With their debut album, The Mohabir Sisters proved that contemporary gospel doesn’t have to sound like second rate R&B. The album neither loses its cutting edge tempo nor the lyrical message of hope and appreciation in the midst of a broken world. Through driving tempos, haunting vocal performances and even calypso influences, the girls deliver a rich mix of sounds and emotions with their vocals bouncing off of vibrant music generated by real musicians and not just computer programmers.
Dedicating the album to their late father Philip Mohabir, the girls embarked on the project in late 2005 having decided to undertake a project that would both honour the man who had been such a support and influence in their lives and also raise money for one of the many projects he pioneered and supported in his country of birth, Guyana. The album is also dedicated to one of the girls – Anne, who sadly, and unexpectedly, died shortly before the album’s release. The richness of her voice lives on in the wonderful “Shine On Me”. When listening to the album, the ladies hope that you will ‘feel the power’ of The Mohabir Sisters’ music and message.
