Music is large part of our world, it is everywhere. We hear it at the store, in the car, in commercials, people share their favorites on social media. Growing up I never really thought about the lyrics, but I can hear a song on the radio from 25 years ago and I can sing every word. The words in songs must have some impact on our lives even if we don't think they do. That is why I like music that has uplifting encouraging words.
The new CD Live On Forever from The Afters music is upbeat and the lyrics are definitely encouraging and uplifting.
When I was offered The Afters new CD Live On Forever my first thought was do I know any of their songs. My teenage daughter gave me that look......You know the teenager look!! She picked up her phone and played me some songs that I love that are by The Afters.
Every Good Thing
Light Up The Sky
Lift Me Up
Then I couldn't wait for my new CD that was just released on September 9, 2016. We started listening and after we got to Time Of My Life my 11 year old kept repeating it. It is her favorite and I had to tell her to let the rest of the CD play. There are ten tracks:
Time Of My Life
Wake Up My Heart
Live On Forever
Eyes Of A Believer
When You're With Me
This new album is pop music that is very uplifting and encouraging. When The Afters started to record their new album they had several close friends experience tragedies. Including the band's soundman, Anthony Martinez, infant daughter's death.
"If any theme has emerged, it would be 'inspiration and motivation,'" Josh Havens (lead singer), says. "Look at the titles we've selected: They reflect themes of 'rise up, get up, God has your back, you're not in this alone.' We thought, 'Let's encourage people and let this be a weapon for people's faith: something they can hold onto.'"
Where To Buy
The Afters will be touring with the Newsboys this fall to more than 45 cities.
