Champion  (Shae Shoc Records)
by Beckah Shae

FOR FANS OF: Group 1 Crew, Rihanna, Capital Kings
Rating: 4 Stars

Dove-nominated pop star Beckah Shae doesn’t just give Christian listeners plenty of reasons to groove on her latest long player, Champion, as she could easily compete with any electronic dance music act in the mainstream. Aside from being a powerhouse vocalist and sturdy songwriter, the project benefits from an astounding list of collaborators (Israel Houghton, Crystal Lewis, T-Bone, Eric Dawkins, Canon, Crystal Nicole, her producer/ hubby Jack Shocklee). Make no mistake, though, the charismatic Shae is at the center of this masterpiece.
