Item Description...
Since their formation in the 90?s, this vocal group of sisters has released four projects and received multiple nominations for Grammy, Stellar and Dove Awards.

Their latest project, Testimony, was produced by and features the irresistible songwriting
of Fred Jerkins III (Destiny's Child, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston) and LaShawn Daniels (Destiny's Child, Brandy, Michael Jackson). These infectious songs transcend musical boundaries with masterful segues from R&B to pop to contemporary Gospel.

Testimony showcases Virtue's signature harmonies and worshipful emotive style with club-savvy, groove-driven songs. Their authentic message is evident as they set out to seize the music scene and move into the greatness of their calling.

Good Gospel!!  Jan 20, 2007
I see that Virtue has been around for quite some time but I'm new to their music and must say that by far I really enjoy it. It really has the R&B and at the same time good Godly praise to it. I truely recommend it for a first time buyer of Virtue.
Virtue Get the Darkchild Treatment on Testimony  Dec 13, 2006
I'm not sure how to characterize this new Virtue album. They certainly got the Darkchild treatment on this outing, for better or for worse.

Darkchild is okay, but their songs always have an over-produced, tin can, electronic, synth sound, which can get old fast. One song here and there on an artist's album is okay, but for a whole album to sound this way is just over-the-top. I love Virtue, but often times on this album they sound like they are beating the music back with a stick. Other times they sound a bit shrill as they sing over the synthetic bleeps and claps. Jerkins's music (either Rodney's or Freddie's) can deluge the vocalist who is trying to sing over such overbearing arrangements.

Overall, I don't think there are enough tight harmonies on this album, which were the trademarks of Virtue's first two albums. Even if their material was not that good, their harmonies always made up for it. The Trotter sisters, Ebony, Karima, and Heather, have beautiful and powerful voices to start with, so why mess it up by computerizing their vocals only to make them sound like those new-school R&B chicks that can't carry a tune in a bucket?

The crunk-n-b flavored "123 Praise" f/T-Bone just missed being a favorite, because the song goes on a little too long and languishes at the end with Karima's attempts to find various ways of singing "1-2-3 Praise!" She starts out with "1-2-that's-2, 2-2-that's-3," tries "3-2-1 Praise!" and then finally gives us a Spanish lesson and calls it a day.

Compared to their previous efforts, I rank this album behind Free, which to me was their breakthrough album as far as vocal maturity and expression. Testimony is contemporary to be sure. It's not as worshipful as their other work, but it certainly may catapult them into the forefront of the ever progressing contemporary gospel music industry.

***And on a side note, I'm just not feeling the cover art either. The stained glass look and the unsmiling faces are not working for me...

Favorite Picks:
"Testimony" Ebony sings the chorus with a light airy vocal quality. Very nice.
"The Sky Is The Limit" Contains the same chorus lyrics as Kiki's "Have What You Want"
"Thank You Jesus" Reminds me of an R. Kelly joint.
"Fall Again" Beautiful lead piano.
"Nothing Ever Mattered" A clumsy love song, but kind of cute.

Testimony is the sixth release for Virtue  Oct 6, 2006
Testimony is the sixth release for Virtue, following a maternity break for two of the three sisters. Having been around since 1994, this outfit has moved a long way on from their New Jill Swing beginnings. And, rest assured, Testimony exudes the sonic and spiritual strength and maturity that such longevity should bring.

It all kicks off pleasantly enough with the pacy shuffle of `Follow Me'. The title track, `The Sky is the Limit' and `Thank You Jesus' is a la Destiny's Child (though musically heavier/busier and vocally they are no Destiny's Child!). Generally Testimony's production is sound, an up-to date vibe skillfully executed by musicians (keyboard/piano work is excellent) though I wish the vocals could have stood out a little more in some tracks.

The outstanding `Give Him The Praises', `Praises To You' and the perfectly spacious `Fall Again' are doubtlessly the ones that will make it into your mp3 favourites folder - and stay there for a while. Here the sisters show this is the sound they are comfortable with. Also the worship tracks are genuine, easy to sing while retaining the modern gospel touch.

Unfortunately Testimony includes a couple of questionable album-fillers; `123-Praise!' comes across as a genre too far beyond their comfort zone and the trad-gospel studio-contrived `Get Up' is an unnecessary obstruction to the flow of the album. But those niggles aside Testimony is solid enough to merit a space on your CD tower (remember those!).
Virtue's Best Album, and I thought the last one was good!  Sep 8, 2006
Excellent album! This is just the kind of album I like. It clearly speaks about Jesus, but the musical arrangements are modern and lean more towards R & B. I'm listening to it right now. I actually got fixated on Tack # 1. I had to put it on repeat. I would strongly recommend investing in this album. As for me, Virtue is now officially my favorite Female Gospel Group. Fortitude wins out for Best Male Gospel Group.
Contemporary Praise and Worship  Sep 5, 2006
Well, let me first start off by saying that I think this is Virtue's best CD. It's like a contempory praise and worship album. It has something for the young and mature in Christ and for the young and old in age.

I love the song "123 Praise!" that exhorts you to praise the Lord. I love the beat for the song. Then I like "Thank You Jesus" because of the creativity when it starts off with the phone conversation. I loved the way they mixed the conversation into the music.

I even like the song "Get Up". It's an old school type of song, but it's good. It gets you clapping and wanting to "get up" to praise the Lord. I can tell they had some fun with this song, especially when the lead singer told the other singer to hold a long high note until she tells her to stop. Then the other singer started singing but when she stopped, the lead singer said "...I didn't say let it go!" I thought that was funny.

Then on the next track, which is called "Praises to You", flows into a genuine worship song with Martha Munizzi with a reprise to follow it. This was the song that made this a perfect album for me, because I love true worship music. I'm sure a lot of Christians that are maturing would probably like this one. Then they do another nice worship song called "Holy Holy" to keep it going.

All the songs on the albums are good, I like the song "Down With It". It's a fun song to play in the car and to keep me going and focused on Christ at work.

The new Dark Child Gospel label along with Integrity Gospel did a good job on this album. I'm glad Virtue decided to keep working with Uncle Freddy, because this album is truly wonderful for contemporary gospel.
