Week of K.I.N.E.T.I.K.: K.I.N.E.T.I.K. - The Grace of God
The Grace Of God
When it comes to making music, two of my main objectives is to make people think as well as spark debate. I knew by exploring the concept of religion in this particular song, I'd be taking a risk because it's a challenging subject both to to discuss and truly understand. Many of us continue to struggle with religion; me included.
When writing this song, I wanted to walk the fine line between atheist and believer and just touch on my experiences in the religious system. When I was growing up in Church, I believed and accepted everything I was told but during my natural maturing process I began to question some of the things I had been "taught" and I realised that the whole concept of "getting closer to God" is a very personal one. Like I say at the end of the song; "religion or relationship, take your pick".
Despite the controversy this song caused, it really made some people think about their faith in God or the lack thereof and for that reason I believe the song is successful.
I've been told by a lot of people that this was the song that really made people pay attention to me and began to appreciate my story. Plus the fact that I had the audacity to shoot the video in a church makes the message even more powerful.
