TGIP: “Deliverance Will Come” – Shea NormanPublished by Torrence Glenn on Friday, May 28, 2010 at 1:43 pm.
Ok, so I bet you’re wondering what in the world is “TGIP?” Let me explain.
I don’t know about you but it seems like everyday at some point during work or my commute that a song comes on my mp3 player that “gets me together.” (I tend to leave it on shuffle so that I don’t get too caught up in listening to one particular CD for too long.) You know what I mean, the *whoosh* happens, or it just makes you happy or just makes you feel a way and in that moment you just “Thank God It Played.” So that’s the explanation of TGIP! So I decided to test out a series where I’d post music each day that really blessed and inspired me that day in hopes that maybe it’ll do the same thing for you, expose you to something you maybe haven’t heard (B-Sides especially), or bring a song you maybe haven’t paid attention to back to the front of mind. I also want you to post comments on what song might have done it for YOU that day. Ask anyone who knows me, I can talk at length about music and share notes and song titles for hours. Depending on who it is, they know when they hear me say “Hey, have you heard this?;” they either get excited or run because they know the conversation could go on forever!
So today’s TGIP song comes from Shea Norman’s debut CD “My Heart Depends On You” that released in 2004. If I remember correctly, he was signed to Fred Hammond’s subsidiary label. I absolutely LOVED that CD and still play it often, and the track “Deliverance Will Come” is probably one of my favorites. Aside from Shea being an absolutely profound vocalist, the composition of the song is what really gets you. The music and background vocals are just perfect! I haven’t heard much from Shea Norman in the years after this release and have been hoping and praying for a follow up CD and I’m going to keep on hoping and praying! Enjoy “Deliverance Will Come.”
So what are you listening to today? Tell us!
