Carrie previously talked about her love of gospel music. She calls it a “great foundation” that shaped her and inspired her as an artist. She then wanted to be inspiration to others during these challenging times. The “Hallelujah” singer wanted the release date of her new album to coincide with Easter.
“I want it to appeal to the people like me who grew up singing these songs but also, we’ll be introducing these songs to a whole new generation as well,” she explained. “When you think about the meaning behind Easter, it is about so much thankfulness to Jesus. That is what the album is about. What a joy it’s been to make music like this right now.”
