Sara Von Davenport
Anointed Praise

Tommy Boy Gospel celebrates its fourth release and introduces its second new artist in less than a month with the arrival of Sara Anointed PraiseVon Davenport. This 17-year old sensation brings forth a tremendous effort titled Anointed Praise, with a great mix of old school and new school tracks. Produced by Derek “DOA” Allen, this project brings Sara together with some of gospel’s most renowned names, including Andrae Crouch and Fred Hammond.

Some of the more memorable tracks from this project include the leadoff track, “Higher”, “Have a Little Mercy”, and “The Best That I Can Do”. Reminiscent of Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Davenport sings with emotion and feeling while still bringing the ‘flava that burns up the urban ear.

“Sara Von”, as she is often referred to throughout the album, alsoSara Von Davenport includes an awesome remake of the old Andrae Crouch classic, “Jesus Is the Answer”. While the project speaks to a diverse audience, Davenport maintains her youth and addresses issues from the heart, as documented in the song “The Best That I Can Do”. Davenport is sure to appeal to fans of Brandy and Monica with gorgeous ballads as well as tracks laced with pure funk. This project is definitely a “keepa” and maybe even a collector’s item.
