AllMusic Review by

Jai Josefs is a well-known songwriter whose credits range from Little Richard to Jose Feliciano. His best-loved song, "I Love Myself the Way I Am," is used extensively by Louise Hay and other new age leaders. While this song does not appear on his latest tape, You Are the Light presents five new songs that are dynamic and inspiring in their message. The second side has four instrumentals, beginning with the calm serenity of "Place of Peace" and leading up to the rhythmic drum of "Heartbeat of a Child." With reggae-tinged beats under the pleasing vocals and a fine cast like Richard Hardy on flute and saxophone and Tali Marcus on violin, You Are the Light is a delightful way to get closer to yourself or share time with others.
