“Through the Fire”
LaTisha Johnson Montgomery
(release date: March 24, 2023)
By Robert M. Marovich
Gospel singer LaTisha Johnson Montgomery’s confident, emotive delivery sells “Through the Fire,” as does uber-producer Tedy P.’s unnerving atmospheric backdrop.
Montgomery evokes the verve of Jennifer Hudson on the high notes as she encourages other women to persist through the fires of life and emerge, victorious, on the other side. That’s her testimony: “I’ve been burned, but I came out on top.” No subtlety here, nor should there be. Brief but powerful.
