Tasha Cobbs’ recent live recording was a worship-filled, high energy event that will certainly deliver a sophomore album equally as captivating and powerful as her national debut, GRACE.

Produced by Vashawn Mitchell, with writing by Mike Brown; Cobbs; her mother, Bertha Cobbs; Deon Kipping; Vashawn Mitchell; Bishop William Murphy III and Vaughan Phoenix, attendees were treated to uptempo praise jams; lingering praise and worship ballads, and a dose of rock-inspired gems that showed another side of Cobbs’ artistry. Kierra Sheard and Jamie Grace were featured on two songs, and Bishop Paul Morton; Bishop William Murphy III and Brian Pierce joined Cobbs for an amazing moment that had the crowd on its feet.
Guests at the recording included Anthony Brown; Isaac Carree; James Fortune; Deon Kipping; Pastor John Gray; Preshea Hilliard; Leandria Johnson; Kevin Levar; Tasha Page-Lockhart; Jonathan Nelson; Pastor William McDowell ; Joshua Rogers and many others.
Pastor John Gray, who addressed the audience at the beginning of the recording, said “Tasha carries something that many others don’t carry…she has a gift where others feel they can access heaven when they hear her sing.”
Cobbs said, “The recording theme and focus of this project are on the intimate place, the intimate time between JESUS and the worshipper. That is the atmosphere that was created during the recording, and it is what listeners will receive when they hear the album.”
