At the tender age of 14, Stacie Orrico is poised to become an influential voice of her generation; her debut release Genuine not only unveils a dazzling voice, but it radiates her generation's slick, urban pop cool. Discovered at a Christian artist seminar in 1998, Stacie was signed to Forefront Records at age 12 and has been working with industry heads, fashioning a career since. The songs on this project speak honestly and practically to Stacie's peer group about issues of Christian living, and its urban flair fits right into the mix of mainstream radio. Competing side by side with the likes of Britney Spears, Stacie's first single, the groove-heavy "Don't Look at Me," points to Christ as the only true example of perfection and virtue. This infusion of God's truth into today's urban pop brings a refreshing perspective. --Israel Button

When Stacie Orrico entered my musical palette, I was forever changed. At last, here was a fresh, young singer with an amazing voice and a musical sound that was exactly what I wanted to hear. Although my tastes have dramatically changed over the years, Orrico's debut album of silky-smooth R&B grooves and pop anthems that rivals the best teen pop of the day continues to make its way to my CD player from time to time.
The first impact Orrico makes is her voice. It is amazingly strong and assured for a then 14-year old, with a bold, gospel-like vibrato that fits well with the soulful production. Songs like "Ride" and "With A Little Faith" are cookout-friendly jams, while "So Pray" and "Genuine," are certain to induce feet-tapping from the most fickle of listeners. Coupled with clean, spiritual lyrics that are parent-approved, Stacie Orrico's "Genuine" is a must-have.

I have been listening to this for a while now. I seem to be growing out of it. My first concert was a Stacie Orrico concert. I was 7. (I'm now 12.) I don't seem to like her as much anymore, but I still think she has got major talent. Bring up the age level, like she did in "Stuck," and I think we'd have a winner. Praise God!
