Grace (Deluxe Edition) [Live] by Tasha Cobbs Leonard on Apple Music

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Grace lifts Tasha Cobbs into the big leagues with inspired performances that combine smooth yet powerful deliveries with a spiritual humility that keeps the songs focused on her sanctified message. The album benefits from the production and songwriting input of VaShawn Mitchell, who previously teamed up with Cobbs on his 2010 hit “Nobody Greater.” “Get Up” kicks off Grace with guitar flourishes and funky syncopation, followed by the arena-rock energy of “Love You Forever” and the melodic bounce of “Happy.” Cobbs excels at soulful testimonials, as openhearted ballads like “For Your Glory” and the title track make clear. If there’s a standout moment here, it’s “Break Every Chain,” a stirring call to worship that captures Cobbs rising from humble prayer to fiery exaltation with the aid of The Kurt Carr Singers’ Timiney Figueroa Caton. Fine players like keyboardist Vaughn Phoenix, guitarist Rick Watford, and drummer James R. Barrett keep the sound tight without losing its celebratory edge. Recorded live at Northview Christian Church in Dothan, Ala., Grace is a truly heavenly gift to gospel fans.
