I’m a member of the Family Christian Bloggers and they provided me with a free copy of Jason Crabb: “Through The Fire” for this review.
Gospel singer, Jason Crabb is back with a brand new album. “Through The Fire” that features some of his biggest hits. He was a member of the Crabb Family before they retired. He won a Grammy award in 2010 for his self-entitled album for Best Southern/Country/Bluegrass Gospel album. His album was also nominated for a Dove Award.
One of my favorite songs on the album is entitled, “Somebody Like Me” because this one describes a story of a drunk man entering the church and he is needing help and love. The church isn’t moving off their pew to reach out to him and show him the love of Christ. Jason asked the important question who will be that somebody. He performs this song as anthem to believers to be that somebody. I liked how this song had such a powerful message that Christians need to reminded of daily. We don’t have to be afraid to step out and be a friend to someone who is in need of a true friend. I liked how the choir in the background chorus gave this song a Heavenly sound to the track. Another track, I also liked was the hymns medley (The Everlasting Arms/The Meeting in the Air/ I’ll Fly Away) Live because this one is a true Gospel track and it reminded me of the church I grew up in and we would sing these songs to glorify God and to remind us of the Heaven that awakes us. Another favorite is the title track, “Through the Fire” because this one is meant to encourage believers to hold on to Jesus when life circumstances attempt to take us under and we must always remember that God will take us through the fiery storms we encounter. I also liked the track, “Love Is Stronger” because this one describes how when we go through a difficult trial, it’s critical to reminisce that love is stronger and it will bring us through. My favorite song one the album would be, “Give”. I have heard the song before sung by country artist, LeAnn Rimes. I liked Jason’s version a little more because it has more of a beat and the tempo is increased. This one reminds us in order to get love we must give it and if we want to be forgiven, we must also forgive the people who have hurt us.
The whole album is filled with uplifting songs that will inspire and resonate with believers and nonbelievers and make an impact on their lives. This is the very first album I have listened to by Jason Crabb and I will definitely be checking out his other albums. I am now a fan! I liked how the album had some upbeat tempo songs as well as soulful slower songs. I also liked how it had some live versions of some of the songs to enhance the album. Jason Crabb has amazing vocal capabilities and you can tell he means every word he is singing. If you’re looking for a new gospel/country album, then check this one out!
