This is the second album of Los Angeles-based artist Zema. In each song, Bible-based lyrics and her calm voice produce a spiritual atmosphere. The renown Sly Dunbar and bassist Mike Irwin provide tight rhythm. Zema and her husband Zacky Bernard (of the original Twinkle Brothers) play keyboards and Alberto Fernandez puts his guitars. My favorite track is "Treasure".
