Rehearsals are going well for my next concert (this Friday!). I am so excited to be bringing two new songs into the mix: “Help Me” and “Fire in the Night.” The song “Help Me” was inspired by Psalm 91. Justin Walton’s harmony vocals provide the perfect balance in both nuance and dissonance in the repeated ‘answer’ of the chorus where we sing over and over the name of Jesus. The song “Fire in the Night” refers to God revealing himself as the pillar of fire (as he did with the Israelites while leaving Egypt) in the dark of night and how he leads us when we find ourselves in the deep dark of night, or darkness of soul. Sometimes we even feel him calling to us in the literal ‘middle of the night!’ I respond in the chorus with these words: Fire in the night, here I come.
I am looking forward to sharing this music with everyone at the concert! Here are some pictures from a recent rehearsal.
