Rating: 3 Stars
Debuting her chops as the voice behind the lead single for Deitrick Haddon’s A Beautiful Soul movie soundtrack—a top 10 gospel release in 2012—the young modern gospel artist is unleashing her national LP with a full-on musical and spiritual offensive. Jam-packed with overcomer urban anthems, faithflared R&B/pop, gritty electronics, hip-hop and guests Jessica Reedy and Eric Dawkins, Adia’s wide vocal resilience spotlights a solid R&B/gospel debut with plenty of mainstream appeal.
