“Give It All to Him”
The Oladipo Sisters
From The Rebirth (release date: June 10, 2018)

By Bob Marovich

Boston’s Oladipo Sisters—nineteen-year-old Oladunni and seventeen-year-old Olayeni-make a joyful noise on “Give It All to Him.”

Though born in Massachusetts, the sisters’ combination British and Nigerian heritage is on display in the song’s simple melody and harmonies, and its lyrics of praise and worship. Their American experience comes through their gospel vocal techniques, including some delightfully improvised soprano notes at the end.

The song is on the sisters’ sophomore project, The Rebirth, which follows their 2011 debut The Mighty One and a couple of singles in the interim.
