The latest release on Jet Star's subsidiary label 'Gospel Times' is Osmond Collins' album entitled "Walk The Walk". Osmond Collins studied at City College in Harlem, New York and during that time he went into the music business with considerable success. He has extensive professional experience in music performing with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Gwen Guthrie and Rick James. This is his third album and contains some 15 inspirational songs on a backdrop of some of the most infectious riddims created by by the cream of the crop of the UK reggae scene and is recorded at Jet Star's own Cave Studios. Osmond's warm vocal delivery is very mature, rich and smooth as he gracefully sings across the solid riddims. As expected the lyrical themes on the album are pure Christian, dealing with peace, joy, mercy, grace and most of all salvation. Featured here are guest performances by Shirley Winston (Tumbling Down), Tony Rich (I Have A Friend) and his son David Collins (Father And Son). Highlights on the album are the divine tunes Sweep Over My Life, There Is A Fountain and Pastures Of Green.
"Walk The Walk" is an album filled with pure quality reggae!
