Rest

January 6, 2016

Michael Kiwanuka was once Adele’s supporting act. But as an up-and-coming singer-songwriter, he can stand on his own two feet. Like Adele, he has an incredible voice and a character that speaks for itself, and yet you can’t compare Adele’s heartfelt ballads with Michael Kiwanuka’s soul-infused jazz. Best to appreciate them both as musical geniuses in their own right.

This song is what I mean by finding calm in a world of chaos. It reminds me of what Jesus said as recorded by eye-witness Matthew: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
