Music Review: Steven Curtis Chapman
Artist: Steven Curtis Chapman
Album: “Beauty Will Rise”
“Heaven is the face of a little girl…” These are the opening lyrics on the cd entitled, “Beauty Will Rise” from Grammy award winning artist, Steven Curtis Chapman. After the tragic death of Steven and wife Mary Beth’s five-year-old daughter, Maria Sue Chapman, Steven began writing and recording songs for this album. The lyrics written by the artist himself are from a bleeding heart with a hunger to know and understand God, while trusting Him when nothing makes sense. Even in his grief he gave his talent to God and wrote twelve amazing songs included in this cd. The following lyrics are from the track, “Faithful” and capture the essence of this album. “I will proclaim it to the world. I will declare it to my heart, and sing it when the sun is shining, I will scream it in the dark… You are faithful.” This album can be purchased on itunes or at any local Christian store.
