While perhaps not as evenly keeled as others in their live series, Praise Him... Live!, winner of the 1996 Dove Award for the best choral collection, is arguably the strongest representation of the power with which the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir makes itself fully present for worship. Clearly, the choir take to heart Christ's message of being a living manifestation of the Gospel. Typical of their material, the choir eschews numbers that talk down, condemn, or glorify hair-shirt Christianity, choosing instead to focus on the everlasting well of God's love and the infectious joy and praise that comes with believing. Glorious moments are achieved on "I'm Not Afraid," wherein the choir, led by soloist Calvin Hunt's spectacular enthusiasm, punctuates each syllable of song with fully realized exultation, and on the public-domain-based "Medley of Change," a rockin' handclapper featuring soloist Robin Giles. Praise Him closes with "Lead Me Lord," a dedicated anthem of discipleship. --Paige La Grone

"The best gospel song ever sung by them I thought was "Holy is the Lord" on their previous cd,until I heard the best constructed(if you will)song ever produced,which are definitely "I'm not Afraid" and "be Holy".This choir's ideas seems to be endless.Every song has a message,and every song is sung with the strong purpose to drive the message home.I introduced my own youth choir to The Brooklyn Tabernacle choir by teaching them most of their songs,and they loved it so much,that most of them agreed that if they get to visit the United States they will firstly be attending a live concert of this amazing choir.According to the members in my youth group,Disneyland or Hollywood must wait,to see this choir perform live is their ultimate dream.That says a lot of how far Brooklyn's music message has reached that even the youth in crime-ridden South Africa prefer their music to rave or even rap. I wish there where more of their music available in South Africa.I feel this choir has a song for every situation that life has to offer,and there music soothed my soul that of my choir memebers with such ease.Their orchestra is amazing;coupled with rich,talented voices so well directed by Carol Cymbala,I dont think they have their match anywhere in the world."

"This CD is in my opinion, one of the very BEST of Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir's works. If you want ANOINTED music, this is the CD to get! Of course, any of their CD's are fantastic, but this particular one is definitely one of my personal favorites."

"first time i listened to this album was when i got it for free on audio tape after a concert in Madison Square Garden. And since this day it never went out to be one of my favorite tapes.This album for me is the "soul" in person with the power of warmnes, melodic style and rhythm of a 100person choir you don't find very often. When you listen to it, it really lifts you up also if you don't believe in god. Just great music for every situation in life. (sorry for my English, don't use it very often)"
