If the compilation is a sign of what takes place at this Youth Conference then I’m sure Seattle is filled with the spirit during this event. Various musical talents are used to honor God completed with variety and a passionate love for art.
All Good – Angie Shield opens this great song with the perspective “Wandering, waiting for
direction. Feel so close but there’s no connection.” Knowing that all sinners have been there
she goes in on the chorus to boldly state. “ I’m Strong, can’t nobody tear me down No Fear
cause he never gave me the spirit of it I’m bold - cause I believe in his word It’s all good.” The
R&B flavor delivered in the track gives a hard hitting beat leaving gaps for Shields message
of “God is always there:” to be hear more clearly by the listener.
Say It Loud - Michelle Lang writes bold lyrics while Bria Manaway and Sharron Davis provide the
commanding voices to bring the message that the message of God’s Love is not lost but just
coming through in a different platform. This club inspired beat is fast paced but is covered by
the lyrics of the new generation still standing tall for the Lord.
IGod – The spoken word from Tia Nache will have you think twice before you choose your next
form of communication. The poetess runs down several forms of social media and express her
opinion of how technology is beneficial but will not substitute the personal communication
between people when they gathered together..
I’m A Witness – Michelle Lang hits us with a pop sound as she witnesses her love and total
admiration for God. It’s clear to hear the vocal strength in Lang’s voice as she belts out high
notes with power. This radio friendly song is sure to be a hit with young Christians.
Like Him – Another pop radio sound is delivered with the production by Benji Demps. Brandy
Nordgen belts out a few notes that let you know her vocal ability as she sings of trying to blend
in with the crowd but being different due to her yearning to be more like Christ.
More of You - One of my Fav’s on this compilation. Zach Bruce sings from the heart and shows
that when times get hard he knows who to reach pout to for help. Lyrics like “I’m only human
but I try to be more like you but when I mess up it only proves I need more of you.” sums up the
theme that we all can relate to. The harmony and r&b sound makes this a head nodding radio
friendly tune for all to enjoy.
There is Hope – The compilation switches up musical styles but still delivers a powerful gospel
with a Country/pop gospel flavor. The heavy guitar riffs accompany Mark Wagner as he lets
sinners know that no matter what you’ve gone through there is hope and you can be washed
and cleansed from all your sins. As simple as he track comes across, its’ lyrics are powerful and
will move you to want to know the Lord more personally.
Only You – Rapper Willie Will spits the good news out on this hip hop track while Zach Bruce lays
down a smooth r&b chorus to complete the song. The piano chords during the verse brings a
dramatic persona to Will‘s flow.
What If – Morrissa Nichole asks a very powerful question that everyone who hears will ponder
once hearing this song. “What is we are the only Jesus people see?” The piano played by
Nichole seems to compliment every single word played as we are challenged to be a better
person to each and every person we come in contact with throughout our daily walk.
Winner - Hip hop artist ‘Big Al’ delivers determination pours out confidence in each line as he
holds his head high declaring his love for God. Winner is a definite confidence builder for those
suffering from insecurities. Al assures you that Gods Love will help you through the rough times.
