With its very simple yet profound lyrics, (this song) has been written as a call to prayer for the global church. Given the world-wide crisis that is currently taking place there is an urgent need for prayer and this song does an excellent job at instilling a new faith in the hearts of its listeners.
Seth has enlisted the help of the outstanding Lucy Grimble who is a well renowned singer/songwriter within the CCM industry and who also gives a heart warming vocal performance on this track. Lucy’s singer/songwriter vocal delivery and sound combined with Seths Traditional gospel style creates such a refreshing sound that captivates the listeners hearts both musically and lyrically. This collaboration also exemplifies the unity that we hope to inspire with this song.
Seth Pinnock serves up a timely video with his gospel group A New Thing, following the highly-anticipated release of their sophomore album ‘A New Thing Live’ earlier last year. The latest release offers Christian crowds much-needed hope and faith-filled focus during the current, challenging climate of the coronavirus pandemic.
‘If My People’, draws directly from scripture ‘2 Chronicles’ and hosts the considerable vocal skills and dulcet tones of upcoming worship artist, Lucy Grimble. Showcasing a softer, devotional vibe – ‘If My People’ offers itself as a communal prayer, leading our hearts back to a posture of humility as we face these unprecedented times, trusting God to be the only one to offer resolution.
Beginning the year in nationwide prayer during the heavily attended ‘Headstart New Year’s Prayer Week’ – a signature Christian event run through his charitable organisation ‘Symphony Co’, and off the back of a postponed 3 month tour originally scheduled for this Spring – singer-songwriter and social enterprise director Seth Pinnock speaks of the pandemic and latest musical offerings:
“We had planned the tour to begin this spring, however within a week of starting, news of COVID-19 spread among the nation, resulting in us postponing what we were confident would be a significant move of worship and revival. I doubt there’s anybody that isn’t being impacted during this pandemic, whether through significant loss or affected by so much change and transition, so we thought long and hard as to what our offering should be during this time. Ultimately, this was the visual and sound we wanted to contribute to the noise worldwide – one of faith and firm assurance, that God remains in control. If ever there was a time to speak about the fullness of God, to turn our gaze towards Him and seek Him to heal our land, we felt this was it. We pray as a collective, the worship released encourages hearts and lifts spirits…”
Seth and A.N.T. plan to reschedule the tour at the earliest convenience once the pandemic is over, gathering many churches and congregations nationwide into an immersive and impactful worship experience once more. The new video can be found on Symphony Co’s YouTube channel with the song available to download on all major digital platforms, drawing many into a time of hope and peace during uncertainty.
