Anticipation by Debra Perry and Majestic Praise

Calvin alum Debra Perry and her gospel group, Majestic Praise, have given us Christian music for “grown folks.” The 17 tracks are mature, smooth, and balanced. The strongest track, “I Am Determined,” anchors the album, which is a musical journey with stops at praise and worship, psalms of reflections, and hip hop. Get on board with them.
