“You Can Make It”
Terrence Mackey & Nu Restoration
From the CD Nu Restoration – Vol. 1 (Spiritual City Music 2007)
While “Crossover,” with its fresh hip hop beats, is the signature single from Dallas native Terrence Mackey and Nu Restoration’s debut project Nu Restoration – Vol. 1, I’m partial to the traditional flavored “You Can Make It.”
The 29 year-old Mackey is gospel-singer-turned-preacher on this track, with Nu Restoration supporting him resplendently throughout the song’s slow, incremental rise in intensity. “Crossover” may get bodies swaying, but “You Can Make It” will get the shouting started.
