Multiple Grammy and Dove award-winning songstress Sandi Patty is back with her latest studio album "Everlasting," which was released on September 3.
Sandi Patty has been dubbed as "The Voice" in Christian music and rightfully so. From the opening track "God and King" to the closing "The Lord's Prayer," all 14 songs on here are well-crafted. She sings them with a lot of heart and emotion.
Producer Steve Wingfield has done a brilliant job arranging this project, which deserves a great deal of praise for its simplicity.
Simon and Garfunkel would smile upon her bold version of their signature tune "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and equally stunning is "Eternal Life."
Her chart-topping hit "Another Time, Another Place" is featured on this project as a duet with Wayne Watson.
Although it is quite difficult to choose a favorite track on the CD, I am in total awe of her rendition of the Vince Gill country classic "Go Rest High on That Mountain," as it is one of my all-time favorite songs. It is so raw and authentic and it will leave her fans in goosebumps. This song alone deserves a standing ovation. Her version of "Go Rest High On That Mountain" is one of the best since Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart covered the tune as a duet with country singer Deana Carter.
With "Everlasting," Sandi Patty proves that she is a true song stylist. Her vocals on these inspirational recordings are crystalline, powerful and flawless. Along with Amy Grant's new record "How Mercy Looks From Here," Patty has released one of the best albums in the Christian music genre this year.
