I've been listening to this over and over and over again. I normally like hard rock, but this grew on me. I was trying to find Christian music I liked, and I've been listening to nothing else for over a week.
Heaven sent May 22, 2002
I had the extreme privelege of attending a church service in Murfreesboro, TN a few weeks ago where the Katinas actually performed for us. These guys are amazing, talented, gifted performers and servants of the Lord-not to mention extremely cute! I am so grateful that I had the chance to experience these guys in person and it was something that I'll never forget. I can't wait to get all their CD's! May the Lord Bless you and keep you...

I've seen these guys in concert, have listened to all of their English speaking albums and have heard their testimony. I believe they do have a calling from God on their lives. In fact their whole family does.
The Katina brother's father served in the Marines in Vietnam and came home from the war an alcoholic. One Wednesday night in 1971, their father accepted salvation and their whole family was healed. Eight years later he began to pastor a church in Samoa where he would raise his children to be leaders.
Check out their labels' web site in order to get a little better feel for them. Read their liner notes. Who are they thanking?
It's a rarity, even for some Christian artists, to stop a show and give thanks to our Heavenly Father, or minister to the audience with their testimonies and statement of faith. They're not the typical band who will run for the bus at the end of their shows. They stay after the show in order to minister a word of encouragement or offer prayer. It's good to see that the Katina brothers have this commitment and passion for God and the Body.
I believe they are a part of a movement which Fred Hammond has called "the new season of music". The Katinas will be complete once they do praise and worship music.
"Destiny" made me write this. Feb 6, 2002
My theory on these guys is that they are not really Christian. They are heathens trying to make the religion look bad by putting out bland, soulless funk-lite and warbling smug, simplistic lyrics that are shallower than Jerry Lee Lewis' gene pool. The contemporary Christian scene needs more charisma, creativity and humor if it's going to reach people. The Katinas come up short on all three counts; they need to listen to that still, small voice and think carefully about whether music is really their calling.
Different in a Good Way Oct 18, 2001
This album had more of a pop sound than their Gotee debut, but the sound is still addictive. My favorites are "Thank You" (a wonderful worship song), "My Samoa,""Believe,""Who Do You Love," and "It's Real." I don't think any sincere person can listen to Destiny without being spiritually touched.
