James Fortune & FIYA's new project "Live Through It" has hit number one and is holding steady, according to the Nielsen BDSradio reported today with issue date May 17, 2014. It's been one week and "Live Through It" has quickly become the Christian's anthem song of hope. Fortune has seemed to hit a stride of pulling at the heart strings of many that are in need of encouragement amidst their circumstances.
In a world where so many horrific tragedies are taking place so many are looking for peace and hope. Recently, almost 300 Nigerian young ladies were taken into captivity. Violence is reeking havoc in our inner cities. Marriages are dissolving and children are being displaced because of parental rivalry. Unemployment is still prevalent and in extremely high percentages in minority communities. People are in need of a place to put their trust and hope. Music has been a tried and true outlet for the expressions of the heart.
James Fortune's new single "Live Through It" expresses the sentiments of the broken hearted. "God only allowed it because He knew you could survive it", Fortune recites. If you're looking for a source of encouragement, "Live Through It" is your song. For such a time as this, a song of this magnitude is here to help many make it through their current circumstances. Don't allow your situation to dictate to you the outcome of your life. The song lyrics says, "there is life after this is over". You must believe it and hold on to God's word. Purchase your copy of the single and entire project on iTunes.
Great testimonies are born through adversity. Mr. Fortune, has had his own. A very publicized legal matter regarding child abuse allegations overshadowed him. Apparently somewhere between 2012 and now, James Fortune has made peace with the speculations allowing him to pen such a tremendous song.
