What Wondrous Love Is This
We thought you might like to see some of the lovely things people from various quarters are already saying about Helen's new album. We do praise the Lord for all His goodness and mercies! We give Him all the glory!
'A Winner in every department! Songs are engaging and memorable compositions, empathy songs - the best songs of all. Highly recommended, this gal is no novice and this album is a beauty! Musically, it is mature and classy coming through with ardor, fortitude and polish.
A pop music legend among her peers, Helen is a highly motivated mover, a superior song-stylist in the Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Jo Stafford league, which is praise indeed!
This is a superior devotional P & W project recorded with class and distinction with the creative Jonathan Gooch at the production helm. With the help of solid musicianship, this is a gem of an album that features new and old repertoire set in the contemporary orchestrated worship-context. Many easy-listening sounds meet in a multi-genre fusion.
I suspect that Helen's deep faith is the essential reason for this album's existence after a long-time gap in releases. With a soundly believeable quality in her forceful crystal-clear voice, she delivers an out-of-the-ordinary, lingering excellence. Don't miss it!' Paul Davis, New Christian Music, UK.
'What Wondrous Love Is This' heralds the stylish return of Helen Shapiro with her first Gospel album for more than 12 years. Helen's Jewish roots underpin lyrics which are permeated with worship and reverence, while elements of Gospel, Jazz, Blues, Swing and Samba wrap her ever distinctive voice in a sophisticated surround. While her songs are soaked in Praise, they are delivered with both power and poise, strength and subtlety, always oozing the kind of class that has earned this celebrated singer such an international reputation.'

'Helen's voice is perfectly suited to the lovely music featured on this new album. I found the whole concept spiritually uplifting and the musicianship simply beautiful; everything was 'right on the button', straight from their hearts to mine. A recent chance meeting made me aware of this treasure - I'm very grateful.' Mark Fox, President and founder of the International Tony Bennett Appreciation Society
