Listen Up: New urban gospel artist Rick Wide brings a new sound in maiden single “Show Me”
“If I knew the race to the Fallopian tube was rigged, I would know that I was chosen for a purpose, I would know my birth was mysteriously and beautifully designed and I will know that I am destined for more than my heart could ever fathom” – RICK WIDE
The above simple but deep quote sums up the journey which the new and budding urban gospel singer Rick Wide is about to take. To make it official unto the gospel music scene, Rick brings a new heat and a new sound in his maiden single “Show Me” now available on all major music platforms for streaming and download.
The song in its entirety presents a deep thought of the journey with God as individuals. The carefully composed song contains lyrics that highlights a blend of what we label as our own demons – the fear, the failures, the addictions, the scares etc and what God is able to do in us and through us regardless of our shortcomings.
Speaking about the inspiration behind this wonderful piece, Rick added that, the common factor in fighting his fears and struggles is God.
“It’s always hard to stay in love with someone you claim you love. We are ready to bolt when things don’t go as planned. Unfortunately, we translate this to our relationship with Christ; we drift off when the going gets tough. Yet He doesn’t stop loving! I showed Him my scars – scars so ugly it’s embarrassing – yet He showered them with love until I saw them no more. I said, “Lord I’m scared” and He said, “Son, I’ve fought all your fears!” Now I know better. No matter what happens in my life, no matter how hard or bad it gets. This love has got to stay” – Rick added
