John L. Terry

This is Anointed Smooth Gospel Jazz at its best
Take some clean guitar playing,add some great lyrics, and then mix it with heartfelt vocals place them on a CD and You'll Have my favorite disc. This CD is awesome. Once I heard Won't Stop Worshipping, I Knew I would Rise and by this disc.

Frank/The Spiritual Six of Macon, Ga.

"A professional Talent"
The gospel industry is very fortunate to have a talented young man who stays true to gospel music. Your gift is truly a gift from God. As with our group, your roots are within the COGIC. Bishop Patterson and the COGIC should be one of your biggest supporters. Keep up the good work. Your musical career is just beginning.


Good product and musicianship
I happened to find this CD during a search on CDBaby and I'm not disappointed. Mr. Offard body of work is good and if you are a fan of Jonathan Butler, Dwayne Smith, George Benson, you will enjoy this release immensely.


I really enjoy listening to this album!
This album is simply exceptional! The musical arrangements along with the living word was an awesome blend. I would encourage everyone to get a copy of this cd because I haven't ever heard anything this soulful and spritual at the same time!

Edmund Brown

Smooth comforting sound.
Felton creatively uses a smooth soothing jazz to deliver a powerful message. His guitar work is hypnotic and would surely calm Saul's madness. I'm on board for the full ride.
