Singer/songwriter Tori Harper and producer/programmer Neon Feather teamed up for the first time to write and record the encouraging “Be Like You” that is available now at digital and streaming outlets globally through The Fuel Music. Premiering on CCM Magazine, the song also goes for Hot AC / CHR radio adds beginning May 4.
Written out of areas in their own lives where they see God working, Harper and Neon Feather’s “Be Like You” carries a relevant message that encourages themselves and listeners to not get caught up in the moment and the unrest seen all over social media and in culture today.
“I first had the idea for this song because of all the times I’ve let hurtful words come out without thinking first, and I wanted to remind myself what a kingdom response would look like!” exclaims Harper. “As a Christian, I know that self-control is a fruit of the spirit. Every day I’m trying to become more like Jesus; to be more patient and kind.
“I was so excited to get to bring this idea to my friend Neon Feather, and collaborate on this concept together,” continues Harper. “I’ve always loved his music and was so thrilled that it worked out!”
“This song came together so naturally and felt like a joy to create,” says Neon Feather (aka Ben Thompson). ”I think it flowed out of us because we had been fans of each other for years, so when we finally connected to write, we were already on the same wavelength.
“I literally have such a hard time envisioning my words before I say them,” he adds. “I truly think and process out loud, which gets me in trouble and has hurt people close to me. So I’ve put this song on loop in my head to take my own advice and be more like my ultimate role model who definitely chose His words more carefully.”
