Franklin, TN-based singer/songwriter Tori Harper releases amidst acclaim her debut EP,Seasons, May 18 through The Fuel Music. Nineteen-year-old Tori’s original songs are meant to speak truth over people as she vulnerably shares her experiences and the ways in which she has seen God work in her own life.
Wrestling with depression, Tori was divinely reminded that “God sees her.” This became a turning point in her journey that sparked a renewed commitment to Christ. As God began to reveal more of Himself to Tori, and as she began to firmly root her identity in Christ, she became acutely aware of others’ heartaches. Her songs are an effort to respond to people’s hurt from a place of deep authenticity and relatability.
“Through the good and through the bad, He’s with us,” inspires Tori. “He’s not promising that we’re not going to have trials or we’re not going to have issues, but He does promise that He’s going to be with us right through those things; and in the end, He’s going to use that somehow for good and for His glory.”
Taking a cue from Psalm 16:11, Tori wrote the song “Joy” that was produced by Colby Wedgeworth (Jordan Feliz, Mandisa, Danny Gokey) and is reaching millions each week through radio airplay in top markets like Houston, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Dallas, Tampa, Minneapolis and more. The song has also hit the Top 20 (No. 18) on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart.[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_rC_qWlpjI[/embedyt]
“It says in the Bible that in His presence there is fullness of joy. God was really teaching me about the differences between happiness and joy, and I’ve been learning that joy is more permanent,” says Tori. “My hope is that as you listen to this song it reminds you that God’s joy is always accessible to you no matter where you are, and that as you seek God you will find fullness of joy in his presence.”[/vc_column_text][td_block_trending_now][td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_1″][td_block_1 custom_title=”MERGING FAITH WITH POP CULTURE” category_id=”9″ ajax_pagination=”next_prev”][td_block_2 custom_title=”CHRISTIAN/ GOSPEL MUSIC” category_id=”21629″ limit=”6″ td_ajax_filter_type=”td_category_ids_filter” ajax_pagination=”next_prev”][td_block_15 custom_title=”CHRISTIAN ENTERTAINMENT NEWS” category_id=”21732″ limit=”3″ ajax_pagination=”next_prev”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][td_block_ad_box spot_id=”sidebar” spot_title=”- Advertisement -“][/vc_column][/vc_row]
