Laura Story - Blessings (Cover by Kirsten Wong & Javin Tham)


Blessings is another Christian song which you won't probably hear in church, sung by Laura Story. It's mentioned and sung by Kirsten when we're jamming. It just sounded so familiar to me as I could hum the subsequent melody in the chorus when she started singing, I must have had heard it somewhere else. My guessing terminates at the realization of Justin's sharing of this song to me when I paid a visit to his room the other day. I was even handed the lyrics of the song while listening to it, and I really think the lyrics are meaningful and touching especially to those who've been longing for God's mercy and grace.

This song is sung by a female vocalist, harmonized by a male vocalist and accompanied by only piano and pad (effect), which makes the cover of it very doable and just nice.

I immediately downloaded the song and synced it into my phone after we did the cover of Shadowfeet, kept myself preoccupied with listening to the song to familiarize and prepare myself for this new cover.

We're in black while recording the cover for the blackout movement as a sign of protest after the blackout incident during the 13th Malaysian General Election on 5th May 2013, one day before the cover was recorded.

It took me a lot of editing work for this cover which I love a lot. Hope you enjoy it. And it's my last cover before I graduate from NUS. God bless!
