ESSENCE.com pick: “The Sound” by Mary Mary
Listening to this album you might forget its gospel, with its deep fried southern swagger and Motown-inspired pop on songs such as “God in Me” and the title track (respectively). Give it to this duo for knowing how to feed your soul while lifting your spirit and feet.
