Day 1: A Favorite Song

Day one of the 30 days challenge is, "What is your favorite song?"
My favorite song is "Stay Strong" by the Christian group Newsboys.

Here is a link to the song on youtube:

Newsboys is a band that has been around for over 25 years. They came over from Australia. Up until 2009, only one of their original band members was still in the band and that was their lead singer Peter Furler. Then Furler decided to retire and former DC Talk member Michael Tait took over as lead singer.
Ever since Furler left, Newsboys hasn't been the same... They'll always be my favorite band. But without Peter Furler's unique song writing flare, Newsboys just isn't the same. Before, Newsboys songs sounded so full of God. The songs are still very God-centered but they just seem to fit with all other other recent Christian music. There's nothing super unique about them.

Stay Strong is my favorite song because it reminds me I need to stay strong in Christ and not rely on myself or worldly things to keep me happy.

Speaking of music.... Here is a video of me playing saxophone!

  2. I agree with you about the Newsboys...they just aren't the same these days. But I still like them! I really liked the video of you playing the saxophone! You sounded really good!
    And about the 30 day blogging challenge, I would love to do it, but I am way too busy. I don't really have a favorite song. I like so many songs!! I love Mirror by Barlowgirl, Beautiful Ending by Barlowgirl, Our Worlds Collide by Barlowgirl, Stay Strong by Newsboys, and so many others. Can you tell who my favorite band is?? :D
    See you soon!
    Love, ShiningHisLight97
