Acclaimed Bethel Music worship collective singer/songwriter kalley returns with her first brand new single after the death of her daughter. On December 14, 2019, kalley's 2-year-old girl Olive died in her sleep. After a season of grief, kalley is finally back with "This House." The official lyric video can be viewed below.
kalley reveals, "After Olive [my daughter] died I said I wouldn't write/sing/release music again, and had no idea what I'd say first if I did. Fast-forward and I'm excited to say I have a couple corporate worship songs coming later this fall. They are ripe and it's time.
"But I felt I needed to release this song first as a single, because this came first. The memories, the quiet, the grieving, the unbearable vulnerability, the hollow rooms, the aching for laughter again. Because that is sacred too. God's in every room, inhabiting all of it. Hello's are holy, so are goodbyes. We must learn to find Him and find ourselves in both."
A veteran member of the Bethel Music worship collective, Kalley Heiligenthal also serves as a second-year worship pastor at Bethel's School of Supernatural Ministry. Co-writer of the popular praise anthem "Ever Be," which was nominated for a 2017 Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year, Kalley's "Every Crown" is featured on Bethel Music's latest Dove-nominated, best-selling compilation VICTORY. She is part of "The VICTORY Tour," hitting 10 cities across the country this fall.
