New artist Emily Faith is premiering the music video for her debut single, "When I Met Jesus" on NewReleaseToday. The song and video share the testimony of encountering Jesus for the first time. "My sin was deep, His love is wide I was changed for good that night"
"When I Met Jesus" boldly and kindly sets the stage for the honesty the songwriter conveys as she tells stories of encountering God for the first time. "For quite some time I've wanted to write a song that puts to words the life-changing moment when someone realizes they want to be a Christian," explains Emily.
The single alludes to the many different experiences people may have when encountering Jesus–either for the first time or in a renewed way after many years of already knowing God.
"God is here. Jesus is here. He's my comfort and the place I can go when I have struggles and He'll help me through it," Emily cotinues, describing her personal connection with the track. "The song tells that story. It's something people can relate to from all different levels and backgrounds depending on what they're going through in life."
While many artists feel pressure to fit into one box, Emily Faith chooses to fight against that narrative as she tells stories of faith, freedom, and persistent joy rooted in Jesus while highlighting the country styles of the Opry stages where she grew up performing. Emily's entry into the Contemporary Christian space began in 2017 when she opened for the Newsboys' God's Not Dead - Rivals tour, and shortly after, opening for for KING & COUNTRY when she was only 16. Releasing a few Christian pop songs, making regular writing trips to Nashville, and connecting with the right production team helped Emily develop her sound which includes elements of both Christian and Country. Openness and true connection radiate through Emily's music and lyrics. Drawing from her own personal experience with faith and culture, Emily's songs walk listeners through a positive journey, encouraging them in their faith while bringing a sense of settled happiness.
