“Ain’t Nobody Like Jesus”
Red Torch Music (release date: June 15, 2021)
By Robert M. Marovich
Ron Rawls may be best known as the music director for Christian artist Mandisa; he worked on her Grammy and Dove Award-winning album, Overcomer (2013). On “Ain’t Nobody Like Jesus,” a bracing pop-flavored ode of gratitude to Jesus, Rawls shows his stuff as a solo artist.
Its funky chorus evokes jams from the likes of John Legend and Bruno Mars. Fundamentally the song is a call-and-response between Rawls and the background vocalists, but the superb musicians and Rawls’ staccato delivery and production finesse take it to another level. It is his fifth single as a solo artist. Marvelous.
