AllMusic Review by

Like its 2006 Grammy-Award winning predecessor, BLESSED, this 2007 recording offers chills-inducing, big-choir arrangements of some of the most uplifting songs from the gospel, pop, and township jive canons, including songs by Bono ("One") and Jimmy Cliff. The effortless blending of voices goes right to the heart, and the eclectic and inclusionary song list says a little something about the universality of great music.
