EDITORS’ NOTES

Shuree Rivera’s memories of a troubled childhood in Columbus, Ohio, form the backstory behind the life-affirming songs on her debut album, One Girl Can Change the World. Her exuberant brand of dance/pop offers hope to those facing similar hard times. Now a worship leader at a suburban Chicago church, she makes her Christian faith plain in these positive, groove-powered tracks. The title tune is a hard-pumping anthem with an empowering message aimed at young women, combining Katy Perry’s exuberance with Nicole C. Mullen’s fervor. Under the guidance of GRAMMY®-nominated producer Oh, Hush! (Cee Lo Green, Justin Bieber), Shuree dips into electronica on “Where Am I,” embraces soulful balladry on “Undeniable," and reaches back to ’80-style R&B pop on “Dancin’ 2 Eternity.” Whatever the musical setting, God remains a central presence on this album, whether Shuree is celebrating her transformed life (“Broken Is Beautiful”) or reaffirming her constant connection to the Lord (“Mine”). A spacy dubstep remix of “One Girl” brings the album to a body-grabbing finish.
