Michael W Smith raises the bar again with Wonder
July 23, 2010 Leave a comment
Ever the creative risk taker and industry innovator, Michael W Smith delivers the most powerful and personal album of his career, all while living out his faith with the unsurpassed energy and passion that defines him as a man.
With the new 12-song project Wonder, Smith struggles with the disparities of life in the modern age: hope and hardship, confusion and confidence, desperation and dedication.
Yet, through it all, he emits a musical and lyrical sense of possibility. Continuously transformed by the impact of his global travels and the inspiration of his non-profit work (Compassion International, RCKTWN teen club, Nashville Rising, etc.), Smith pushes forward with strength and resolve, believing that Love does win in the end.
It’s this sense of awe and amazement in the midst of the human condition that most aptly describes Wonder.
You’re everything I can’t explain.
You set my heart on fire.
And here I stand amazed.
You take my breath away (“Take My Breath Away”)
Rather than being whimsical or abstract, Wonder shows the legendary and multi-talented singer/songwriter/producer/composer pursuing life and faith with a genuine sense of curiosity, gratitude and determination. Intent to explore the world and his own heart as deeply as he can, Smith again lays bare his life for his listeners, sharing his thoughts, hopes and emotions on his newest and most compelling collection of songs.
