Great reviews of Robert's new project, Soul Sanctuary, keep coming in.  Bianca Woodard of TekoaGospelNews.com says, "Robert Person has a classic voice. He is at his apex when his voice is paired with classic jazz tracks such as 'I Call On You' and a jazzy rendition of 'Great Is Thy Faithfulness'.  His rendition of Donny Hathaway's 'Someday We'll All Be Free' is an easy listening lover's dream".  Bob Marovich of TheBlackGospelBlog.com says, "Robert E. Person is from Washington, DC but his voice is as big as Texas.  His robust style - part gospel singer, part jazz balladeer - can be heard on his third CD, Soul Sanctuary, an indie project with major label personality."  Jessica Brooks of Breathecast.com says, "One listen to Person's rearrangement to the classic hymn 'Great Is Thy Faithfulness' will not only draw in lovers of gospel music but also those who enjoy the creative expression that jazz music harbors, which is displayed not only through Person's smooth vocal performance but also through the masterful piano solo and thumping acoustic bass, which are common to jazz music."  For more information on Robert E.
