Joshua Rogers is a talented gospel artist who, up to season seven, was known as the youngest and first male winner of the talent search show “BET’s Sunday Best” (which features great Grammy-winning artists as judges: Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams , CeCe Winans, to name a few). Returning, Joshua’s third album, takes you to church with its combination of great sounding urban gospel music and a showcase of his vocal ability. Sampling and tributes to gospel legends such as the Winans and Daryl Coley are very well done. Awesome tribute to the late Daryl Coley. Similar vocally to: 21:03. Similar musically to: Darwin Hobbs, Men of Standard. Favorite tracks: 1*,2**,5**,7*, 11*, 13*, 14*. No FCCs.|
