After 3 previous remix collaborations on Vibe Boutique Records (Tonight, Flying High & Get Away), Dirty Harry and Mpho Masilo take a bold stab at recreating the infamous soulful-gospel ballad 'Open My Heart' (originally recorded in 1999 by the legendary Yolanda Adams, Jimmy Jam, and Terry Lewis).

The song itself is a testament of spirituality, and the idea to recreate it came when Mpho posted a video of herself singing the song during the early days of the pandemic as a song of hope during a time of hopelessness. On this rendition, Mpho Masilo delivers a lush and impassioned vocal atop soothing string arrangements, warm pianos and an emotive electric guitar lead providing the backdrop for her vocal. This house rendition stays true to the vibe of the original, yet delivers wonderfully in the soulful house arena.
