The disc kicks off with Della Reese’s soulful reminder of God’s abiding presence (the Touched by an Angel theme song, “Walk With You”). Supporting people who are struggling or in pain is central to Faith Hill’s “When You Cry” and the passionate Amanda Marshall anthem, “Believe in You.” On her two cuts, Wynonna values love as life’s greatest gift (“You Were Loved”) and pledges to honor God with every breath (“Testify to Love”). Acknowledging that people can sometimes feel insignificant, Amy Grant urges them to persevere and make a difference (“Shine All Your Light”). “Love Can Move Mountains” (by Celine Dion) preaches optimism and having faith in others. “God Loves You” (by Jaci Velasquez) and Keb’ Mo’s spiritual commission (“Follow Me Up”) focus on heavenly things. Other artists articulate joy, express renewed hope and search for dignity.
This inspirational disc celebrates love, honors God and recognizes our duty to care for one another. A winner!
