Red Rover


Hip-Hop / Rap

Artist Statement

This version of Red Rover is a variant of a song from my first album, When Ravens Cry. The process to create this song started off as a normal one; selected the music, wrote and recorded the lyrics to the verse and chorus. Then - once I began wrapping the song up to send to mixing, I found inspiration for a second half of the song (which became a remix officially, but is included in this version). This song is special to me because it allows me to encourage other believers to fight the good fight, as I encourage myself to do the same.

How it fits into contest

I believe that this work responds to Ephesians 6:10-20 as it was created as a reminder to stand in faith and embrace the fight - noting that our perspectives on the how and why we fight as believers are different, for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. Armor is used as a tool in a fight, and the scripture is using this imagery to exhort readers to put on the spiritual things as intentionally as one would put on the natural one. We stand to fight, and fight to stand in every season, taking in the fresh air of opportunity - the opportunity to walk with God in a new way (through struggle, abundance, uncertainty, the familiar, etc.) , growing in faith, knowledge and wisdom. We fight and stand in the face of obstacles and adversity, not to earn favor with the Lord, but because by grace we've been saved.
