AllMusic Review by

Recorded live in St. Agnes Baptist Church in Houston, ROSE OF GOSPEL captures Dorinda Clark-Cole doing what she does best: ministering for the Lord with her powerful set of pipes. Clark-Cole is backed by a full band here, and while there are modern stylistic flourishes (such as the Miami electro-dance vibe on "Great is the Lord" and the hip-hop-flavored funk of "Work to Do"), the singer is at her best on old-school gospel rave-ups like "So Many Times." The sheer force and range of Clark-Cole's voice make this a contemporary gospel record to notice.
