AllMusic Review by

James Fortune's strength is in understanding how to put gospel and praise songs over to a young 21st century audience, and with his featured choir, FIYA (which stands for Free in Yahweh's Abundance), he freely incorporates hip-hop arrangements and urban beats into his recordings. This two-disc set, recorded in September of 2013 at Atlanta's Word of Faith Church, is his first live release, and features guest spots from Israel Houghton, Isaac Carree, Tasha Cobbs, Zacardi Cortez, and Da' T.R.U.T.H., among others.
