A nice piece of contemporary R&B gospel from Karen Clark-Sheard’s 2nd album released in 2002. Karen was of the members of the FABULOUS Clark Sisters from Detroit Michigan.
In 2001 Karen was faced with a life-threatening crisis when a blood vessel burst during a scheduled hernia surgery. Her doctors only gave her a 2% chance of survival due to her complications. After the blood clot was surgically removed, Karen fell into a coma. The coma lasted three and a half weeks, but she made a miraculous recovery. Despite citing hernia surgery, fans continue to speculate that she had undergone a gastric bypass operation which led to the complications of hernia and brain aneurysm because after the ordeal Sheard returned in 2001 looking 1/3 of her size.
Though the release performed well on the charts and Karen’s vocals were in excellent form, the slick contemporary R&B production was not openly embraced by her core audience of traditional gospel music listeners.
