Onitsha is a rare and inspiring study in contrasts. Her debut album, Church Girl, proves she is one of the brightest new stars in the firmament of contemporary inspirational music, and yet the concept of "star-tripping" is not even in her vocabulary. She and her acclaimed producer and co-writer, Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Kelly Price, Yolanda Adams), write song after song, each somehow managing to obey all the rules of great, accessible, popular music, while at the same time stretching—if not breaking altogether—every single one of them.
