Do you have hope that Heaven someday will be a place of no more tears?
Do you have a loved one gone?
No matter how long ago you lost someone, we all go through this at some time in our lives.
Nathan and Dave both felt the words of this song resonated with them enough to be a part of this mad brained idea of mine.
I lost a dear friend, one of seven girls that have been friends for 50 years. Another one of us has a terminal condition, and it’s a painful journey for each of us.
Just like yours probably is.
Seven is the number of completion and perfection, the way we will be in Heaven one day if we know Christ as Saviour.
Listen to this Part 1—a 15-minute interview by Ross of 96threeFm about the song and a message of how life and death within a song can encourage you in your loss. However before you do, please read about why this is an important topic for all of us.
I wrote the words firstly, as a poem, then put it into song format which Nathan Plumridge, a gifted Geelong-based Christian singer/song writer, formatted and wrote a melody to and is now the featured singer. Dave, my son-in-law, a wonderfully experienced Alice Springs musician, with Casii Williams a local indigenous girl doing backing vocals with DaveCroweMusic, did a fantastic job of the production.
If you download this song, available right now from Bandcamp you can donate any amount you would like or pay the one-dollar standard fee with up to 90% going to the artists (in this case the charity) as compared with 5-17% from other platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.
All proceeds earned by Empowered Music will be directed towards trying to find an answer to Indigenous suicide by supporting the charity the National Suicide Prevention And Trauma Recovery Project (NSPTRP). This is a national tragedy with kids as young as 8,9,10 attempting suicide. You and I can make a difference.
Love and Blessings
