The band is tight and the arrangement is sophisticated, and that fact is announced right in the intro, with the band playing in unison to a truly creative time signature. All the players are good, with the lead guitar shining. The lead vocal comes in after a few words of scripture, singing in a soul falsetto, a la Smokey Robinson. Unfortunately, he doesn't quite pull it off. The falsetto is pitchy and not quite sturdy enough to carry the lead, though he does have his moments of brilliance. The lyrics get lost in the band. The lead vocal would need to be mixed a little louder to avoid this, but I think it is already as loud as it can effectively go. It just ends up sounding thin. Then when the female vocals come in on the chorus, they too are pitchy, and it's even more noticeable when the band drops out and they sing a capella for a few bars. I like the hook, "Keep your head to the sky." This is a nice visual image, that goes along beautifully with the scripture the song is based on, and would actually make a really good title for the song. "God Bless You", although it is the purpose of the song, is a little too generic, and doesn't capture the song's essence as fully as "Keep your head to the sky." To sum it all up, your hearts are in the right place, and I pray God's blessings on your further efforts. I love the band and the mix. You have a lot going for you. Keep making music for the Eternal. Hope to sing with you one day, around the Throne of Glory.

This makes a gospel concert has less to do with individual songs than with galvanizing the audience. Virtuosity and showmanship are presented as evidence of faith, though they’re also hugely entertaining. This song keeps such an essence of gospel music. Great work!
