All In One is the fifth solo album by multiple Grammy and Stellar award winning gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard, released on April 6, 2010.[2] The album debuted at #3 on the U.S. Billboard Gospel Albums chart and #98 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 albums chart and was the first album to be released on her own music label, Karew Records.[3]

The album's lead single - "Prayed Up" - peaked at #9 on the U.S. Billboard Gospel Songs chart and spent over 32 weeks on the chart.[4] The album's Second Single He Knows (feat. Dorinda Clark- Cole) has currently peaked at #15 on the U.S. Billboard Gospel Songs chart. The album sold moderately well but still did not match its predecessor Finally Karen, which is Sheard's largest selling album to date. However, All in One received positive reviews from critics and gathered Grammy, Stellar, Dove, and BET Award nominations and remained a top seller on Billboard's Gospel Charts.
