Kevin Vasser feat. DeWayne Woods
Malaco Records (2012)
Vasser opens the leisurely tempo number by singing with the intimate but intense passion of a man locked in the prayer room. “Lord, I’m crying out to you,” he entreats, and the background vocalists respond in empathy. DeWayne Woods joins Vasser and together they make the supplication public, reminding the listener that only the Lord “can deliver.”
Vasser is director of worship and arts at
Church in Chicago, where Rev. Charles Jenkins is pastor
and Rev. Dr. Clay Evans is pastor emeritus. Malaco anticipates a full project by Vasser this year.
