Theresa Pinkney Makes A Bold Musical Statement With New CD, “Me Against The World” releasing July 12, 2011
“Me Against The World” is a 15-track project filled with a mixture of urban, R&B, pop and dance styles, yet is fully gospel. The title tune and inspirational cut finds the artist singing about her dogged determination to stick with the Lord, no matter what. It’s clear that this singer will make sure that nothing will ever stop her praise. Other memorable tracks are the beautiful and sweet “Never Alone” and the mellow and ethereal-sounding “You Are”. “Silent Praise” is another jewel that doesn’t fall short in the area of inspiration. Those who have ever felt that they “didn’t have enough tongues to praise Him” will easily be able to relate to the moving track. There are many uplifting songs on this impressive debut. Although Pinkney loves each and every track on her new release, one holds a special place in her heart, “Promise”.
