Power & Authority: Live in Memphis (RCA Inspiration)
by Sheri Jones-Moffett
FOR FANS OF: Karen Clark-Sheard, Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams
Rating: 3 Stars
Taking the live route for her sophomore set, the skilled soprano channels her history as a Tri-City Singer to charter a song set properly hearkening gospel music’s traditional, choir-backed past. Matching Moffett’s hypervocal prowess with crazy horn licks (“No Failure”) provides insight to her experienced musicianship, while songs like “Grace” proclaim the singersongwriter’s abiding faith convictions.
