Recorded live in California with an orchestral string section, Kim’s highly anticipated second solo album gives new meaning to the phrase: ‘extravagant worship’.
Five years have past since Kim released her first solo album, ‘Here Is My Song’. The second track, ‘Waste It All’, is a testament to her growth as a song writer and worship artist. The song captures a biblical expression of worship, found in John 12, and beautifully transfers it into song.
“I’m gonna waste it all on you // I’m gonna pour my heart's perfume // I don’t care if I’m called a fool // I’m wasting it all on you.”
In the English Dictionary, ‘waste’ is described as: "to use carelessly, extravagantly, or to no purpose." When Mary poured expensive perfume over Jesus’ feet, the room was filled with the sweet-smelling perfume as an extravagant display of love. This extravagance is found and expressed in ‘Waste It All’, as Kim pours out her worship.
‘Still Believe’ is the only song solely written by Kim herself. She explained the songs creation in a promo video:
“This song came bursting out really quickly as if it was always in there waiting to come out. The message of the song is saying: ‘I still believe you are the God who heals, despite anything I may be facing or the mountain in my way.’”
The title track of the album says it all – this album is soaked in 100% belief that God loves, heals and redeems us. Kim declares, along with those worshiping with her, that she still believes. This song will undoubtedly be used as background music in healing rooms, as a powerful declaration in charismatic congregations and as a comfort and strong reminder to those praying for healing.
Kim has an extraordinary ability to do more than simply sing into a microphone. She wears her heart on her sleeve and takes every opportunity to break into spontaneous worship. Kim’s ability to hit every note with perfection and passion make every second of the entire album a truly worshipful experience not to be missed.
