Tenth Avenue North's Inspirational Single, "I Have This Hope," Hits Top 10 on Radio and Makes an impact on Winter Jam 2017 Posted: Monday March 6th, 2017
Tenth Avenue North's current single, "I Have This Hope," moves into the Top
10 at Christian radio as the band releases a new music video for the song.
The band debuted the music video with K-LOVE Radio and has also provided an
interesting way for fans to share the song. Check out
where you can watch the video and share it with friends and family.
"I Have This Hope" is from Followers, the band's fifth studio
album. See below why radio programmers have been praising the single.
"It's hard to find a more sincere and meaningful cry for hope on my current
playlist right now."
- Al Skop, SiriusXM
"Love the song, love the message, think it really speaks to our audience."
- Mike Prendergast, KLTY/Dallas
"I think this song will be used for years to come to provide hope to those
that need it the most."
- Mike Blakemore, WFSH/Atlanta
"The last year has been rough for Orlando. The Pulse tragedy, Hurricane
Matthew and the loss of two police officers has shell shocked our
community. Tenth Avenue North's 'I Have This Hope' is proving to be a
healing salve on our hurting home town."
- Dean O'Neal, WPOZ Orlando
"'I Have This Hope,' draws me in to remind me that we can remain hopeful
despite our circumstances. Hope is an anchor for joy, through flood or
fire...regardless of what's happening, God is present, and we can believe
He has a future for us."
- Kelly Corday, KLJY St. Louis
The personal, tender ballad was written during a time of personal
uncertainty in guitarist's Jeff Owen's life. Jeff's sister-in-law, a
32-year-old mother of three, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She began
chemo treatments in early February of 2016 just as the band first began
writing for Followers. Rooted in Isaiah 43, "I Have This Hope," was penned
in her honor.
"For the most part, the things I see in Scripture are really not the
promise of this plan working out a certain way, but it's the promise of His
presence with us through whatever happens," frontman Mike Donehey observes.
"God doesn't say, 'You will be spared of tragedy.' He says, 'Tragedy won't
crush you; it won't overwhelm you; it won't consume you. I am with you.'
Two-and-a-half months after the song was written, when the band entered the
studio to record the song, Owen's brother and sister-in-law received the
news that her cancer was in remission. It was divine intervention and a
literal in-studio reminder to the band that God is in the details.
