Angie Winans: Melodies of My Heart
Winans gets a lot of help. There's a bevy of background singers creating a call and response effect. There's the synthesizers imitating keyboards and other instruments. Finally there's smooth jazz sax favorite Kirk Whalum, who regrettably is not on all the cuts, but whose contribution to "Mack Avenue" is heavenly. That Winans possesses a ton of talent there is no doubt. If you like gospel blended with other musical genre, you cannot do better than Melodies of My Heart. Some purists might be offended with the contemporary version of the "Lord's Prayer". I found it to be one of the premiere tracks on the album. Lyrics are in the liner notes.
