Julie Elias has released her a new single 'Forgive Me' taken from her 12-song album, 'A Girl Like Me'. The song is an original penned by Julie, about being the "bigger person" in a conflict and coming to someone with an apology that wasn’t asked for.
“My new single is about forgiveness. Forgiveness is freedom from our own bitterness and anger, but sometimes we choose to be stubborn and hang on to it,” Elias says. “Well, don’t be stubborn! Take a step in a positive direction and move on! And that’s what ‘Forgive Me’ is about, about being the ‘bigger person’ in a conflict and being proactive in apologizing to someone.”
The new single follows a season of radio success with two of Elias’ Christmas songs taking the No. 1 and No 2 spots on the Christian Radio Chart this past December. “The Nativity Song” was the No. 1 Christmas song for the year at CRC and “Here With Us” ranked immediately behind it.
Elias, who has released five studio albums, including a Christmas EP, also has formed Aurora Ministries, a 501(c)(3) organization, that presents day-long events throughout the nation blending drama, music and special speakers especially for girls in grades 6-12 and their mothers.
The musician, who counts Sara Bareilles, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Francesca Battistelli among her influences, tours regularly in support of her music and ministry.
