Singling the Right Song
Two years ago, give or take a month or so, the Collingsworths released their last studio project, We Still Believe. It closed with a ballad penned by Rebecca Peck called “Blessed Be the Lamb.”
Now to rewind the clock a little, this was, I think, a little before the Collingsworths started doing Gaither dates. I was of the opinion at the time that they had the talent, beyond question, to be one of Southern Gospel’s biggest groups, but they were three minutes away from the top. In other words, they needed a good radio song that people would associate with the group.
As soon as I heard “Blessed Be the Lamb,” I thought, for the first time when hearing one of their songs, “This could be the one!” It is a well-penned and well-arranged ballad that fits their group perfectly.
This month, they are finally sending it to radio. So we shall see if I was right.
