Gentle Grace

Gentle Grace

by Kathie Lee Gifford

CD

Overview

Kathie Lee Gifford's first studio album in four years is a gently uplifting collection that's rooted firmly in the inspirational turf trodden by the likes of Sandi Patty and Kathy Troccoli. Soft rhythms and just the right amount of production bolster Gifford's rich vibrato, making this an easy, mood-smoothing collection-no disco beats or Pat Boone-does-heavy-metal forays here. Gifford knows her way around the Christian music world, and she ably holds court with such inspirational classics-to-be as "I Believe in You," "Finally," and "We Can Depend on His Word," all of which she co-wrote with producer Phil Sillas. "Peace" steps out from the easy-listening mold with a more upbeat tempo-one of the few tracks on Gentle Grace to do so-but as this project's title suggests, these songs are geared more toward quiet reflection and meditation than get-up-and-shout praise. Released as a companion to the CD is Gifford's book, Gentle Grace: Reflections and Scriptures on God's Gentle Grace, which offers a deeper look at the inspiration behind each song.
