Nnenna Freelon selected each of the songs on this album because they each spook to her heart in a personal way. Amazing Grace, for example, was one of the first songs she ever sang in public as a child. She decided to record two very different versions to express both her love and lifelong relationship with that song.

This album was recorded in New York, NY, on April 20-12 and 23, 2000.
