Fly With Me – Cassidy and Kelsey

During my daughters camping trip, she and her best friend made this video, “Fly With Me” it is a cover video for the Jonas Brothers contest.   Cassidy is a big big fan of the Jonas Brothers!!  I love to hear her sing and since I am very proud of her I think that it is worthy of  posting on my website.  Great job to both of you!!! I hope you enjoy watching the video!!!

Here With Me – Mercy Me

I long for your embrace
Every single day
To meet you in this place
And see you face to face

Will you show me?
Reveal yourself to me
Because of your mercy
I fall down on my knees

And I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I’m lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender to your love

You’re everywhere I go
I am not alone
You call me as your own
To know you and be known

You are holy
And I fall down on my knees

I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I’m lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender to your love

I surrender to your grace
I surrender to the one who took my place

I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I’m lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender:

I can feel your presence here with me
Suddenly I’m lost within your beauty
Caught up in the wonder of your touch
Here in this moment I surrender to your love

Rest – NEVERTHELESS

A new addition to the files “for those who have ears to hear”.  Recommended by a good friend,  I have listened to their music catalog and found them to be worthy of mention here on my site.

The band has been playing together for 6 years, after forming during high school in the area surrounding Chattanooga, Tennessee.    With a pop rock sound abounding, their  songs naturally lead to powerful performances rife with energy. During live performances, the band  seems to connect with people on more of a heart-level; the kind of emotionally-charged moment that one rarely forgets.

With emotionally-laced lyrics and the predominant use of piano – an instrument that played an important part of Nevertheless’s sound during its independent days.  It reaches into the soul and grabs the listener.  “We feel like it’s a lot easier to just write heavy songs than it is to sincerely express a message.  A piano has a way of really capturing a listener, and we find that it brings out emotions better than a guitar.” says Cheek.   “We intentionally sought to progress in how our record would sound this time.   It’s not a complete departure from the last records’ sound, but more an accent of it, with a bit more depth of emotion.”

It is with this song “REST” that it truly captures the soul and points the listener to Jesus Christ.  Sit back and have a good listen to a band called NEVERTHELESS…it will be well worth your time.

Thanks for the recommendation, Preston, you have great taste in music.
