“Won’t He Do It”
Kim Ruff
Sarahschild Records (release date: April 19, 2019)

By Bob Marovich

A bracing tempo with hard-charging musicians and background vocalists support Stellar Award winner Kim Ruff on her new single, “Won’t He Do It.”

Ruff gives this simple song with a simple message an invigorating delivery. Exploding with gratitude over God’s intercession in her life and wanting to share it with the world, she shouts, scoops, and delivers staccato lines with gusto.

Though one may be more familiar with Ruff’s smooth singing, such as on the ballad masterpiece “As Good as It Gets” from her 2009 Ready to Live, she shows off a more energetic side here. It fits her well, too.

    I love her new single Wont He Do it and can’t stop listening to it.
    I hope to hear more music from Kim Ruff. She is really good. She also did an amazing song with Tony Terry recently called We Didn’t know. I hear she writes all her music. She can sang too.
