'Even Me' Crystal Aikin from Sunday Best (1826 hits)

Although she knew early on as a choir director that she could minister to believers through her gift of song, Tacoma, WA's Crystal Aikin never envisioned herself standing alongside certified gospel superstars on BET and hearing Kirk Franklin announce her name as the winner of the network's first ever "American Idol"-styled gospel competition, Sunday Best.

After the gracious, bubbly emergency-room nurse won top honors, the real work began as she ironed out a label deal and sought the right songs and collaborators (Asaph Ward, Kim Burrell, Dorinda Clark-Cole, even Dre & Vidal) to convey the gifts that regaled her to her following to begin with. So, depending on who you ask, her self-titled debut either goes out of its way to provide a lil' somethin' for each spiritual phase, or it's a directionless collection of songs that showcase her powerhouse vocals, but little else... http://www.soultracks.com/crystal-aiken
