How do we go from raw inspiration to a radio-ready song? We work in waves. What starts with a single line has the power to transform lives, families, and even communities.
SONG OF THE WEEK
Fear Not was written and produced by a group of students from SMART Summer Program inside of Mt Olivet Baptist Church.
The idea for the song began with a conversation about what everyone wanted out of life in general. That lead into a conversation about the obstacles in life that keep you from achieving what you envision for your life.
The students decided that fear was the biggest obstacle, so they wrote their song about overcoming their fears."
