WOW Gospel 2009
Following its trend of honoring a particular city, WOW Gospel 2009 sets it sights on Washington DC, fittingly enough for this historic year. With fireworks over the image of the the US Capitol building on the cover art, the blazing display continues, in aural terms, on the inside, as the powerful force of Gospel music, both contemporary and traditional, fuels this extravaganza.
New artists from Jason Champion to the Sunday Best artists Crystal Aikin and Shari Addison are included together with established greats such as Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp and Mary Mary.
The first disc focuses on the contemporary sound, with songs such as "Praise Him Now" from Kierra Sheard, "Striving" from Dave Hollister, and a powerful remake of Commissioned's "Running Back To You" from Heather Headley in the mix.
Byron Cage ("Royalty"), Regina Belle ("God Is Good"), Ricky Dillard ("The Light"), Dorinda Clark-Cole ("Take It Back") and others, including Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Maurette Brown Clark and The City of Refuge Sanctuary Choir, round out the traditional collection.
Not to overwhelm you, but when you've exhausted yourself with the 32-song audio assemblage, don't forget that the DVD equivalent is also available!
