“When Stu approached me about The Beatitudes Project I was stoked,” remembers McMillan, who later connected with Stu to write “Heaven Is Around Us” together in his hometown of Charlotte, NC. “The song started to form about the meek and this idea that the things that are blessed are not always what we think are blessed….
