“I Need You Lord”
Gospel artist and “PK” Curtis Washington of Houston, Texas was once a member of the R&B group “Reality” and the gospel group “God’s Creation.” He is known to many as the late Gerald Levert’s unofficial twin, given the two singers’ vocal similarities.
Today, Curtis is going solo – well, almost solo – on “I Need You Lord” for Darrell Jay Jones’ OverBoard Records of Crockett, Texas. That is, while “I Need You Lord” is certainly Curtis’s song, he is ably assisted throughout by the lovely soprano voice of recording artist Angela Williams.
As you might ascertain from its title, “I Need You Lord” is a pleading prayer for the Lord to not let go and leave the sinner “stranded with a broken heart.” The song is set to a hypnotic tempo and melody, and the mantra-like chorus is the thread that ties it all together.
