My Soul Sings is Delirious’ first wave in a yearlong goodbye. Though the band is scheduled to play a few more concerts, it will officially bid farewell at the end of 2009. As a tribute to the industry-changing five-piece, this parting CD/DVD takes a musical walk down memory lane as Delirious hopscotches through chart-topping hits from their 15-year career. Recorded live in Bogota, Colombia, in front of 12,000 lively fans, My Soul Sings features early year favorites such as “History Maker,” “Deeper” and “Bliss” combined with songs from the band’s middle years such as “Rain Down” and congregational favorite “Majesty.” Although newer songs on this 14-track album were previously covered on Kingdom of Comfort and include “Kingdom of Comfort,” “Break the Silence” and title track, “My Soul Sings,” their inclusion highlights the group’s dedication to social justice and ministry. Longtime fans might need to have a tissue handy as they spin this pioneering band’s farewell recording. But listeners of all ages will enjoy hearing again these greatest hits while reminiscing over what this band has done in both worship music and ministry circles. Click here to purchase this CD/DVD.
