The Proverbs just recently celebrated 50 years of music ministry. On their brand new album GOOD THINGS, they have really 'knocked it out of the park' so to speak! This is a great follow-up to SAY AMEN. It's somewhat hard to categorize the musical styles found on GOOD THINGS. I would say there is Southern Gospel, soulful jazz pop, and easy listening represented here. Songwriters include Wayne Haun, Sonya Isaacs, Justin Wells, Gerald Crabb, Rachel McCutcheon, and Scotty Inman. Themes presented include: having a positive attitude during the hard times in life, trusting in God's faithfulness to us, dedicating oneself to God, the majesty of Christ, and anticipating heaven. This is an album that will greatly encourage you in your Christian faith walk and it is one you will want to listen to time and again. If you liked Natasha Daw's lead on last album's 'I Pray', you will like her taking the lead on 'Here's My Everything' here. She is a wonderful young lady who has Down's and loves Jesus Christ. This is my ninth Proverbs cd. I'm rating GOOD THINGS 95%. To pick up your copy visit www.theproverbs.com and click on 'Contact Us'. You can also connect with the group on Facebook. They also have a Christmas cd you can order. I hope to pick up more of their back catalogue in the future.
