Lifting open hands to you my savior,
beautify my soul…
“That’s my prayer,” says Rebecca. “I finally realized that I
have to rely on Him. Knowing that I’m not enough and that
I have to trust Him, is when I felt like He told me, ‘You are
He didn’t have to tell her twice.
Within the span of a few weeks, Rebecca will be releasing
her first new album in 5 years and making the biggest
commitment of her life—marriage.
Very simply, she was ready.
CCM sat down with Rebecca, who has been the voice of
purity and integrity for young women and girls throughout
her career at the top of the Christian music world, to catch
up on the music, the mentor and, of course, the man and
CCM: Well, obviously, we want to know all about your fiancé
and upcoming marriage. But… let’s talk music first. This album
is really a return to the worship music that began your career
so many years ago. Why deliver this album now?
Rebecca: I’m not someone who just hashes something
out because it’s time to hash something out. It doesn’t
feel organic and real to me. I’m very committed to being
authentic and real and showing up with my heart.
I could have put out an album a couple years ago, but it
wouldn’t have much of me in it. The timing wasn’t right. The
timing is so right now. God has given me very certain things
to say that I didn’t have two or three years ago.
CCM: After delivering pop hit after pop hit, what was it that
compelled you to deliver not only worship songs, but new,
never-before-heard worship songs?
Rebecca: Worship really is my foundation for music. On
my first tour, when I was 13, I was doing worship music.
After listening to a lot of my fans, we kept hearing that
they wanted fresh worship songs, not just another worship
album that’s my version of songs that they already know.
There are only two covers on the album and eight new
songs that I helped write.
