Unequivocally Her Best Jul 17, 2004
This little concert on a CD is spectacular in every concept, and on every track. I'm not saying that because she recorded in DC, nor because of the gifted musicians, background singers, or choir that was in attendance. I say this because she took an already successful album and did the one thing that some artists can't do, MAKE A VIABLE LIVE ALBUM out of it. Not only that, but I really wasn't a fan of her music prior to this. Praises be to God for the annointing and talent he bestowed on her and the staff.
For many years, "The Battle is the Lord's" was her signature piece. After hearing this LIVE album, all of the tracks were of that caliber. "In the Midst of It All" is my personal favorite though, as some songs transcend lyrics. You can definitely hear a spirit in this song. "Ye of Little Faith" is also fantastic.
Rather than write any more review for you to read, if you haven't bought this CD, BUY IT TODAY! You will be blessed.
P.S., Kudos to the EASTERN HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR (DC) for their participation in this.

Finally, one of Gospel Music's greatest performers does a live album that does her justice! Like her "Live In Washington" album, Yolanda's back in Washington again, not doing original material but mostly songs from her 1999 smash "Mountain High... Valley Low". That album of all studio tracks was hot but left her die hard fans still wanting to hear her live. So here it is. The album starts off in the studio with a remake of R. Kelly's hit "I Believe I Can Fly", produced by Shep Crawford [Tamia, Kelly Price], in which she duets with Gerald Levert. Now I must admit that the song is a little on the played out side but I did like what they added to it. Then the live show starts out with the high energy "Already Alright" and continues into "Continual Praise". It slows down into the sweet, "Fragile Heart", which she dedicated to a friend of hers that passed on. Then there's the beautiful live version of "What About The Children?", much better than the original studio version. Next there's the new track of the album the salsa tinged "Ye Of Little Faith", this song is hot, especially when Yolanda starts singing it in Spanish. Then the track that everyone went out and bought this album for "Open My Heart", the song that Yolanda has captivated audiences with for the past year, finally live! But I must admit that I liked the way she sung it the last time she was on It's Showtime At The Apollo better. After that is the Richard Smallwood penned "That Name" and the rousing "In The Midst Of It All". To end the album is Yolanda's high energy first single from "Mountain High...", "Yeah" and the live version of "I Believe I Can Fly". This mix of classic Yolanda songs old and new make this album indeed, an experience.
Great CD Jun 5, 2003
I really did enjoy this CD which is filled with songs from her prior CDs with Elektra. There is also a surprise song on there that wasn't released on her other CDs and it's really good. It has a mexican style beat to it.
I liked this CD because the musicians and Yolanda changed up the tempo of the songs which provided a new flavor, and she of course, blew down the house with her anointed, strong voice.
Yolanda does so well with live tapings that I can't wait for her to come out with another one.
Although you could tell at times throughout the concert that she was losing her voice a little bit, it's still worth buying the CD. You will not be disappointed.
Yolanda - keep doing what you're doing and don't do anything to compromise with the world. Stay connected to God and he will take you even higher. My prayers are with you always.
The experience - What more can I say Mar 3, 2003
This album is amazing, the diversity of the music ranging from latin to pure soul has you swaying in your armchair. The message in each of the songs really comes over and touches every part of your being.
It is awesome how God is using this lady, her vocal cords are ripe as she belts out each track. A favourite track of mine is 'open my heart' and I have recommended it to my friends who are going through wilderness experiences. This song is a wilderness experience song it is so inspiring and comforting, It speaks of challenges and asks God for help in facing them.
Best of all because it is a live recording you get a different flavour that is not on the original recordings, it is as though you are there participating in an act of worship talking to God in your own special way. The mixture of songs and sounds, each one penetrating deep into the soul, healing the hurts and redirecting your paths. This is one that you can put on repeat and play all the tracks over and over again.
