24-year-old Pop Worship artist Alexis Slifer is bringing her passion for worship along with her youthful spirit to her brand new EP Famous For. The six track EP highlights God's faithfulness while bringing out Slifer's love for God, paired with youthful and fun music behind the mature lyrics.
The EP kicks off with moderate-tempo "Eagles," which details mountains and uncertainty while reminding us that God sees the other side of all our circumstances. The chorus is a prayer to see our circumstances as God sees them. "Only One in the Room" is a catchy pop tune that will leave you singing long after the song is over with lyrics of commitment to God and keeping our eyes fixed on Him. "Wonder" is a standout dance track that celebrates all that God has created, reflecting on the wonder of how much He loves us with lyrics like "All of the mountains they rise to the sky / But I'm the apple of Your eye / And all of the oceans crash with a roar / But I'm the one Your heart beats for."
Title track "Famous For" is a declaration of God's character and faithfulness, a battle cry for God to do the miracles that He is famous for in His children's lives. "It's a powerful message to remember the things He's already done and know that He can do them for you too," Slifer said. The song allows rooms to do that with lyrics like "So make way through the waters / Walk us through the fires / Do what You are Famous For / Famous For / Shut the mouths of lions / Raise dead hearts to life / Do what You are famous for."
The EP ends with another pop-infused upbeat track, "Wildfire." It's a song of passion, delight and surrender to God.
The Bottom Line: Slifer brings joy, passion for worship and love for God into an EP that is very well-executed. The EP has something for the younger generation in its upbeat tracks, but also serves any age with mature lyrics that paint pictures of God's faithfulness and love, reflecting on who He is and what He can do.
