• Hawk Nelson "Never Let You Down" Song Story

    Friday, November 2, 2018
    Here's some straight up encouragement for YOU from Hawk Nelson's Jonathan Steingard in this Behind The Music for "Never Let You Down"...

    "We are so used to being loved by how we look or how we dress or how well we follow a list of rules. And, that is not how God loves us. We can count on Him no matter who we are, no matter where we're at in life and no matter what our story is." - Jonathan, Lead Singer

    "All these questions
    Without answers
    Feeling restless and abandoned 
    Will You hear my call
    Will You be there when I fall

    You say, all of this time and I've never let you down
    I carried you then, I'll carry you here and now
    So don't lose heart and don't forget
    My work in you ain't finished yet
    Hold onto Me now, I'll never let you down
    I'll never let you down"
    - Lyrics from "Never Let You Down (feat. Hunter and Tara)"

    The guys got creative with their lyric video, check it out:

    TobyMac: The Story Behind His New Song "Everything"

    Wednesday, October 10, 2018

    "Lord, I see You in everything, all day 
    And every beat of my heart keeps reminding me 
    I see You in every little thing, all day 
    No matter where I go I know Your love is finding me...
    "Lyrics from "Everything" by TobyMac

    In this Behind The Music TobyMac talks about how God didn't settle for showing him just "something" to craft a song from. Instead, God showed him  "Everything"...

    "I walked in the studio that day with a fresh song to write. Yep, a new song in my heart. And, I'm gonna fight to keep looking for God in everything, all day." - TobyMac, "Everything"

    With this song story fresh in your mind, take a look at the Official Music Video for "Everything." In it, TobyMac uses some cool imagery to express the opportunity we have to see God in 'every little thing, all day'. The ending is especially touching...

    The Inspiring Story Behind Hillsong United's New Song "Not Today"

    Friday, September 21, 2018

    "I believe that God is faithful to His word and we have nothing to be afraid of. So this song is fun. It's indignant in the right ways ... it's designed to be a confession that we sing ... let the devil know not today!"

                                                                                                                               - Joel Houston, Hillsong UNITED

    Recently, Joel Houston and Taya Smith of Hillsong UNITED sat down and talked about the stories behind their new song "Not Today." Taya, offering her perspective from the unique position of leading people into the worship experience, says this about the lyrics and song flow:

    "It is like a progression; because, you know, we're singing: 'Tell the devil no not today. I'll sing the night into the morning, I'll sing the fear into Your name or Your praise.' And, I love that because it's like you're telling your soul what you're actually gonna do and you're telling yourself that's what my reaction is gonna be.

    And, as the song progresses, that part gets bigger and then, just at the end, it's just like I'm basically just going for it and roaring." Taya continues, "And, I hope in that moment it would encourage people. And, if they need a confession and they need a reminder of what our stance should actually be as Christians, that they would be encouraged in that and they would be like, 'Hey, I can sing this.'"
