Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Church leader, speaker, community advocate, and acclaimed hip-hop artist Legin returns with In This Moment, a personal and passionate musical response to racial injustice, political divisiveness, and disunity in the country. Produced by GRAMMY® Award winner Laquan Green and written by Legin, the EP was birthed during a prayer march which the artist helped organize and host in his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia, following the death of George Floyd. The event brought together more than 100 churches, with more than 5,000 people participating. 
 
"This was a day I'd dreamed to see–the Church unified," Legin remembers. "Not for a service, concert, or conference, but brought together by something we've been taught should divide us. The diversity in that crowd–as we urged reconciliation with God and man–showed me a tangible expression of 'on earth as it is in Heaven,' where none of this division exists."
 
Just days after the march, Legin and Green set their experience–and years of working to build bridges of racial understanding and cooperation in their communities and churches–to music. "We just recorded our raw emotion, feelings and perspectives tempered with what we believe to be balanced authentic Gospel Hope that isn't polarized or intangible," Legin says. "Motivated by the march; the current state of affairs and political rhetoric; and our Christ, we created In this Moment."

 


 The EP's four songs bring to life Legin's heart cry for unity and compassion as ultimately expressed in the Gospel. "Faces" is a stinging plea to not turn away from injustice, reminding believers to see every face as one made in God's image. "Refuse To Pick" (feat. Parris Chariz) is the artist's exhortation to step beyond divisive political rhetoric, following Jesus' call above all. With the intensely personal "Feel," Legin vulnerably processes his own emotions while dealing with the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. And the collection's moving closer, "Cry," is a modern-day song of lament, reminding listeners that any injustice done to a person of any color should be met with mourning.
 
"I hope this project will help listeners move away from political idolatry, away from their corners, towards the middle of the room, towards God and each other." Legin concludes. "The shadow of that idol dims the Light the Church is called to be. I believe the Church has the answer. I don't believe God has a plan B."
