Tenth Avenue North's Mike Donehey has released a new song called 'Glory I Couldn’t See' taken from his forthcoming debut solo album, 'Flourish', due to release August 27, 2021.
"I called the album Flourish after a song I wrote early on in the pandemic last year. I wanted to raise my fist and raise my voice in sharp defiance of my circumstances. I wanted to remind my heart that true flourishing isn’t external but internal. I wanted to remind myself that though heaven and earth gives way, Christ remains the strength of my heart and my portion forever. I cannot wait for you to hear all 11 songs on this album, due to release August 27, 2021.
The song that releases today, Glory I Couldn’t See, is about the moment I realized I was playing the victim. Angry and sad over cancelled tours and plans, I sat down to write this song with my friends Andrew and Chris. From the first line I started to cry. I knew we were on to something special. As it turns out, this song became my anthem for months. I’m ecstatic to finally share it with all of you. I pray it serves as a cry to not let the valuable lessons we learned in 2020 to be lost as we rush back into “normalcy” in 2021."
