About the Album

Calee Reed makes her mark as a thoughtful and exciting new voice in spiritual and inspirational music with this beautiful follow-up to her debut album. Her folk pop sound is the perfect backdrop to gorgeous vocals and soaring melody lines. The title track, “What Heaven Feels Like,” stands out with a tender description of the lasting relationships we forge in this life that remain through the life to come. In the song “Possible,” Calee writes from an authentic place of joy as she reflects on God’s ability to extend our efforts beyond what we thought was possible. The song “Charity” is a celebration of love, and “In His Eyes” helps us see ourselves with love, acceptance, and peace. This album will help you see and enjoy more in life. It’s the perfect album to keep you dancing and singing through the summer.

My Review

Calee Reed is a new artist to me and I'm looking forward to seeing what she produces next. I absolutely love the cover for this album, especially since it fits the overall message and title. I liked all the songs from What Heaven Feels Like, although some I liked more than others.

I Am Enough reminded me a little of Fergie from Black Eyed Peas. Then Possible and Sunshine are reminiscent of Colbie Caillat. Miraculous, What Heaven Feels Like, and Come Unto Christ are slower paced while the rest of the songs are more upbeat. Calee's voice has a slight edge to it and I feel she could definitely rock out if she wanted to and it would fit her voice. Although, on Miraculous her voice is smoothed out and beautiful, which fits the song.

I liked all the songs on the album. There seemed to be some issues with the mixing though. Some parts of some of the songs had the artist's voice so low that I couldn't hear her without turning the volume up quite a bit.  Then the accompaniment/band seemed slightly off in parts, not in the beat, just that the music didn't seem as full as I wanted to hear it in balance to Calee's voice.

My favorite song would have to be What Heaven Feels Like, and a few of the others I'll be singing along to on Sundays when I listen to inspirational music. The album is overall a good release and I'd recommend it to those who enjoy listening to Christian music that's on the lighter side.
