The timeless British entertainer Cliff Richard has been performing since the late 1950s, when he was touted as the U.K.'s answer to Elvis Presley. Such comparisons are ancient history, and Richard's squeaky-clean image and Christian faith have kept his career afloat through countless musical fads and fashions. This collection of contemporary Christian songs combines his pop acumen and religious convictions in a winning set that includes the catchy "Healing Love," a duet with Tammy Wynette on the inspirational "This Love," and a salute to his rock & roll roots on "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music," all of which feature the singer still sounding as youthful and as enthusiastic as when he had his first hit, 1958's "Move It," five decades before.
