ReceptionEdit

Yuri comes back to the public view with this album of inspirational style under the supervision of Polygram. This is a foray into Gospel music, pop, hip hop and blues. Four singles were extracted:"¿Y tú como estás?" (How are you?), "Soy Feliz" (I'm happy), "Ven y tócame" (Come and touch me) and "Hoy que estamos juntos" (Today we are together). She achieves to chart in the first spots of the Religious radio stations with her songs: "Jesucristo" (Jesus Christ), "María Magdalena" (Mary Magdalene), "El milagro" (The miracle) and "Deja al amor fluir" (Let love flow). She creates polemic and controversy in the Mexican news because of her radical prudery, leaving behind the femme fatale image, since that representation didn't match with her then-style of religious. With this album, she announced an indefinite cease to her career in order to dedicate her time to divulge God's word and welfare[2].

It reached #12 in Pop Latin Albums in Billboard.[1]
