“Jesus Lift Me Up”
Jim Vierra feat. Ron Poindexter
Fifty Something Records (release date: May 6, 2024)

By Robert M. Marovich

Grammy-nominated vocalist Ron Poindexter’s melodious lead on “Jesus Lift Me Up” fills the song with the vibrant spirit of Hawkins Family-inspired contemporary gospel. The musicians and background vocalists offer strong assistance, and the compelling refrain is ideal for congregational response. We need more uncomplicated, straightforward gospel songs like this. Jim Vierra wrote the song with Poindexter and produced it for his own Fifty Something Records imprint.
