Great cover of the classic gospel standard, updated for the 90's. Has an interesting hybrid of new jack, 2 step and ragga elements but still overall maintains the traditional gospel flavour, complete with backing gospel choir. What could have become an inappropriate screaming diva house jam is instead a more mellow, yet consistent groove with understated but powerful vocals that reminds you why you liked the song in the first place.
