Crystal Lewis 25 Album Review

Disclosure: I received the Crystal Lewis 25 CD complimentary from Family Christian in exchange for my honest review.

It’s hard to imagine that Crystal Lewis started her singing career twenty-five years ago, but her newest album 25 commemorates that fact. She shares an early memory on the inside jacket of when she was in college. She remembers opening a box of records after her first solo album was released in 1987 and jumping and screaming with her roommate. Lewis has since recorded 20 albums and stills feels the anticipation each time. It’s memories like these that help us relate and understand the person behind the rich soulful voice that brought us songs like Beauty For Ashes and People Get Ready…Jesus Is Coming.

I have been listening to this 2-disc Contemporary Christian album for the past week in the car. The songs are a mix of Lewis’ signature upbeat pop music and classic hymns. In one instance, I was tapping the steering wheel and signing along, and then belting out Amazing Grace. The music is uplifting and easy listening, and most importantly the lyrics teach scripture.

I love how both me and my kids can enjoy listening to her music, and it also has been a teaching aid. We were listening to the song You Didn’t Have To Do It, and my son asked me what did that mean. “What did Jesus not have to do,” he asked. “He didn’t have to die on the cross and save us from our sins, but He loves us so much that He did,” I answered. I guess my answer was sufficient because he started singing along to song.

My favorite song is People Get Ready…Jesus is Coming is a catchy, upbeat song that will resonate in your heart and mind all day. You will catch yourself singing the song throughout the day, but it’s OK because it will lift your mood and put a smile on your face.

You can purchase the Crystal Lewis 25 CD  or MP 3 HEREThe CD is $15.99 and the MP 3 is $9.99.
