Vicki Yohe, "Reveal Your Glory - Live From The Cathedral"

Album Review

"Reveal Your Glory-Live From the Cathedral" represents a couple of firsts for the gospel artist Vicki Yohe: It's her debut album for Shanachie (following two releases on CeCe Winans' PureSprings label) and her first live CD. Recorded at Word of Family Worship Cathedral in Atlanta, this collection perfectly captures Yohe's soulful voice and compelling presence. For believers looking to lose themselves in a wonderful worship experience, this is the next best thing to being in a pew. "The Lord Is Good" kicks off the project with an upbeat urban edge. "Continually" is a high-energy praise song. "Because of Who You Are" finds Yohe reprising one of her proven hits. And the potent ballad "One Moment," featuring special guest Anthony Evans, is an album highlight, as is the prayerful "I'm Not Asking for Anything." The combination of Yohe's strong voice backed by the Cathedral choir makes for a memorable live recording that ranks high among the best worship albums issued this year.
