Various – ‘The Passion-New Orleans’ album review

Chris Daughtry, CCM Magazine - imageThe soundtrack to FOX’s recent live broadcast of The Passion is filled with inspiring contributions from Yolanda Adams, Trisha Yearwood, Seal, Chris Daughtry and Michael W. Smith, plus other top Christian and mainstream pop stars from the familiar cast. Highlights include Yearwood’s gospel-infused reworking of Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love,” Jencarlos’ chilling rendering of Creed’s “With Arms Wide Open” and the full cast’s jubilant cover of Celine Dion’s “Love Can Move Mountains.” But more important than simply the star power is the music’s ability to convey this vital Biblical story of Christ’s death and resurrection to the masses.
