You might say that gospel outfit The Jones Family Singers have been on a, pardon the expression, holy tear lately. Things really took off for the Texas-based collective following a transcendent July 2014 appearance at New York City’s Lincoln Center and have not slowed down since

The Jones Family CDFor their latest project, the Bishop Fred Jones Sr.-led troupe returned to their hometown of Markham to record a live album at Mount Zion Church of God in Christ. “Live From Mt. Zion” is a tour de force performance — especially for supremely gifted lead singer Alexis Jones — that is almost sure to make you believe in a higher power.

The 11-member ensemble rocks with Jesus and rolls with the Holy Spirit on standouts like “I Am,” “He Took the Key,” “You Woke Me Up in the Morning” and “I Love You.” Even if you aren’t a big gospel fan, The Jones Family Singers and “Live From Mt. Zion” merit your attention. Hallelujah! (Jeffrey Sisk)
