Come Alive by Mercy River (a music review) and a $25 Giveaway

Come Alive
On the heels of their hit album Higher, Mercy River is back with mesmerizing harmonies and upbeat vocal arrangements. Their new album features inspirational favorites and original songs that highlight the talents of this singing sisterhood. Sing It Out, Speak Life, How Deep the Father's Love For Us, Walk You Through the Night, Who I Am, Holy Ground, Restless Reason, For the World, Walking On Sunshine.

I love music.  Books and music have always been a central part of my life and who I am.  I'm a believer that music has power.  It can bring emotion and memories, inspire, energize, and even comfort.  I am always looking for music that makes me feel good and has a good energy to it.  This is a religious music CD.

There is no doubt that these ladies of Mercy River are talented.  The songs I liked the best were the songs with more harmony.  For some reason I had thought that their songs had more 3 part harmony but it's mostly more like one of them singing lead and the others doing a back up of sorts.  Which is totally fine, I just liked when they did more harmony.  :)

My favorite songs were Sing It Out, Who I Am and Holy Ground.  Sing It Out is upbeat and happy.  It got my fingers tapping (I was driving...).  Who I Am has a fantastic message for all women, young and old about who we really are- God's daughters with purpose and divinity.  Holy Ground has more of that harmony I was looking for.  The sound of that song just speaks to my soul.  It's the song I've listened to the most.

All these songs are lovely.  Some are upbeat and lively and some are slow and rich but all are good and uplifting with meaningful messages.  I enjoyed listening to it and I'm looking forward to making it a permanent part of my memory.  :)

About Mercy River With 13 children between them, it’s amazing that Whitney Permann, Brooke Stone, and Soni Muller have time for anything other than runny noses, sock hunts, and prying suckers off the van floor. But music has been a part of each of their lives since childhood, and is now a strong presence in their homes. The three friends met while singing in the Jenny Phillips Choir and there found a common love for tight harmonies and sharing the gospel through song. Over the past five years, Mercy River has traveled all over the United States and Canada as a highly sought after ensemble, performing for thousands of people while testifying of the Savior. Each member of the group brings several years of experience performing, writing, and directing hundreds of firesides and concerts—as well as recording on dozens of inspirational albums. Their self-titled debut album was released in May 2008. “Beautiful Dawn,” was released in March of 2010. Their third album, “Higher” was released with rave reviews in February 2012. Mercy River is back with mesmerizing harmonies and upbeat vocal arrangements in “Come Alive”.
