Customer Review

on 24 April 2005
I saw the film while i was in America not so long ago it's one of the most up-lifting and heartbreaking movies made of this particular genre. The soundtrack is very beautiful with new songs from India.Arie, Monica, Angie Stone, Tamia & Heather Headley.
1. Purify Me (India.Arie) - The song that's promoting the soundtrack at the moment i havent seen the video yet but i can't wait to see it. It's one of India's best songs to date! its catchy and just simply beautiful 10/10
2.Sick & Tired (Monica) - Your usual run-of-the-mill r&b song not much special about it but its an enjoyable song her voice has improved but i just think they should have given this song to Toni Braxton or someone like that 8/10
3.Different Directions (Angie Stone) - A really great soul song by Angie its a really nice down-tempo song but it seems like it was left off "Mahogany Soul" but im really do enjoy it and is worth listening to 10/10
4.Things I've Collected (Tamia) - One of my favourite songs on the soundtrack it's a beautifully sad ballad. Tamia is one of the best R&B singers out there i feel this song really compliments her voice i hope this is on her new album 10/10
5.I Wanna Swing (Cheryl Pepsi-Riley) - Had know idea who she was until i got the soundtrack it brings the tempo up slightly with this old jazz cafe sounding song its really cool it just makes u wanna dance around ur place :) 10/10
6.I Wanna Love Again (Natalie Cole) - Another of my favourite songs its very old school maybe something Nina Simone would sing i play this song reminds me of a particular part of the film. She had a really nice voice 10/10
7.Fallen In Love (Darlene McCoy) - WHO IS SHE! she's wonderful her voice is on the same lines of India.Arie its an up-tempo love song its makes you feel good its a nice gospel-esque song 10/10
8.Heather Headley (Ain't It Funny) - This woman is really great the song goes back to the main theme of the soundtrack "Heartbreak", Heather gives a good performance i enjoy listening to her but she needs a new albums, come on Heathers its been 3 years we need a new album! :) 10/10
9.One Of Us (Cheryl Pepsi-Riley) - The second and last track from Cheryl its the cover of Joan Osbourne's classic given it a church feel to it.I do prefer Joan's version but this isnt a bad version 9/10
10.I Wanna Be Free (Patti Labelle) - Who doesn't love this woman shes got such a great voice, But the song isn't all that theres not much motivation in the song but its nice 7/10
11.Father Can You Hear Me (Tamela Mann) - Gospel singer Tamela delievers a great song it features Kitra Williams-White & Curtis Blake who are also great gospel singers but the song falls short to me cant really get into it but their voices are simply just beautiful 8/10
12.Take It To Jesus (Tamela Mann) - Great up-beat song to finish the soundtrack off makes u wannt jump around its a great positive song 10/10
Top 5
1.Purify Me - India.Arie
2.Things I've Collected - Tamia
3.Ain't It Funny - Heather Headley
4.I Wanna Love Again - Natalie Cole
5.Fallen In Love (Darlene McCoy)
Buy this if you like the artists or gospel or if you just like great music this wont dissapoint its beautiful. The film is also great when its released over here im gonna go watch it again
My title is my favourite line from the film :)
