What Reviewers are saying:
Chelsea Harmon of Inside Connection "Good Morning Jehovah would raise many hands in the Baptist church. While religiously charged, this song has the potential to become a mainstream household name. "It Shall Not Always Be Like This incorporates a down south country sound behind her positive message. Yvonne Perkins is only steps from success. Read the entire review at www.insidecx.com/reviews/sonic/sonic2.html.
Dale Kawashima founder of www.songwriteruniverse re: "God Wants to be loved" fairly well crafted song and demo with some nice elements. Favorite feature phase "God wants to be loved, just like you; melody on this phrase is excellent.
Jay Hervey industry professional reviewer at www.makeastar.com re: God Wants to be loved " writes the music itself is great, the construction is perfect, this song has a certain beauty of its own. "I listen to this song repeatedly, until my batteries ran out on my player".
Jay Hervey re: I Crown You
The music is very good. Actually it has that old time religion feeling to it that I grew up with listening to.
Orphaneddie professional reviewer at www.makeastar.com re: "Good Morning Jehovah" this is a really nice melody, both of the verse, chorus and bridge. Your melody conjures up some of the great gospel hits like "Oh Happy Day
Orphaneddie (professional reviewer at www.makeastar.com) re: It Shall Not Always Be
I think this is the best recording I've heard from you so far. It's an ideal song demo, presentable to any name group in gospel.

Ms. Perkins reports that her songs are birthed out of her daily meditation time, tests, trials and victories. She is a member of Monument of Faith Church (world renown pastor, Apostle Richard D. Henton) in Chicago, Ill. She attributes her love for God to the example set by her mother, Mrs. Mamie Marshall. Ms. Perkins has been married for 27 years, has 2 adult sons and 2 granddaughters. She retired from Dept. Children & Fam Svc. after 28 years and is now employed as a Clinical Therapist for the mentally ill. She is a LPC, received BA in Human Svc, and MA in counseling from Chicago State Univ. Ms. Perkins's vision is that her music will be recorded by anointed, consecrated recording artists in the near future and that God will be glorified in all of her endeavors.
