We Recommend - Sarah Kelly, 'Where The Past Meets Today'

This week's recommendation is inspired by the fact I just saw this artist lead a worship service once again only a couple hours prior to writing this. It's no secret that finding refreshing worship music is a difficult task and Sarah Kelly grabbed our attention with a firm (but loving) grip with her 2004 debut Take Me Away. However, her sophomore album briefly deviated from the worshipful direction that that album established as she began to tell the heartbreaking story of her struggles with having been physically abused. The sophomore album, Where The Past Meets Today, is a very personal journey and a vulnerable and honest glimpse into this lovely worshipper's heart. Considering what Kelly has been through, Where The Past Meets Today is umistakably a pretty dark album, but the singer/songwriter mixes classic rock tunes with soft, piano laments to create a unique musical experience. In the midst of the dark times, Sarah sings with hope for brighter days and an end to this season of her life. With her 2008 album Born To Worship, Kelly returned to her roots with an upbeat album that completes a three-album story of darkness and redemption as the album represents her deliverance through God's grace. Where The Past Meets Today is still a wonderful listen and a great album for anyone going through a hard time in their life.
