Here I Am Send Me (Live)
As prolific as her name is, I was surprised to read that this was Darlene Zschech’s first project in several years. The first in fact since 2013, which may not seem like a long time unless you consider the fact that she was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. That’s a lot on your plate aside from worrying about new music. While Zschech is at the forefront of the praise and worship genre, the new album is solid, but not ground breaking. That’s not a bad thing either. It takes a heart connection, not an entertainment thrill to worship authentically and that’s what she’s best at doing. When you consider the trials of her recent history, a song like “You Are Great,” proclaiming God’s greatness, is much more meaningful. The new project is full of such songs, “You Will Be Praised,” the emotively powerful “Emmanuel,” and the title track “Here I Am.”
