CD: Kiss of Heaven
Artist: Darlene Zschech
Label: INO Records/Sony/Epic
Quote: "When I'm writing for a congregation, I'm thinking of them, thinking 'how can I help them express corporately what is in their heart?' Whereas this is just what I want to say."—Darlene Zschech, on her solo effort
FYI: Two highlights of the album: "Everything About You," a rare love song written for her husband of 19 years, and a cover of U2's "Walk On," performed with good friend Martin Smith of Delirious.
The Bottom Line: If you want to see just how gifted this worship leader is, if you want to know what makes her tick and why she's devoted her life to the worship of God, Kiss of Heaven is about as close as you'll get to the answer. It's not for congregational use, but it's a beautiful, worshipful album about life, love and the true source of both. She's also written a companion book, The Kiss of Heaven: God's Favor to Empower Your Life Dream. You can read an excerpt from the book here.
Features: Includes a solo version of "Shout to the Lord," a new version of "Kiss of Heaven," originally recorded for The Mercy Project, U2's "Walk On," dedicated to the women of Mercy Mininstries, as well as "Pray," "Faithful," "Beautiful Savior," "Everything About You," "Promise," "Irresistable," "Heaven On Earth," "Everlasting," "Dream," "Wonderful You," and "Thank You." 14 songs in all.
