"God Is," the highly-anticipated new single from acclaimed Artist Garden Entertainment singer/songwriter Holly Starr, is poised to impact radio next month. Penned by Phillip LaRue and GRAMMY® Award-winner Christopher Stevens, the song was produced by Stevens (TobyMac, Jamie Grace) and Chuck Butler (Mandisa, Royal Tailor).
Going for adds at Christian AC and CHR radio May 16, the powerful piano-driven single celebrates Christ's attributes, conveying the Hope found only in Him.
"It brings me great joy knowing that whomever hears this song will get a sure taste of Who my God truly is," says Starr. "'God Is' does this in a way so simply and clearly that you can't finish the song without knowing a handful of His characteristics--our firm foundation. It is a deep desire of mine to simply share with others the character of God, to be a voice of encouragement to the Church, and a voice to share about who God is with those who might not know Him. He is our promise. Our refuge. Our strength."
Starr is performing "God Is" for audiences around the country as part of the "Save The Storks Tour." In conjunction with the LIFE Runners A-Cross America Relay, the "Save The Storks Tour" also features speaker Bob Lenz. Since kicking-off last month, the tour is slated to hit a total of 23 cities before concluding this weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.
With a mission to empower women to choose life, Save The Storks partners with local pregnancy resource centers to operate Stork Buses outside of abortion clinics, helping save babies, rescuing women from the pain and heartbreak of abortion, and sharing with them the Good News of Jesus. The organization is the national beneficiary of the LIFE Runners 2014 A-Cross America Relay, and the tour is also helping raise money for additional Stork Buses.
Known for her loyal online fan base, the music videos for Starr's previous singles "Don't Have Love" and "Through My Father's Eyes" have collectively exceeded 1 million YouTube views to date. Both songs were Christian radio hits last year, reaching Top 25 on Hot AC and Top 30 on AC charts.
Starr's latest full-length recording, Focus, is a noteworthy collection of vibrant pop songs reflecting the acclaimed singer/songwriter's artistic maturity and heart for worship. A Quincy, Washington, native, Starr's Artist Garden Entertainment (Save The City Records/Provident Distribution) recordings also include Embraced (2008) and Tapestry (2010).

God is greater than the pain| Posted June 11, 2014 My family has been blessed by Holly Starr's music ministry and her great example of how to be a modest and godly woman who expresses her love for Jesus and how He has rescued and redeemed her from the lies and destructive messages of the world. "God Is" picks up with Holly's desire to provide words for the Church to sing about our Lord, to edify and build up believers with her anointed voice and transparent faith. In that way, her newest song "God Is" reflects her heartbeat to sing about the attributes of God and make an offering of praise to Him. His Name is a strong tower. We can call out for Jesus and He will keep us safe. This is a truth for believers to cling to. We're not supposed to just hope it is true, or turn to the Lord as only our last resort, but daily be washed by the Truth of the Word of God. If we learn to build our lives on Scripture, we would all have a Rock as our foundation as we navigate our lives. We can know for a fact that the words of this song are true: "God is greater than the pain." Amen to that!
