Robert Pierre: I'm All In

I recently had the opportunity to preview and now review the new CD from Robert Pierre, I'm All In. I have been looking forward to listening to this CD. I love music, and my teenagers love music! They love to play, sing it and listen to it. Now I must tell you right off the bat, we are a very conservative Christian Family, and are pretty narrow when it comes to our range of music styling's that we will choose to listen to! And that goes for my kids, as well. They have self imposed standards that they live by.

Now, with that being said, I am keep my eye out for new good music for the kids to listen to, myself too, but mostly for the kids. Now, I have wanted to post this post for several days now, however, it has taken me a bit longer, because, my nearly 15 year old daughter took the CD, the day it arrived, took it into her room, and I have not seen or heard it since.... oh but she has listened to it.. over.... and over.... and over.... and over.... That right there, probably should sum up my review, right? Wrong! I wanted to listen to it and give my opinion as well!

Before I do that, let me tell you a little bit about Robert Pierre.  Here is the info that was shared with us as reviewers..


"For Robert, I’m All In is more than the name of his third studio album, due July 26 from thinkaboutit records. It has become Robert’s life motto as he responds to God’s calling to live fully committed to Him.  In addition to writing and recording I’m All In and playing on a summer tour, Robert also leads regular Sunday morning worship at his 800-member Orlando, Fla., church. And he’s done it all as a high school senior.

“All of the songs have something to do with things I was going through my senior year,” Robert said of I’m All In, “preparing to say goodbye to friends and not really knowing what would come next, but finding comfort and peace in the Lord’s plan for my life. The Bible talks about how the eyes of the Lord are searching to and fro throughout the earth, searching for someone whose heart is wholly His, someone He can strongly support. This CD is me saying, ‘I’m all in.’”

Creating I’m All In was a powerfully personal experience for Robert, who teamed with veteran songwriter Jason Ingram (Tenth Avenue North, Sanctus Real, Bebo Norman) and legendary producer Matt Bronleewe (Jars of Clay, Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman) on the album. The result is a collection of songs that enthusiastically and energetically worship God while wrestling with what it means to be a Christian in a world full of difficulty and joy, anxiety and excitement."

I love the fact that he is so actively living for the Lord, and as a high school senior! Currently, many are reporting that the young adults are leaving the faith as they head on their own. Robert Pierre is an awesome example for the children to see a young person, living out what God has called him to do!

Now onto my opinion of the CD. I like it.  The music is not jarring, but it is indeed modern. I can understand the words that he is singing, and he is singing to the Lord! I can picture this CD playing in long car rides and the entire family enjoying the music! But, I can tell you, that the teenagers and young adults are going to really enjoy this CD! It is right up their alley!
