If you have never ventured into Gospel Music ~ this CD will take you there. The songs on this CD are more than moving. They will take you to the wonderment of true gospel. The Choir that backs Mr. Franklin sound like Angels singing from Heaven back to is truely a experience I wish all to hear and feel. With all Kirk Franklin's music "emotion" is a factor ~ it is feelings that can only be explained in a higher place ~ the lyrics, the song's, the music is incredible.
Why We Sing is a song that will touch you Forever.
Pennies from Heaven is a song too - that will take you there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The One That Started It All April 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the must have Kirk Franklin CD to add to your gospel collection. Even though it came out over 10 years ago, this is still my favorite CD of his. As much as I am a Kirk Franklin fan, this is the one that I can listen to straight through without using the skip button. If you don't have it, get it. If you already have it, listen and enjoy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's my friend October 19, 1998
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled up on this album when I was feeling blue and needed some direction. I grew up with this "character" and was quite surprised at seeing his album in the gospel section. This "character" turned out to be a REAL friend. His music woke me up out of the depression I was in and started me on my way. I've always wondered why I liked to sing and why it came to me so naturally. Kirk explained it completely and freely. Many congrats, my friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathless. May 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is food for the heart...and the head.

I am neither a traditional Christian nor belong to an organized religion

but am a music lover, student, and instructor who has been pulled up by this CD.

Rodney Frazier (producer),

Arthur Dyer (music director)

and Kirk are the real news...12 years after the fact.

To say that this material has stood the test of a decade would be gross understatement. The arrangements are outstanding, harmonies phat and tight.

Fun as the newer hip hop material is (through which I discovered the earlier work), Kirk is so solidly a proponent of the original idiom... as well as an extension of it.

Wow.The first and last cuts on the CD are the ones that I play over and over.

I haven't used them up yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing June 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Filled with songs that will motivate anyone who feels weak in their walk with God. These songs will give you the motivation you need to keep on this narrow road that we as lovers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has chosen to take. God Bless you and may HIS blessings continue to fall on you all. Amen.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIP HOP, R&B, SOUL & REGGAE all blended into one January 14, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an absolutely amazing album, the song Till we meet again is a real tear jerker, Silver& Gold a real praise song, Why We Sing my all time favourite song. Speak to me is a real island flavoured song.
