Quote: "God has given Travis what I believe is a gift of favor with audiences and congregations. His approach permeates every denominational wall. His warm yet powerful style engages even the most resistant group into irresistible worship."-conference speaker Beth Moore
FYI: Cottrell has written hits for the likes of Larnelle Harris ("It's Only Thunder") and connected with students through his Waiters: A Youth Musical about Waiting on the Lord, which became a bestseller.
Bottom Line: Unashamed Love is a compelling debut, not only because of Cottrell's vocal gift, described as possessing "tenderness...joy...and awesome strength," but because of the authenticity of his songwriting. Even if you don't typically appreciate the 'live worship' feel, you'll be inspired and moved by the spirit here.
Features: Thirteen encouraging songs like "Let The Praises Ring," "The Power Of Your Love," 'and the title track "Unashamed Love" among others.
