“It’s incredible. Listening to the version of ‘My All’ was so moving, I cried,” she says. “Because as a secular artist, I’m not a gospel artist, but I so revere gospel artists. When I heard the song and the way that they turned it around and made it so beautiful. With that moment, when I realized the fact of what they did. They took it and turned it into a spiritual moment. I’m so thankful because I feel like all songs that come like that are a gift from God. They’re a gift. To me, that’s still one of my best songs ever. The fact that they turned it and made it into a gospel song… it’s a huge compliment.”
