Renowned pastor/artist/author T.D.

Renowned pastor/artist/author T.D. Jakes assembles, oversees and contributes dramatic narrative to this musical companion piece to his forthcoming book, "He-Motions." The album follows a format similar to the two gospel projects spawned by Jakes' previous best-selling literary outing, "Woman, Thou Art Loosed" (1994). Combining strong songs in a largely adult R&B/gospel vein and sterling performances from a star-studded roster of artists, the project is poised to hit the top of the gospel and contemporary Christian charts. Highlights include Donnie McClurkin's "King Inside of Me," Kirk Franklin & New Breed's "Emotional" and rookie Micah Stampley's "Take My Life." "He-Motions" is a perfect balance of exhortation and great entertainment.—GE
