While Lightyear Music places Joye B. Moore's music in the "Gospel" category, the young vocalist prefers her own definition, "urban inspiration."
Ms. Moore draws from a background of R&B, gospel and jazz. Armed with a vibrato like none I have heard before, Joye delivers her message in a variety of styles. The album will achieve considerable acceptance by a wide audience.
The vocalist renders a fiery version of her own "Christ Is Moving" and her scatting ability is reminiscent of Annie Ross. Fans of smooth jazz and gospel will have their own particular favorites.
The versatile singer is also a fine songwriter and all tunes on this CD are her own. Samples may be heard at Lightyear's web site. Give her a listen.
