Olivia Sonia’s debut EP, Victory In Christ Jesus, comes out of the gate strong with “Victory,” declaring the budding artist’s mighty pipes and vocal control. It’s not like she’s new to this game, as Olivia’s New York upbringing has given her access to enjoy opportunities like joining forces with Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, among others. Her talents audibly go beyond the regional, however—accompanied with the funk-and-soul of the opening track, to the heartfelt gospel worship-ballad, “Remain In Me”—we won’t be surprised to hear and see more from her on national stages in no time. Fans that tend to lean toward a more pop-appeal will enjoy Olivia’s Beyonce-tinged timbre, especially when she reaches for a higher range on the first two songs. This EP has it all, with the exception of more than just three tracks—so, be on the lookout for this next gospel music star, and for more original music soon.
