The renowned Reba McEntire has put out a new gospel album, "Sing it Now: Songs of Faith & Hope". This is a two-disc set which contains 10 gospel classics on the first disc and 10 new original songs on the second disc.
In an interview with Reba and Nash Country Daily, a question was asked about her favorite song on the new album. “They are all my favorites,” said Reba. “I mean, when you go to look for songs, they’ve got to really touch your heart. I learned a long time ago, don’t ever record a song that you don’t like because it’ll become a single, hopefully, and then if you don’t like it, you got to keep singing it for the rest of your life. I always try to pick songs that I really do like.”
Reba goes on to say, “What people will take away from this album is totally up to the Holy Spirit. I’m just the conduit. I’m the messenger. It’s up to Him.”
In the interview, it was apparent that Reba “had a serene sense of calm and ease about her — different than meetings in years past." So, the question was asked: what has changed?
She answered by saying, “I have changed by learning more about myself, gaining strength, gaining wisdom and knowledge and understanding of what I’m supposed to be doing and knowing that I can do all things when God is in control and by just turning over so much to Him and quit worrying about everything. That’s the biggest fault I think I had, was worrying. No, I can’t say that’s true either because I don’t really worry that much, but being concerned and think like I can handle it and think I can control it and think I could do it. Why would you even want to when He can do it so much better?”
