As a member of modern hymn trio Selah, Nicol Sponberg is well-known in the Christian music market. With this, she is incredibly ready for her pop close-up. Produced by Mark Heimermann (dcTalk, Jaci Velasquez), the soulful "Resurrection" showcases an artist who, if properly promoted, will be embraced by fans of Annie Lennox and Alison Moyet. Sure, lyrical references to God abound, but more often than not, Sponberg's songs (half of which she co-wrote) are secular tales of devotion and empowerment. Among the highlights are the rock-etched "All That I Believe In," the sassy "Not You Again," the breezy "Crazy in Love" and the poignant title track.—MP
