Chicago native Kenny Lewis plays gospel music influenced by both classic gospel tradition and contemporary secular music. The lead-off track to his 2007 release, EVERY BODY EVERY BODY, rides a funk-disco groove, complete with vocoder and electro overtones, recalling Cameo or the Gap Band. Yet, as his lyrics attest, Lewis's primary allegiance is to Christ. Ballads and mid-tempo, R&B-inflected tunes round out EVERY BODY EVERY BODY, but it's Lewis and One Voice's message of ministry that truly drives the album.
