iTunes Editors’ Notes

2005's Awaken advanced Natalie Grant several steps away from lightweight teen-pop towards more substantial lyric themes and musical settings. Grant’s vocal gifts are obvious here — her full-bodied lows and smoothly-executed highs are used to advance her message rather than for technical effect. Awaken emphasizes the positive on sleek, faith-affirming numbers like “Something Beautiful,” “Live 4 Today,” and “Captured.” More weighty are piano-centered ballads like “Held” (an affirmation of hope amid sorrow) and “Home” (a poignant look at human trafficking). Grant reveals yet another side of her talents by turning in a credible Southern soul performance (in tandem with Wynonna Judd) on “Bring It All Together.” Though she can pour on the melodrama if need be, Grant truly shines on songs like “The Real Me,” when her trembling voice captures the urgency of spiritual need. Producer Bernie Herms (Natalie’s husband) surrounds her in layered sonic backdrops, mixing modern pop with theater rock and a touch of Maria Carey-style R&B. Awaken catches Grant still on the rise, embracing her divahood while retaining her grace.

Customer Reviews

Natalie

I think this Album is great! I have met Natalie Grant and she is a wonderful person with a great personality and has been through a lot (more than you'd think) to be able to write the music she has come out with! Something Beautiful is a very good song and is my favorite on this album!

awesome album!!

I met Natalie a while ago @ my church and just last weekend on the Brio Mother & Daughter Cruise!!! Her CD is great, i love it!!! She is so nice and sweet and truly loves and cares about everyone!! I can't wait for her next CD!!!

Very Good Music

First time I've listened to Natalie Grant - bought the music because of Held but came to like several of the other songs on this album more than Held. Her voice is extremely powerful and this album does a good job conveying her talent and message. Especially like the song Bring It All Together with Natalie and Wynonna. Looking forward to hearing future releases from this talented musician.
