~ Notes / Reviews ~

In a single word, this release is “moving”. Guest vocalist, Michael Bolton, brings a strong and perfect sound to "Hear Me (Tears into Wine)" with his signature voice. "Be Thou Near to Me", featuring Selah, makes you feel as though God himself is right around the corner. Ginny Owens, who sings "Amazing Grace", sounds like an angel who is more than a little intimidated and in awe at the prospect of coming face to face with her Lord. As for Jim Brickman, he breathes new life into old favorites like "Holy, Holy, Holy," "How Great Thou Art" and "Joyful" with his ethereal piano presence.

While “Grace” may be a little too "easy listening/adult contemporary" for those listeners who like their music to bring them to their feet, it still has enough shining moments to deserve a listen. Think "quiet time" when your focus is not on singing along, but on feeling and connecting instead.

Brickman's instrumental arrangements are the true stars of the show here, especially with his gorgeous revision of "Ode to Joy" (here called "Joyful") and the stirring "Holy Holy Holy." It's not Brickman's finest album, but it most definitely is an enjoyable addition to his already impressive body of work.
