FOR a while it seemed like the singer had enjoyed her 15 minutes of fame. While Faith always looked the part and her début album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? sold half a million copies, lacking a hit single there were rumours the singer might have to find a new label. Thankfully RCA proved they weren’t as fickle as some and are now reaping rewards thanks to Faith’s follow-up Fall To Grace. With stand-out tracks, Picking Up The Pieces and a stunning cover of the INXS track Never Tear Us Apart, Faith looks to be on good form.
