Inspired by South Africans Rebecca Malope and Deborah Fraser on the international scene and the Charambas on the local scene, the album is a vibrant piece worth listening.

The album touches on hope, sacrifice, praise and worship themes. She uses a brilliant mellow voice, which on its own makes her music all the more enjoyable. According to Tyra is about redemption from bondage. "There are a lot of tribulations that the world is going through today and the only significant way we can overcome is through following the Lord Jesus Christ," said Tyra.

The 25-year-old songbird implores fellow upcoming musicians to take their work seriously.  "It is not proper for musicians to cry foul over lack of support when we are not playing our part. However, Zimbabwean music fans should appreciate the processes that musicians go through. Zimbabwe has got vast talent but we lack the proper support structures," she said.

The track Nomufaro which Tyra features Mac Dee is nicely done and it is easy to see her passion for the music on almost every track and perhaps she is one artiste to look out for in the next few years.

Tyra was born on 10 April 1985 at the Harare Central Hospital. She is a beauty therapist by profession and resides in Westgate.  Musically, Tyra has set herself high standards, which might prove difficult to beat in the long run or worse still, go down as a one-hit wonder. Whether or not this is true, it remains to be seen how well fans will receive her music.
