Editorial Reviews

Product Description

With the 1999 release of her Elektra debut Mountain High...Valley Low, Yolanda Adams became an unqualified Gospel superstar. The album featured the smash hit "Open My Heart" and spent much of the year at #1 on Billboard Magazine's Gospel and Contemporary Christian Charts, eventually selling over a million copies and making Yolanda the best selling Gospel artist of 2000. She was honored with the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album, plus five Stellar Awards, a Soul Train Lady Of Soul Award, three Dove Awards and an NAACP Image Award. Her highly anticipated new Elektra album Believe - her first non-seasonal studio album since Mountain High...Valley Low - is another stunning statement of faith, a sparkling collection that highlights her soaring voice.

Amazon.com

Yolanda Adams has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the charts since her sparkling 1999 debut, Mountain High, Valley Low. A Christmas and live album later, she's back with her most polished and deliberate release yet. Adams calls on friends Shep Crawford, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Kevin Bond to again produce a silky-smooth backdrop for her commanding vocal presence. While the topical matter on Believe seems geared toward a secular market, there are gospel strains on the tracks "Only If God Says Yes" and "Thank You." Most of the beats center around the radio hits "I Gotta Believe" and "Never Give Up," inspirational ballads built to showcase Adams's beautiful voice. There's some edgy funk to boot, with Elektra label mate Karen Clark-Sheard on "Fo' Sho'." Overall, the crossover appeal of Believe seems destined to make Adams's star shine even brighter. --Michael Lyttle

5.0 out of 5 stars Yolanda Adams- Believe December 7, 2001
By Tony
Format:Audio CD
Believe! I believe you will be most impressed after buying this CD. The anointment of this lady shows on every single track of this CD. God has surely blessed her with a powerful voice that inspires, ministers and soothes any soul. My favorites are "Never Give Up" (sure to inspire anyone in need of encouragement), "I Gotta Believe" (loosing faith in God? Listen to this one),"Fo' Sho'"(upbeat, sure to make you to rejoice and praise him), "Thank You" (tradition gospel cut sure to move even the mother of the house), "Song of Faith" (for that troubled person seeking guidance), "I'm Gonna Be Ready" (my favorite!!! beautiful! encouraging! uplifting! anointing! Must I say more?), "Darling Girl" (what a beautiful song to sing for her precious joy)
Buy this CD! I recommend it! You will certainly be glad you did!
Yolanda, you got a winner on your hands again. Keep up the good work....

5.0 out of 5 stars You're Gonna Believe! January 29, 2002
By Wayne
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely incredible!!! I've been a Yolanda Adams fan for years (since her days with the Southeast Inspiration Choir). I've enjoyed seeing her popularity grow throughout the years as well. I have ALL of her music and can say that it LITERALLY get's better and better. She's an incredible talent and never disappoints (especially when singing live). Her performance at this years American Music Awards was yet another example of her undeniable talent and giftedness from the Lord. She has apparently gained quite a few more "followers" as a result of that performance, as I have seen her CD enjoy success on all the charts (Christian/Gospel #1, R & B #8, and even the Pop Charts at #42) -- all this is amazing for a gospel cd. Buy "Believe." Listen to "Believe." And your gonna "Believe!" It's hard to pick a favorite because they're all soooo good, but I would have to say "I'm Gonna Be Ready" and "Fo Sho" are my favorites right now. It changes every day according to what I'm feeling like, but how ever you're feeling, you'll find something on this cd to minister. Yolanda, you've done it again. Many blessings to you!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal relationship March 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The "Believe" CD from Yolanda Adams is confirmation! If you have a personal relationship(..cause you live deep inside of me-"I'm Gonna Be Ready") with our Heavenly Father, this CD ministers to that relationship and serves as a celebration of it. Outside of the living Word,"I'm Gonna Be Ready"alone, can serve as a allegiance of faith (sight beyond what I see...strength to pass any test) and obedience(prepare my mind and prepare my heart). While it's easy to look for "things" to satisfy a void, the "Believe" CD serves as a reminder of what we all were created for, to praise and worship (gonna raise my hands up to the sky, use every breath to glorify..."I'm Thankful") our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ..it's all because of You that I even have life and I'll give my love as a tribute to how great You are, "I'm Gonna Be Ready." "Thank You" has an Aretha Franklin-ness power behind it..I'm compelled to praise you like a woman out of control. So I lift up Holy hands...I'm reminded to praise you for all that you had to do, "Thank You". Be a doer and not just a hearer. I want to pass this test. I'm gonna be ready!!

I enjoy this whole album. Everytime I listen to this CD I feel so much better about my day, and my faith is recharged. I like I never have to skip a song when I listen to this CD. There are so many times I press repeat and just let a song repeat 2-4 times and start singing right along. Yolanda was blessed with a beautiful voice, and her songs are always right on time. This is one album you should have as part of your gospel collection. Yolanda gives her all in every song she sings. Believe is an excellent, excellent album.

These are the songs I will repeat when I need to recharge my spirit:

2. I gotta believe

6. Unconditional

7. Anything

8. Only if God Says Yes

12. I'm thankful

I'm thankful is different from what Yolanda usually does. Her songs are usually mid-tempo or slow temp songs, but this one is upbeat and hip. It was a treat for me, and a song I love working out to.

Some of the wonderful Lyrics to Thankful:

You're there to pick me up

Whenever I fall down

And I can't say enough

'Bout the things you've done for me

Without you in my life

I don't know where I'd be

Release my heart felt praise

Gonna life my voice and sing.

Chorus

Gonna raise my hands up to the sky

Use every breath to glorify

Your name your work your way

'Cause I'm so thankful

For life, for health, for strength to live

For sharing love and fellowship

For every blessing that you give

I'm thankful

I'm thankful there is an artist as talented and annointed like Yolanda to spread her words of inspiration through music. This is an album you must have in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yolanda's at a New Place! December 27, 2001
By jlbrown
Format:Audio CD
I knew from the onset when she returned to the studio that the next project would be different from Mountain High...Valley Low! I knew that the microscrope would be on her because of the monumental success of that project. Well, I'm here to let you know that Yolanda Adams Crawford did not disappoint! Yolanda is the kind of artist that you can not place in a box because she has to follow the leading of God's spirit! Every cd will be different. She strives with all of her heart to produce quality music, that not just sounds good but is able to reach the heart and spirit of a person. She has done exactly that with this project. This project has a flow and theme all on it's own. Whatever you do listener, do not buy this project expecting to find another Mountain High...Valley Low. Don't box Yolanda in like that...instead come find hope, encouragement, motivation and enlightment in Believe! Believe can be summed up in this statement right here: Yolanda informs the listener that it's not enough for you to have God in your life and him pushing you but you also have to have a confidence in yourself and confidence in the power of God that gives, sustains and enhances ones life. The first two tracks "Never Give Up" and "I Gotta Believe" encourages one to establish their dreams through dependence on God and he'll supply you with the confidence and strength you need to accomplish it! Never Give Up is a powerful, adult contemporary ballad while I Gotta Believe is a nice groovy pop song. Both have very good instrumentation. We then move into the nice duet "Fo' Sho'". The contemporary gospel song fits perfectly because it encourages you to not give up because things are going to work out Fo' Sho'. Read more ›
