AllMusic Review by

With her first new recording in over three years, media superstar Kathie Lee returns to her gospel roots of yesteryear with this 13-track offering. Sonically, it's a mixed bag. It's very obvious that the main attraction of the record is her voice, which vibrates more than a rubber band on many of the songs. And while this is all very fine and good for those seeking just the main attraction, this is by no means justification to place her vocals so high atop the music and prominently in the mix. However, this minor flaw does not detract from the overall heartfelt message that Gifford emotes song after song. It's a testament to her versatility as a singer that she can feel comfortable in so many different styles of music, and can so freely and effortlessly express herself and exorcise all of the demons that haunted her public life. It's also a testament to the resiliency of her faith and her ability to let the world openly observe her healing process. And you can't get much higher praise than that.
