I thought it was a good album and I really enjoyed the versatility on it; however I think there could have been other choices for Gospel album of the year but I don't think this was a crime. Just my opinion.

As Christians we need to offer serious altis. imagine someone who's not a Christian and he just win a gospel nominee just like that. Oh no something is wrong it reminds me a scripture that says slaves on horses while prince are walking on their feet
