In the Meantime: The Music That Tells the Story

In the Meantime: The Music That Tells the Story

by Iyanla Vanzant



This disc, comprised of passionate songs of love interwoven with words of inspiration by renowned author Iyanla Vanzant, is a must-have for those who've read her book, IN THE MEANTIME, and the perfect introductory gift for those who aren't yet familiar with the phenomenal speaker. Like the book, the music guides you through the different stages of understanding love, from "the basement" to "the attic." The illustrious vocalists featured on the CD read like a who's who of R&B and gospel music. Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin, and Nancy Jackson all make splendid contemporary gospel contributions, while Faith Evans's "Right Back Where I Started," Kelly Price's soulful rendition the Aretha Franklin classic "Ain't No Way," and a cover of Gladys Knight's "Neither One of Us" Montell Jordan and Monifah are all outstanding. Howard Hewitt's performance on the title track and Tulani Kinard's jazzy "Wherever I Am" are also both beautiful songs to be enjoyed again and again. Vanzant's interlude "Love Is Simple" is her most prophetic piece. IN THE MEANTIME: MUSIC THAT TELLS THE STORY is the perfect companion to the author's bestselling book. For those who haven't had the privilege of reading the spiritually uplifting builder of self-esteem, these wonderful selections offer melodious narratives to guide you to the full story.

A friend of mine let me borrow her CD and from the moment I heard it, I fell in love. Although I lOVE the entire CD, my favorite song is ''Neither One of Us''. The entire CD is very uplifting and inspirational! I just ordered my own copy.
