27 January 2023 – Nashville, TN – Initially released on Sarah Kroger's sophomore album, 'Light', during the peak of a global healthcare crisis, 'Belovedness' found a beautiful following for those battling with mental health challenges. From a barn turned studio nestled in the countryside bordering London, UK, the revisited live version of this song captures the intimate settings of its recording. This collaboration with Northern Irish singer-songwriter Nathan Jess offers listeners a version that oozes with sweetness, truth, and a message of healing hope.

"This song feels like it comes from the Father’s heart, so having a male vocalist on it this time around felt important to me," Kroger comments.


While reading Henri Nouwen’s book 'Life of The Beloved', the artist realized that she was only owning her mistakes instead living out of her belovedness. The powerfully soothing ballad was born from her journey of owning the truth of her identity as a child of God, and inviting others to join in. "I think identity is a universal, multigenerational struggle," Kroger says. "Ever since this song released 2 years ago, I have been absolutely stunned by the response [...] my prayer is that this song can continue to be a healing balm for those who have allowed the lies to tell them who they are," she continues.

'Belovedness' is a song that goes beyond the walls of the Church into a world saturated with noise and confusion and invites people on the journey of letting the Truth grow. Sarah Kroger’s standout track is still a source of calm, encouragement, and reassuring rescue to listeners. A safe place to land and unwind, as she concludes: "This is who we are, and it’s literally an instruction: be loved."

About Sarah Kroger:
Sarah Kroger is a Nashville-based, catholic worship leader and songwriter.
With parents involved in worship ministry, her love for music was sparked at a
young age but years of bullying and struggling with anxiety and shyness hid
her musical gift for years. Everything changed when she met Jesus in an
intimate encounter through worship at a youth conference, sparking a new
journey of leading worship for events around the world. The singer-
songwriter’s passion is to create a safe and prayerful space through her music
in which people from any cultural and church background can encounter the
heart of God in a profound way. Sarah Kroger is also part of the multi-cultural
trio Village Lights as well as the female collective FAITHFUL, two enterprises
that are a testament to her prolific creativity and talent.
