AllMusic Review by

Ten songs on the traditional tip, but with an urban flavor. Standouts are Staton's renditions of the hymns "When He Reached Down His Hand For Me," "Glory To His Name" and the title track. Only complaint is that a lot of the music was programmed, instead of played by musicians. That's fine for dance, but a much harder sale for traditional gospel.
