Victory World Music- ‘Shake Heaven’ Review
By C.W. Ross
Victory World Church started out in 1990 with just six people meeting in a daycare in Doraville, GA. with a vision to have a multi-culture church. Fast forward to today with over 10,000 members from 105 different nations that meet weekly at three different campuses.
Now comes Victory World Music lead by Grammy nominated artist Montell Jordan and the church’s worship team. You might know Jordan from his mainstream r&b hit songs, “This is How We do It” and “Let’s Ride.”
Jordan either wrote or co-wrote all of the songs found on ‘Shake Heaven’ along with overseeing the production side of the recording process.
‘Shake Heaven’ is a collection of songs that blend worship, soul, and an Urban sound that should appeal to both Christian and mainstream audiences.
Things get off to a strong start with the up tempo club sounding, “Yes You Are (Yeshua).” The track deals with the freeing power that comes from the Lord. The track also features vocals from Dove nominated artist, Beckah Shae. You’ll also find her vocals on, the releases title track, “Shake Heaven.”
Other highlight tracks include, “The One”, that features guest vocals from Martha Munizzi, “Lifter of My Head” and the acoustic worship track, “These Hands”, that deals with all of our sins that Jesus took to the cross and His nail driven hands.
Review Takeaway: Thanks to the many talents of Montell Jordan even though this is the debut release from Victory World Music it has a seasoned sound often found on 4th or 5th time around musical projects.
