You Can Make It (eOne Music)
by Bryan Popin
FOR FANS OF: Israel Houghton, Tamela Mann, Martha Munizzi
Rating: 4 Stars
A singer-songwriter-musician veteran with song cuts by ‘NSYNC, collaborations with Chaka Khan and now highprofile production and guest slots (Tamela Mann, Martha Munizzi) on his national debut, Popin could easily captain a relevant mainstream gig. Instead the burgeoning worship leader harnesses a corporate-leaning set list with finely tuned gospel/R&B musical skills, polished pop production and accessible— but convicted—lyrics. Popin’s debut is a uniquely attractive package start to finish.
