Husband and wife duo Inspiration Worship, whose artist name was inspired by the wife's cancer diagnosis, announces today's release of "Whose," the title track from the group's five-song EP. The song is going for adds at INSPO, AC and CHR Christian-formatted radio stations.
"I pray that this song challenges each of us, every day, to make sure our motives are right and that we are worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ," said Linda Doane, who co-wrote the song with her husband, Tom. "It's too easy to get caught up in idol worship-money, fame, work, popularity, pride, self-pity and so on. So, whose heart do you burn for?"
In December 2011, Linda Doane went to the doctor because she was having difficulty breathing. After six weeks of numerous tests, including seven lung taps, she was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and began chemotherapy.
"After that experience," Doane said, "we understand that every breath truly is a gift. So 'inspiration,' which means a single inhale, is the breath of God giving us life and 'worship' is our exhale of gratitude back to Him."
Three years after her first diagnosis and treatment, Doane was re-diagnosed with cancer and has endured additional chemotherapy.
"Our desire to share the Good News was impossible to ignore," she said, referring to the making of the EP. "We pray these songs move you as they have moved us."
The Doanes, who wrote all of the songs on "Whose," co-produced the EP with Clement Ducasse.
