In the capable hands of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship Mass Choir, VaShawn Mitchell’s superb composition, “Cry Your Last Tear,” is splendid.

The simple lyrics and message, wrapped in a “choirtet” arrangement, strike a chord among the attendees of the recording session, as I’m sure it will among gospel music radio listeners.

Along with V.O.W.’s “Somebody Somewhere,” “Cry Your Last Tear” ranks among the finest gospel recordings I’ve heard in 2008.

Cheers for the Mass Choir, and for Mitchell, who is well on his way to becoming a sacred songwriter of significance.
