Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights The EP carries a message of finding strength and hope in God during tough times and the peace that anchors us no matter what life throws our way. The sense of timeless truths packaged in personal testimony is present in every song, creating a deeper personal connection between Gary and his listeners. A standout lyric from One on One's lead single, "The Distance" paints a powerful picture of God's grace and nearness to us in our brokenness: There's a beauty in the struggle/There's help when there's trouble/There's a God that's in your rubble/That'll go and pick you up
Best Song On The Record "Never Forget" featuring GRAMMY-winning Gospel artist, Jonathan McReynolds, shines as best song on the record. This song will give you all the pop-anthem meets Gospel choir vibes and will be nostalgic especially for listeners like me who grew up with that kind of church background. "Never Forget" is full of catchy melodies you'll sing along to immediately, a musical wall of captivating background vocals with harmonies that envelop you in the song, and chord changes you'll feel in your soul. Last, but not least, the song's message is one of remembering your personal history with God and celebrating His goodness in your life. You'll have this song turned up loud and on repeat like I have.
Final Word One on One is a project that will continue to inspire and stand out as a favorite amongst fans of Christian and mainstream music alike well beyond its initialrelease. If you're looking for a fresh dose of inspiration, connection with God, and great music all in one place, Gary Levox's One on One is the EP for you.
