As you probably know by now, I have a pretty wide variety of songs on my iPod. I listen to anything and everything. So when the opportunity to review the new CD from Rebecca St. James came along, I quickly said “yes”. Released on Tuesday, April 5th, “I Will Praise You” is Rebecca’s first studio project since 2005. I’ve always enjoyed Rebecca’s voice and music and this new CD doesn’t disappoint. In order to get another perspective, I gave the CD to my bride to listen to as well. I thought she could give a better review than I could. Here are her thoughts:
“Rebecca St, James has a beautifully smooth, soothing tone to her voice. This collection of songs gives you a few uptempo originals, a few new versions of some oldies-but-goodies, and a great time of worship with beautiful ballads. As a female myself, I enjoyed listening. It won’t be one that I grab all the time, but one that will frequent my quiet times with the Lord.”.
I felt the same as I listened to it for the first time. Rebecca’s passion to reach the world can be heard in every track. She has such a recognizable voice and her ability to deliver familiar worship songs in a way that makes them sound new is great.
I am giving away a copy of Rebecca’s new CD to one lucky commenter to this post. All you have to do is leave your comment and I will enter your name into a drawing I will do next week for this CD.
