EDITORS’ NOTES

The release of Kerrie Roberts’ sophomore album was delayed almost a year—but this is a bona fide case of the wait being worth it. Time for the Show improves on the solid virtues of the Christian artist’s debut release in nearly every respect, with upbeat, Spirit-affirming songs and vocal performances that invite comparisons to everyone from Whitney Houston to Kelly Clarkson. Roberts sings with both power and nuance, never letting her impressive range and sense of dynamics get in the way of her message. There’s no ambiguity in the lyrical content—these are songs of praise and inspiration, filled with yearning and bedrock belief. Producers David Garcia and Rob Graves anchor these tracks with throbbing, insistent grooves that give Clarkson plenty of room to emote and soar. “Sing,” “What Are You Afraid Of," and the title tune are joyful declarations of faith that ride electronica-tinged pop beats. The album’s ballads are even better, ranging from the fervent declaration of “Middle of It All” to the soul-deep questioning of “Not Real Yet.” “Like Jesus Loves” is a passionate portrait of the Savior that bids to become a modern worship standard.

Kerrie Roberts [Time for the Show]

kevindavis_nrt,

Kerrie's vocals are strong and pure and musically and lyrically her album is brilliant. I feel like I'm eavesdropping on Kerrie's prayer time during many of the songs and I start praying with her. This I one of my favorite albums of the year. Kerrie Roberts is my choice as "the voice" in Christian music. This is a five star "Masterpiece" that brings me closer to God.

It's time for the show..Amazing!!

crcollier80,

Kerrie Roberts has a gift like no other! Her large voice, beautiful, angelic and amazing is one good reason alone to purchase this album.. Another great reason is "time for the show" is incredible! Love it, every single song is like a story we all can relate to. Being a Christian can be a challenge sometimes but Kerrie reminds us all to keep our eyes, heart and soul on God!

About Kerrie Roberts

Florida-born faith pop singer, songwriter, and pianist Kerrie Roberts mixes secular issues with praise & worship themes, and, at her best, manages to merge them seamlessly into positive and very hummable tunes that stand all on their own. Born January 1, 1985 in Miami, Florida, Roberts was the daughter of a pastor and a choir director, and she was already singing in her mother’s choir by the time she was five years old, standing on a milk crate in order to be seen. Surrounded by the music of her parent’s church, she learned to play piano, and armed with a strong and confident voice, she was soon leading her own worship music sessions. She began writing her own songs when she entered high school, and even performed one of them at her own graduation, before attending the University of Miami, where she earned a degree in studio music and jazz vocal performance. Intent on a professional career as a musician, she continued to work on her songwriting, performed wherever she could locally while supporting herself as an elementary-school teacher and as an accountant, and even landed a tour as a background singer for Engelbert Humperdinck. She independently released a single track in 2005, “It Is Well with Me.” In 2008, Roberts moved to New York, taking a desk job while pursuing her singing career at night, waiting for just the right offer. She finally found it with Provident Music/Reunion Records, which released her well-crafted debut album, the self-titled Kerrie Roberts, in the summer of 2010. ~ Steve Leggett
