Daniel Johnson wants action and not just singing in his album. | Posted March 28, 2014
"And we you sing it, Lord sing it through me / Have Your way." sings Daniel Johnson on "Have Your Way,” off his new album, Go.

Many are familiar with Daniel Johnson from being the vocal leader and arranger of Israel Houghton's New Breed. Others will remember him as the teenager leading "Pray" by Andrae Crouch. 

Gifted as a vocalist, Daniel has become more rounded by his time with Israel and New Breed and being a worship leader. This husband and father of two is a great example of what servanthood looks like and not leaving his foundation for his own thing. He has served in New Breed with Israel Houghton since 2002. His freshman release, You Make Me was a solid offering. Nevertheless, we tend to really catch the Daniel in his "element" in a live recording. Go is a live album that will have many screaming, "It's about time!”  With the E One Distribution behind him, Daniel is ready to take the world by storm!

Daniel is known for his killer vocal arrangements and this album has that, but he makes sure to have some songs for the local church worship teams. Case in point, the song “Best Thing.” This one is a fun sing-along that will be a highlight for churches. It's one of those songs to jump to and having people sing about Jesus being the best thing in life is something to jump about. Yep, it is worship team ready. 

"Never Alone," draws from Hebrews 13:5 which says, "I will never leave you nor will I forsake you." This song has so many layers to it musically. Featuring prominent horns throughout, it starts off with a reggae flavor with a hint of "The Longest Time" by Billy Joel. Then it morphs into a 1960s beach party and then it ends with a vocal arrangement that will have singers scratching their heads in amazement. 

Title track, “Go,” is straightforward and serves as a reminder to all  Christians of our mission: to bring the message of Christ and His hope and love to this world. It’s simple, but very needed in this day and age where more and more are shunning and/or throwing stones at Christianity. Daniel exclaims at the song's end, "We gotta keep Jesus here!” This is a ballad with much potency. 

Ear-catching vocal harmonies are melded with the the sound of a nice organ as Daniel and the crew sing about being at home in God's presence on "Where I Belong,” which flows nicely to "God's Presence." "I'll Go" is a very fitting finale for this album. He has already challenged people with "Go,” and now he tells God that he will take up his cross and will take this message to the masses. 

Closing Thoughts:
Go is an album that can be bought in its entirety without buyer's regret of wishing that you only bought a few tracks. I cannot wait to hear or hear about different churches learning material from this album. It's an experience more than an album. It's like a good book that pulls you in and you do not want to put it down.
