Rebecca St. James: I Will Praise You

On Aug. 11, contemporary Christian music artist Rebecca St. James will perform an intimate concert at The Cove. Her latest album, I Will Praise You, is all about the vast “unfathomable love of God.” She’s describes it in detail to The Baptist Standard:

“In this season of new music, God has been reminding me: ‘This is about Jesus. This is about praising him and inviting other people into that journey with you.’ My mission statement and focus is, ‘Get out of the way, Rebecca, and just let people see Jesus.’ It’s all about his glory.”

Rebecca St. James Coming to The Cove

“The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” This quote is what worship is all about, says Rebecca St. James. And, that’s the focus of her latest album entitled I Will Praise Him, which was released this spring.

Australian born St. James has become one of Contemporary Christian Music’s most enduring and beloved artists, embraced by audiences worldwide.  Her signature sound yielded 17 Top 10 singles (nine of which were No. 1) and two RIAA Gold Album certifications (commemorating sales of more than 500,000 units) for God (1996), as well as GRAMMY winning Pray (1999). 

Her new worship album might appear as a departure from her pop hits for which she’s known, but actually she describes it as back to the foundation of her music. In a recent interview with CCM Magazine, she elaborates:  “My other albums, even those that I would consider more teaching or topical rather than worship are mostly all vertical in nature. There aren’t that many that are just person-to-person. I think it’s just kind of an essence of who I am. Even live, so much of what I do song-wise is directed to God.”

Matthew West: “Strong Enough”

This Thursday, our friend Matthew West will be joining us for An Evening at The Cove.

Matthew’s latest single, “Strong Enough,” has spent 11 weeks on the Billboard Christian music charts. This song was inspired by a single mom, Tonia, and the story of her daughter, Haleigh, who was home visiting from college when she was in a devastating car accident. After 13 surgeries in three years and being forced to give up her college aspirations, Haleigh was very frustrated.

“The Lord doesn’t put anything on us that he doesn’t think we are strong enough to handle,” Tonia told her daughter. “Oh yeah? Well, he must think I’m pretty FREAKIN’ STRONG!” was Haleigh’s honest reply.

That story led Matthew to pen the song “Strong Enough.” The song ultimately draws its inspiration from Philippians 4:13 and the simple truth that we don’t have to be strong enough. In fact, we are not strong enough … but God is!

Join us on Thursday when Matthew will sing this and other hits from his album The Story of Your Life.
