This talented family group has become one of the hottest tickets in the Southern gospel field. It attracts enthusiastic crowds in concert and dominates the airwaves on Southern gospel stations. Well-written songs (most penned by patriarch Gerald Crabb) and passionate performances have become the group's calling cards. And this new album delivers both in abundance. Group members share leads throughout The Walk. "I Will Follow You" is a beautiful ballad about surrendering to the Lord. "The Cross" is a powerful statement about the sacrifice Jesus made on Calvary. Such uptempo cuts as the title track have a vibrant energy that listeners will surely find irresistible. "If You Only Knew" has a soulful edge more akin to urban gospel than the quartet sound most readily associated with Southern gospel. Their ability to blend different sounds into a unique style makes the Crabb Family a true musical revelation. Last month, the youthful ensemble picked up two Gospel Music Assn. Dove Awards. This smartly crafted album will only fuel the group's momentum.—DEP
