Today's Video Share Sign of the Times (Harry Styles) Cover by Rachel Layne

The first time I heard Sign of the Times by Harry Styles I knew right away that I wanted to cover it. There was something about this song that struck me as timeless, unique, captivating and powerful. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics is almost soothing as the beauty of the melody is reminiscent of a lover’s consolation. I right away thought of David Bowie at the line: “breaking through the atmosphere”. It’s really an amazing piece.

Today's Video Share: Forget by Sherry Lynn Lee

The video for "Forget" is a nod to Toronto, the city which had inspired Sherry-Lynn for 6 years. A vibrant cultural hub and an inclusive community at heart, Toronto was the first place where she felt she could be celebrated for being herself. She has since moved to California, where she met her duet partner George Paolini. Together, they fused their disparate influences to create their unique blend of jazz, folk, rock, classical and singer-songwriter. The song "Forget" is featured on 23rd Hour's album "Perfect Strangers", which peaked at #10 on the iTunes new jazz best-sellers list a few days after its release. The duo has since been featured on FEMusician, Hypebot, CDBaby's DIY blog, Break The Business and several others, sharing their tips with other indie artists.

Today's Video Share: I'm Still Here by Corry Bell

In 2005, my 20 year old son, Beau, was diagnosed with schizophrenia, leaving him feeling lonely, depressed, invisible and misunderstood. This song, I'm Still Here, was written about his journey and the victory he felt through faith. It is my hope that it will touch the lives of people who struggle with mental and emotional disorders and the people who support and care for them.

Today's Video Share: Heal My Broken Heart by Patty Felker

This moving expression of grief toward God is astoundingly honest, a faithful outpouring of emotion with an underpinning of Biblical strength in relying on God even through the seriously tough times. Remember that God hears your cries, understands your pain, and is there to comfort and console you. May this song give you a way to help voice the deepest hurts to our heavenly Father. Know that God is there for you, and even named His Holy Spirit the 'Comforter' so you could always go to Him as a child goes to their Daddy when they are hurt. He is always available to comfort the cries of His children. Written by Patty Felker shortly after the 911 attacks, and a personal attack on a family member which brought up past hurts, this song has become her most popular song on YouTube. It just goes to show that the world is full of many broken people who need encouragement. Patty is the owner of Noteworthy Christian Music, a small publishing company in Durham, NC, which publishes and promotes her music.

Today's Video Share: Madonna of Tears by Radio Stranger

Co-writer and vocalist Kelly Brightwell commented, "Radio Stranger's "Madonna of Tears" has struck a chord with many people and celebrates the power and resilience of women, in the archetype of the Sacred Feminine. The seed of the song came in the very first line: "I come from a long line of women who cry..." I thought about different women I knew and their inspiring (and sometimes heartbreaking) stories of strength and perseverance. The idea expanded to not just women in my family and community, but also to mythical realms such as the tale of the Virgin Mary (in her manifestation as the Madonna Delores) and even the concept of the Earth Mother. Seen through this lens, our struggles are sacred, our tears are transformational, and our open hearts can heal the world."

Today's Video Share: I'll Follow Jesus by Glenda Jackson

One night I lying in bed reflecting on my Christian walk and began to question if I really understood what that entails. In the wee hours of the morning I awoke with this song stirring in my spirit so I did as I usually do when the Lord gives me a song....I got up and wrote it out.
I am a mother of two, grandmother of 4, Licensed Minister and singer/songwriter. I love writing songs that glorify God!

Today's Video Share A Different Kind of Life by Marie Chabot

My name is Marie Chabot, and I am from Massachusetts. I have been singing and writing songs most of my life. Last February I attended a songwriter workshop in Nashville, TN, and at the time there was a lot of talk about immigration laws, and the Trump's ban. Our teacher, Mary Gauthier, gave us a picture and a poem of the statue of liberty, to see if we might be inspired to write. I found an old room with an upright piano, started thinking about my grandfather, who came to the US as a child from Italy. The words and melody started to flow, and this song, "A Different Kind of Life" is the result.

Today's Video Share: Cruel Expectations by Ali Sperry

I wrote this song with my friend Lauren Shera, inspired by our experiences as women in the music business. It's a song about holding your own, being selective about who you let in your inner circle, and self-acceptance. Both Lauren and I are heavily folk influenced writers, so it was fun and refreshing to create a piece of music that evolved into a dance-worthy pop song.
