AllMusic Review

While the SONGS 4 WORSHIP series has established quite a name for itself in the world of praise-and-worship music, anyone thinking they know what to expect from these volumes will be thrown for a bit of a loop by this entry. While the usual spiritual messages are present in the lyrics, those lyrics are sung entirely in Spanish. Even that doesn't tell you quite what to expect though. The more cynically minded might suppose that the SONGS 4 WORSHIP folks were diving head-on into the Latin pop world in some strange crossover attempt, but this is no Ricky Martin-finds-Jesus affair. For one thing, some of the songs are actually sung by non-Latin artists already familiar to fans of this series (Don Moen, for example). And while some of the tunes bear a strong Latin musical flavor, a number of them veer closer to the kind of gospel-pop amalgam found on previous volumes. Consider it one small step for worship music, one giant leap for the SONGS 4 WORSHIP family.
