  • Jennifer Hudson "JHUD" Album Review

    It's a tell-tale sign something's seriously wrong with our current state of pop music when artists have to constantly harken back to the past to borrow the sounds of bygone eras.

This is because by nature we are adverse to risk; and to throw ourselves into the mercy of the Almighty God in being God and others focused is incongruent to our sinful core. Yet, on their sophomore release for KING & COUNTRY not only show us vis-à-vis these newly recorded 14 new songs how such an assignment is possible, but we can also do it in joyful abandon. Read More
