This is a book that will inspire you, enlighten you as well as entertain you. Allen Bailey takes you on a journey of his life which has given me a more indepth understanding of the man, his mission and the inspiration that he breaths into the Harlem Gospel Choir and their music. If you have not heard these angelic voices you are and have done yourself a grave injustice. They bring the church to you. Mr. Bailey in motion picture form gives you his humble up bringing from the mean street of Harlem, USA and how his life experiences laid the path for his success as well as other famous celebs he has encountered from their humble beginnings. It is a book you must follow like a good intriging movie. Allen Bailey lets us all know that no matter what your situation is you have the power to change it if you believe and work hard. "Don't complain where you are today, because no doubt it is preparing you for where you need to be tomorrow."-Allen Bailey.

And, seriously have you heard the Harlem Gospel Choir sing? WOW. [...]
Review of 'Singing God's Work'2010/2/21
This is an excellent book that I could not put down after I started reading it. A true rags-to-riches story that I found entertaining and educational. I highly recommend this book as a very good read.
