|Man, woman, and child will find something to vibe with on India.Arie - Testimony: Vol. 1 Life & Relationships latest CD offering. Starting off classic India Arie style she opening up with a "Loving" Bible quote which many people pray for everyday
"Oh, God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things that I can not change
The courage to change the things that I can
The wisdom to know the difference."
Obviously her prayers were answered because she goes on to deliver 15 of the most amazing songs and lyrics she has to date. Touching on subjects from broken relationship to her hair. Both sexes nursing a broken heart will jam religiously to songs like "The Heart of The Matter which is a well done remix of Don Henley classic, Good Morning, Private Party, and Wings of Forgiveness will capture your ears and assist you if you are in the need of healing. Yes it has it's fair share of Neo Soul introspective style "I Will Survive" anthems.
No worries it jams forward to touch other topics such as being thankful and conscious on songs like Summer. This is an album you can just let play or send to your ex to help with forgiveness. In a world where Lauryn Hill hasn't released a record in years and radio is dominated by I Want To F%&* You type of songs this disc is a welcome breath of fresh air.
