Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis

Live in Memphis (EPM Music Group)

FOR FANS OF: James Fortune, William Murphy, J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise

3 Stars

 

On their national debut, Tharpe and his youthful backing crew energetically bridge the gap between gospel’s traditional choir discography and new-wave urban grooves. Part Saturday night soul, part Sunday morning church, Live celebrates the broad musical genre with specific verses of praise and thanksgiving to Jesus. Tharpe has a secure up-and-coming slot in gospel.
