by: Trin-I-Tee 5:7
Trin-I-Tee 5:7 have always skillfully bridged the worlds of gospel and mainstream contemporary R&B by applying their slinky, TLC-like sound to messages of Christian faith. T57 is their most successful synthesis of the two genres to date. Produced by Walter Millsap, who helped craft the sounds of Alicia Keyes and Yolanda Adams, T57 has all the polish and glamour of most radio-tailored R&B. But the members of Trin-I-Tee 5:7 haven't abandoned their first love. "Listen," "I Will Lift," and "I Need You" are among the album highlights that express the trio's devotion to Jesus.
