About the album:
EXHALE, the seventh studio album from acclaimed multi-genre singer, songwriter and author PLUMB, expresses a new focus and vision. After the runaway success of NEED YOU NOW (the album, title track and book), which coincided with her own moving story of brokenness and ultimately healing, Exhale brims with worshipful songs of gratitude and hope.
The defining concept of [easyazon_link identifier=”B006W7L3TC” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]EXHALE[/easyazon_link] was born from a sermon at Plumb’s home church, wherein her pastor Pete Wilson expressed the notion that the Church doesn’t exist for itself. Rather, believers come to church to breathe in grace and truth, be changed, and then go out and “exhale” that hope into their surrounding community.
“That idea of exhaling hope hit me right away and I couldn’t get to the Notes section on my phone fast enough. I started writing the chorus of Exhale right then and there,” explains Plumb. “I have been made new by the ultimate hope, and I want to share and exhale that hope in everyway I can.”
I’m in awe with how beautiful [easyazon_link identifier=”B00V0F0T3M” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]Plumb[/easyazon_link]’s voice is to listen to. She has a voice that will move you just by hearing her sing regardless which song she sings on this CD. Although, I like all the songs on this CD with great pleasure, there are a few that really touched my heart.
Exhale really touched my heart because of my past. It’s a reminder that God’s love is still there for me despite my previous mistakes. Resurrection is an simple, but yet powerful testimony to her beliefs (as well as mine.) Broken Places has to be my favorite song on this CD though.
Broken Places is a song that could have been written by me in many ways. I have felt like a broken vessel many times in my life. I’m honestly still broken in many ways. I’m battling some pretty hard things right now, but I KNOW that with God’s strength I can overcome them. I know that he will restore me. He will make me better than I was before. This song is just remarkable!
