From the first sound of the opening chords of the guitar and the way the piano blends together with the synthesizer, one can already get a sense of peace and calmness. As I listened to Andrew Farstar sing "Day By Day", it produced an atmosphere of inspiration and encouragement. Together, the heartbeat like drums, the choir singing in the background, and Farstar’s silky smooth voice is what makes this song so unique and not like your typical gospel hymn. This song is not only interpreted as a prayer but it’s also a worship melody to God from the heart.
Farstar did the cover version of this popular hymn which was originally written by Carolina Sandell who suffered the loss of her farther. As I listen to the words of this song I begin to feel and understand the depth from which this song is written. ‘Day By Day’ also has a special place in the heart of Farstar because like Carolina, he too lost his father several years ago to an illness. Therefore, it has a profound effect on him because he has experienced the fear and pain. Often, tragedies have a way to remind us that we must put our trust in God daily. When Farstar heard this beautiful hymn, he decided to break away from tradition and sing it in a pop style.
