Paul’s testimony of deliverance takes center stage with this project.  “In 1996, I had an aneurysm,” Paul shares. “I couldn’t walk or talk, and I lost my memory. I stayed in the bed maybe a year and a half. From 1996-2006 I went through all of the transitions—from the bed to the wheelchair to the walker to the cane. In June 2006, I dropped the cane!”

Production on the ten song disc is handled by the Grammy Award winning duo Blac Elvis (Beyonce, Jamie Foxx) and songwriter Harold Lilly (Alicia Keys, Beyonce).
