New Music Review: “ResLife Worship: Higher”

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

reslifeThe multi-talented choir and other music artists from Resurrection Life Church in Grandville have done it again with another compelling release of lively praise music titled "ResLife Worship: Higher."

Church choir leaders Ken Reynolds and Jonathan Cordero (both associate pastors for worship) have assembled a wonderful collection of songs recorded live that will be profitable for wide church use.

Cordero handles most of the lead vocals on the songs, with help from several other soloists.

"Captivated" is the CD's first tune that sets the stage with its fast tempo and words of adoration addressed to directly to God.

"Til the Walls Fall Down" and "Not Afraid" are songs with similar energy bringing audience response. "All The Way is a danceable tune with a club-style beat.

A contrast comes with the soothing and serene "All To My Savior" which closes with words from the familiar hymn "I Surrender All."

Sixteen year old Jasmine Hurtardo (who releases her solo debut recording this month) is featured on "In You," a percussion-driven but reflective anthem.

Response to the new project has been noteworthy. Its first week of release, "Higher" hit the Billboard Praise & Worship chart at No. 15.

The artist performed the songs at a special church event May 31, and also featured some of them during a set at Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts in early June.
