Award-winning singer / songwriter Natasha Owens globally released “Stand” on April 3 from Radiate Music. Available at digital retailers and streaming outlets globally, the song is meant to be an encouragement for believers in this season where so many are struggling.
Inspired by 1 Corinthians 16:13 and John 8:12, “Stand” was co-written by five-time Dove Award winner with 31 No. 1 songs, Tony Wood, and GRAMMY-nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning “Producer of the Year,” Ian Eskelin, who also produced the song.
“You’ve probably heard the popular old saying, ‘If we don’t stand for something, we’ll fall for anything.’ This isn’t just a pithy phrase - it’s actually a biblical principle!” exclaims Eskelin. “In the world, there are many things fighting for our attention, trying to distract us. The Bible tells the people of God to stand guard, stand firm in unity, and be immovable. Together, we have to hold on to the Truth.”
“With everything going on around us, now - more than ever - we have to be a light and stand for Truth,” agrees Owens “We can’t bow out now. Too much is at stake! It is our sacred calling and mission to display the light and glory of Christ, no matter the circumstances.”
Stand and be a light
Stand for whatever things are
Good and right
And if we’re falling
It’s to our knees
It’s You we need
So we can stand
In a series of new, anthemic songs of worship from Owens, “Stand,” whose lyric video premieres this week from CCM Magazine, follows her single, “Treasure,” released last month. More new music from Owens is expected in the coming months, with a full-length album being planned for early fall 2020.
