EDITORS’ NOTES

With a mighty set of pipes and formidable songwriting skills, Shana Wilson turns her sophomore album, I Love You (Live), into a joyful act of spiritual adoration. Wilson—a worship leader at Detroit’s Community Christian Fellowship Ministries—takes creative risks that pay off handsomely as she leads an energized congregation through musically diverse and consistently powerful tunes. Such tracks as “Heaven’s Coming,” “Take Away the Stone," and “We Lift Your Name” feature fiery rock-guitar work and vigorous drumming, spurring on Wilson as she delivers the Word with a passionate edge. The album’s title track is especially effective in this vein, building to an ultra-catchy chorus riding atop an onrushing groove. “Remember Me” and “Give Me You” showcase Wilson’s richly burnished vocals in a ballad setting. Worship leader Julie Meyer lends her folk-tinged tones to the luminous “Alabaster Box”; rising gospel star Tasha Cobbs stops by to bring out the message of gratitude within “Never Be the Same.” The sweet surrender of “At Your Feet” brings I Love You to an uplifting close.
