Canadian singer and songerwriter Rhonda Louise has just released her brand new single. "Tell Me" is taken from Louise's highly acclaimed album Brave Girl. The song is heartfelt prayer to God for the auurance of his presence and comfort during troubled times.
When Louise writes about such troubled time, you know she means every word she sings. She reveals, "Songwriting is extremely vulnerable and revealing. It's somewhat of a musical diary. Every song has a story behind it, as if to say 'Here is what I have felt, lived through, learned from, and what I have celebrated'. When I am ready to share that memory with my fans it is an incredibly special moment."
Ever since her childhood, Louise has had her share of illnesses. Not only was she frequently sick, she ever suffered through a near-fatal sickness. She also knows the feelings of loneliness and emotional pain, having suffered emotionally throughout her childhood and adult life. However, it is during these times, she found faith and courage in Jesus Christ. She goes on to say, "I've frequently shared about God's grace, forgiveness, and acceptance, and yet those are things I'm still learning to grasp for myself. It's very humbling and moving.
