Detroit's own Lisa Page Brooks was in the studio for over a year working on her new CD "Ready," that was release on June 4. It's the singer's first project since her 2009 CD "Strong" that featured her No. 1 smash "I Want to Say Thank You."
The 13-song set was produced by Brooks' longtime producer/husband, Michael Brooks, a founding member of the famed '80s contemporary gospel group Commissioned, and it takes its title after Brooks' jazzy remake of one of the group's 1989 fan favorites. "If you consider the state of our nation as a whole, the question 'Will you be ready when Jesus comes?' is so befitting, and thought provoking," she said.
The new album features several thought provoking moments. Brooks sings about destiny on the finger-snapping radio single "God Thing" and seeks a spiritual revolution on the acoustic "Heal the Land." There's a Caribbean vibe on "Empower Me" and a funky soulfulness on "The Wonder." She also offers her trademark "church-wrecking theatrics" on the inspiring ballad "Love Somebody Else" and the hymn "Great Is Thy Faithfulness."
The velvety alto also creates a neo-soul aura on "Going Home" and brings passion to mid-tempo favorites "More," "I Love You" and "Triumph" (which features a vocal assist from Brooks' daughter, Tasha, who also did some of the backing vocal arrangements for the set). Brooks' son Justin also contributed by co-producing the soul-stirring ballad "Better Than Life," Brooks' first ever composition. "My son has his own style but he knows my style and made sure I was comfortable," she said.
Brooks was a founding member of the Grammy Award nominated '80s quartet Witness that created contemporary gospel hits such as "Clap Your Hands" and "Standard." She launched a solo career in the late '90s and has enjoyed radio hits such as "God is Good," "Waiting" and "I Want to Say Thank You."
