Kicking off "Witness Protection" with the appropriately titled song "I'm Here," Dave Hollister announces his return to gospel proclaiming his allegiance to god singing "Here are my hands, use them as you please, lord I give you total control of me."

After a number of years on the secular charts, including his well received stint as part of the R&B group Blackstreet. Hollister seems most at home with gospel where he can truly speak about his trials, tribulations and breakthroughs. Although the album is not necessarily a traditional gospel album, Hollister does a great job at keeping contemporary and youthful audiences entertained while also channeling those who came before him such as John P. Kee, Fred Hammond and Marvin Winans.

Hollister fuses bits of R&B, Gospel and a tinge of Rock into a number of songs that are bound to rock the homes of young adults, teens and the more contemporary inclined gospel fan. "More of You" an ode to god, where Hollister proclaims that he would rather have more of him than anything else is one of the best songs on the album. "More of You," which may even be construed as a 5-star update to the classic gospel song and church favorite "Silver & Gold" finds Hollister reflecting on his past and looking toward the future. Proclaiming "everything I want, everything thing I need, material things...it don't mean a thing," Hollister continues in what seems like an ode to the days of his Blackstreet days singing: "The house, the deal, the mils, the jesibels, and the cheap grills... realizing it wasn't real, now I'm a vessel and I need to be filled.

I haven't written a regular review in awhile, but after hearing Dave's new album I feel compelled to write something. First, I am so happy to see that Dave decided to do another contemporary gospel album, instead of doing another secular album. So I just had to get it.

What makes me like this album is the song "You Are". This song shows to me that he's just not a good singer, but he also has a heart to worship God in Spirit and in truth. I had to play this song a few times. Then it flows into another song called "Just Worship" to give you a time for worship.

I even like the musical cleverness of his contemporary song "More of You." If you listened to secular music in the 90's you'll know what I mean. I also like to hear his story in the song called "Church", because he didn't end up allowing some of the foolishness that occurs in some churches to stop him from connecting to God.

So I would have to say this is a good sophomore gospel album for him. I still have to say, I'm glad to see he came back.

*********UPDATE June 3, 2009

Well, this album has proven the test of time for me. Now, I can truly say this album is anointed for me. And I don't use that word lightly, because some people think anyone with a good singing voice is anointed. However, when I listen to this album it causes me to focus on God and the think about ministry. It brings me into a mindset to worship God, not just in a song but in a lifestyle. So when I listen to this album the anointing truly breaks off the yoke.

I love the way the last half of the album is organized. When it gets to the song "Look Up", it causes you be encouraged through his song of tidings.

Being a Dave Hollister fan from his secular days I have learned to appreciate him as a singer and his songs. He didn't disappoint on "Witness Protection" because the songs are very relevant and his voice is still as powerful as ever. God Bless You, Dave Hollister!

Dave is one of the best singers around. The first half of the CD is good, the other half is excellent.

I am not feeling this project by Dave Hollister. I guess I ordered it by his name and not by hearing any of the songs on this CD. I think it was released as a gospel CD but it doesn't seem like he knows which direction he's going. Other fans may like it, but it does nothing for me. Dave also has a gifted and talented voice for singing but maybe this is one of his first ones and he didn't have a feel for what he was actually doing or was actually trying to convey to his fans. I just didn't connect with him on this CD...at all. Can't even remember any of the songs on it or which one(s) got airplay.

Most would think that he couldn't possibly do gospel especially after being the front lead of a successful R&B group ' Blackstreet' and then going solo and creating a fan base of his own. However, this talented vocal front man has done it again with his second christian, yes, christian/gospel cd. This cd is even more profound than the first one, Dave tells the story of what the christian walk is and what it should be based upon his hurdles, pitfalls, and successes in his own walk. From start to finish, this cd will give you the clear understanding of why he labels himself as 'The Protected'.
