Nigerian singer-songwriter and photographer Ty Bello has just released new music. Her new song is called Land of Promise. She has said that she didn’t really write it but instead the song just came to her already complete. However the simplicity of the song almost deterred her from recording it since songs don’t come that easy to her. She also didn’t want to “peddle false hope” with the whole world around us as sad and messy as it is now. She didn’t want to promote some “pie in the sky mantra. We need to roll up our sleeves and fix our problems.
“I agree… it is time to get serious….hope is where it all begins. Hope sparks the light. It’s where innovation has always come from. That ‘knowing’ that there is a better way. You have to ‘see’ the reality of it to be committed to it. Putting ‘life’ on our lips puts us in a better position to be part of the solution. And raw hope always inspires gratitude …suddenly you begin to see how blessed you really are in the midst of trouble.”
She wants the song to bring light to those in peril and let them know that though the journey ahead may be shrouded in fear and worry that you should never be afraid to say “It is well.”
You can listen to the song below and tell us what you think of the hope filling song.
