“I hope it helps people open their eyes to the presence and beauty of God that surrounds us in both our most ordinary and mundane moments AND in our most broken moments,” shares Ellie Holcomb. “I wrote the bridge of this song about my mom’s story. She didn’t grow up in the church at all, but one day in 7th grade, as a group of girls were gossiping in the hall, one of her friends walked away. My mom followed her and asked her if she was ok, and mom’s friend replied. ‘I’m good, I just love Jesus and don’t think it’s very loving to talk about others behind their back, but I knew that I’d just join in if I stayed there.’ My mom had two responses: first ‘Who is Jesus? I’ve never heard anyone talk about him like that?’ and secondly ‘Will you be my best friend- you are amazing?!’ Because of this friend and her family, my mom encountered the living God, and her whole world went from black and white to 3D and COLOR.”
Holcomb continues, “I’m so grateful for the love of God and for the way He meets us in our tears, our sorrow, in the sun that rises golden each morning, in the field of wildflowers, in the laughter of a friend we know, in our darkest nights. I’m so grateful that the truth isn’t just black and white. Truth is embodied in the person of Jesus, a person of color, who walked upon this broken and colorful world, and who broke for us so that we could know the beauty of being broken and beloved.”
Her debut radio single from Canyon is “I Don’t Want To Miss It,” which is currently in the Top 35 on the Billboard Airplay chart and Top 25 the AC Indicator chart with 33 stations on the song. The song has 864k global audio streams to date and the official video has more than 76k views on YouTube.
Today it has been announced that Ellie Holcomb will headline the historic Ryman Auditorium on August 19th. This will be her solo headlining debut for the famed venue. Tickets for the show will go on sale this Friday, June 18th, here.
