Credo (Jennifer Rush album)

Credo is the eighth studio album by American singer Jennifer Rush.

Released in early 1997. By this time, Rush was no longer the chart star she had been a decade earlier and was content to discover new styles. On this album she worked with Gospel and African Choirs, who backed her on three of the tracks - including the title track and lead single with a promo video filmed in the Namib desert. The album did enter the charts in her most loyal market, Germany, where it reached No.26 and the single became a minor hit. This was followed by "Sweet Thing", one of the few uptempo songs on the album, while " Piano in the Dark" (a cover of the Brenda Russell song) was released as a Promo-only single after this. Further notable songs featured on the album are the cover versions of Cheap Trick's " The Flame" (1988) and "The Places You Find Love", originally recorded by Barbra Streisand in 1988 and then by Quincy Jones for his Back On the Block album in 1989, as well as a cover of John Farnham's 1987 Australian hit "A Touch of Paradise". Like her previous two albums, Credo went unreleased in the UK and US.
