"This was one of the first albums I heard from Crystal Lewis, and it's made me a believer in the genuineness of her faith and practice. She is a true songstress in what the title means. She not only has applied her gift and abilities, she has dedicated it the One who died for her and rose again - even Christ Jesus.
The songs on this album gravitate between the upbeat to the traditional to the sacred, and it's a great mix from one to the other. I liked "Shine, Jesus, Shine," and the intro to this one was marvelous, like many of the other intros. Then there's the powerhouse "I Know My Redeemer Lives," and "Come Just as You Are," as well as others.
An incredible collection, and I'm on my way to "discovering" what I've been missing in my collection for quite some time- additional Crystal Lewis recordings, to the glory of God.
All her music is "GOLD"

"I have admired Crystal Lewis since she stared on Nickelodeon's TV show "Roundhouse". One of my fav songs from the show is "I Can Dream". When the show canceled I thought all I had to enjoy Crystal's voice was the recorded tapes I had made of the show.
I then discovered that she was performing for a Christian Crusade at "Knott's Berry Farm" in California. I jumped at the chance to see her live, but due to circumstances out of my control I never got to see her perform. In exchange I bought every CD I could afford (I was 14 at the time) not even knowing a single track on any of them. It's now 8 years later and 8 albums added to my collection (and growing), and I feel like she has been a part of my life since my teen years. Her music has been growing right along with me. I've enjoyed her music with my friends, my sister, my mother, and even my grandmother (she's not the biggest modern music fan but likes some of Crystal's work).Try her CD's they soothe, excite, grow, and never get old.My Favorite songs from her are:-Gold
-Only Fools (the original and the new version on "fearless")
-Amazing Grace (avail. on "The Bride" & "Greatest Hits" - her version is the best I've ever heard!)
and so many more I can't name.I just wish she would come and perform in the bay area - I yet have had a chance to see her live!!!"
