Music is power.
Last summer, my friend, Mikey Cunningham wrote a new song he titled "Right Here."
The sensitive and moving lyrics speak to hunger, urban poverty, homelessness and despair. Even more, the music begs several questions about our inability, our unwillingness to make meaningful human connections to impoverished people in our communities.
Mikey is a member of the Stefano Elliott Band, a local group of Christian musicians from the Southlake Boulevard Church in suburban Southlake, Texas. That may seem like a strange place for the incubation of such music, but then you likely don't know Mikey or his buds!
You can give it a listen by going to this link and then playing track 2:
I'd love to hear your thoughts and feelings after you hear it.
