Editorial Reviews

Coko embarked on a solo career in 1998 following the break-up of the highly successful swingbeat trio SWV. Her mother was a gospel artist, and Coko grew up singing in church choirs around the Bronx. She formed a duo with Leanne `Lelee` Lyons, which, with the addition of Tamara `Taj` Johnson, evolved over the years into SWV (Sisters With Voices). The trio enjoyed huge pop success during the mid-90s with the singles `I'm So Into You`, `Weak` and `Right Here`/`Human Nature`. Coko first recorded as a solo artist in 1997, while still a member of SWV, duetting with Johnny Gill on a cover version of `Fire And Desire` for the Booty Call soundtrack. She was also featured on the theme tune to Will Smith's smash hit movie, Men In Black. After the break-up of SWV, Coko went into the studio with leading producers Rodney Jerkins, Michael Powell and Brian Alexander Morgan to record her solo debut. Featuring duets with rapper Eve and label mate Tyrese, Hot Coko was a classy reassertion of Coko`s soul diva credentials. This is her long-awaited follow-up.

This album is without a doubt one of the best gospel albums dropped this year!! Its definetely in the top 3! Coko totally outdid herself with this album! The anointing was thick on this cd like you wouldnt believe! I actually received this album on MY SAVIOURS BIRTHDAY, Christmas, and you know how we wake up at like 2:00, well I had to actually take the cd out by the third song I listened to because I was screaming so loud and praising that I was going to wake up the entire household, thats how good it is! Cokos voice is amazing! Her range and runs are out of this world!! But her anointing is the BEST thing because thats what destroys the yoke, you feel me? ENDOW ME almost had me in tears, Fantasia, Faith Evans, Coko, and Lil Mo killed that song to the fullest!! I was blown away. Theres something on here for everybody, worship, praise, slow jams, jams, everything. She had writers and producers from Donald Lawrence to Walter Hawkins to Warren Campbell! Basically this album is what a gospel album is suppose to sound like! Buy dont burn or copy, youll be glad you did.

I HAVE NOT STOPPED PLAYING THIS SONG SINCE THE FIRST SECOND THAT I HEARD IT. This song is truly annointed by God. Thank God for the musical genius who put together the collaboration of Coko, Faith, Lil Mo & Fantasia. It has brought tears of joy and happiness into my life. GOD BLESS YOU GIRLS, KEEP PRAISING HIM AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO DIRECT YOUR PATH. I AM PRAYING THAT THIS SONG WILL SOON BE PERFORMED LIVE (HOPEFULLY ON THE CELBRATION OF GOSPEL OR SOMETHING).

I did a review on this CD a couple of days ago and I have no idea where it is. Anyway, I love this CD!!! It is filled with Coko's anointed voice over songs that are uplifting. I call this my "happy" CD. The songs are so encouraging. I love just about all of the songs on this CD. My favorites are Grateful (such a true message), Clap Your Hands, and she also has Midnight on here (the song she did with Brent Jones). Coko is overjoyed and it comes across in her singing and with every song. I hope that she will stay with Gospel.

A newly reborn spirit and a positive outlook on life have shaped 'Grateful', former SWV frontwoman Coko's second solo album. One thing Coko has not lost is that incredible voice. The woman can blow. 'Look at Me', a six minute joyous spiritual revival, is wrapped in lush insturmetation and Coko's soul rattling vocals. Blaring horns, hand claps, and delicious backing vocals catapult 'Mighty God' to the kind ebullient heights that would make any legendary gospel artist proud. 'Clap Your Hands' stomps and claps its way to a funky climax as horns blare and Coko reaches for those notes that will surely reach the heavens.

And then, Ladies and Gentlemen, Coko unleashes her showstopper. 'Endow Me'. Gathering some of the greatest voices in Rhythm and Blues to spread the message of God, the song is a soul rectifying testimony overflowing with some of the most incredible vocals anyone has ever heard. Fantasia, Faith Evans, Lil Mo', and Coko blaze through this nearly 7 minute track with the kind of passion that will leave you with chills down your spine and tears in your eyes. All of these women should be doing gospel because their voices are anointed. Never has a song affected me so deeply. All four ladies can blow, and I cannot wait to see them all tear the stage apart when they sing this live (If they ever do).

'The Reason'is a feel-good mid-tempo groove track. Coko's delicious voice warms the heart and her inspirational lyrics speak a universal message to all people to find the the thing in life that will give them inner peace and joy. 'I Get Joy' is a bona-fide jam. Coko injects the new jill grooves she perfected with SWV along with gorgeous harmonies bursting in the background.

I bought this album as soon as it was released. Coko SHUTS IT DOWN WITH THIS ALBUM! I absolutely love it from beginng to end. Her vocals are amazing. She sounds better than ever to me. She uses every bit of range that her voice has and she sounds wonderful doing it. The stand out track in my opinion is the "Hymn Medley" Coko belts out a note that Ive never heard her sing before.This cd is a must to your collection.

I'm avid lover of gospel music, and a true '90s girl who loved the R&B and hip hop of that decade (which cannot be mentioned without SWV), so I was curious to hear what Ms. Coko was gonna do. But when I heard YouTube video of 'Endow Me' - one of my fave Clark Sisters' joint... Whew! I had to get it. I must admit, I was hoping that this wasn't one of those albums with one great song, and when I purchased my copy I was not disappointed! I love tracks #'s 1 thru 6, and the 'rock' song was a cool addition. Her soprano is so clear and she sounds like she had fun recording this! Though I love gospel, the overtone is not so 'churchy', but it is still great gospel music. I loved it so much that I sent out a review to my friends and a few of them have purchased it and like it as well. If you like MaryMary, Karen Clark Sheard, Fred Hammond, I think you'll enjoy Coko's GRATEFUL as much as I did. Stop thinking about it and get this cd! (I have never met her before in my life, so there is no personal gain or investment here, just love. Great job, Coko, and God bless!)

YES! She's back!
Is this her husband? Get off Amazon man!! Lol-Just kidding. I'm a big fan of Coko and I cannot wait to get my hands on this masterpiece. I'm looking forward to the Endow Me remake with Lil' Mo, Faith Evans, and Fantasia (of American Idol fame). I hear it's great. Coko has a distinctive sound... Read More
