good to have you on TBAP! Please tell us a bit about God’s Chosen. Also, how did you choose the name for your group? GC: God’s Chosen consists of three ladies (Keisha, Sarah, and Zebrina). We are women who are deeply in love with God, committed to ministry, and die-hard fans of Gospel and Christian music. The name came about quite haphazardly. It was the …

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Alternative/Rock Release Date June 15, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review A song about identity and boldness in Jesus that produces the confidence to shine for Him, live for God, and tell the world the truth about the salvation that is available for all. This is a song with heart and strength. About Francesca Battistelli Francesca Battistelli is a Dove and Grammy Award winning Christian pop artist who began her music career at a young age.
