Best Album Of All Time!!!

This Cd has all the songs that make you believe and make you wanna jump up and praise God. This I have to admit is the Sounds Of Blackness best album with all the gospel hits put together and put into something unbelieveable

SOunds of Blackness

This group has always been inspirational before Jam&Lewis who just gave them more exposure to the world.Ann Nesby who is the Grandmother of Paris of American Idol shows us where Paris got her pipes. All of SOunds of Blackness albums are great to listen for inspiration. I can not wait for more from them. Keep the songs coming.

I can grow old with listening to their rhythm and harmony.
