Inspirational Song of the Week: Monday – Sunday, August 21 – 27, 2017
“Spinnin’ My Wheels”
Performed by Rebecca Minor
Have you ever craved forward movement? Tried to break through a wall towards love and acceptance? Gotten hurt and built your own walls in reaction? Looked back at your life and realized you had lost your confidence? How about that day you woke up and decided it was time to find the spark in your life again?
That is what Chasing Light is all about. Tracks 1-4 are songs Rebecca wrote several years ago, all from a place of yearning and searching for the life she desired. Track 5 was written right before completion of the album, and marks a turning point in her personal journey, mirrored musically. Many of us are in the pursuit of finding and living our unique expression. For Rebecca, Chasing Light is the score for the story of her pursuit.
Rebecca, an accomplished vocalist, songwriter and pianist, writes pop music from the heart. Her catchy melodies, unpredictable harmonic turns, rich arrangements and deeply honest lyrics will draw you in and strike you to your core. Rebecca shares her story freely, in hopes that you, the listener, will never feel alone in your struggles and triumphs.
