Britt Nicole: All this Time

February 29, 2012

About the Song:
Released:
2012
Writing
Credits: Britt Nicole, Ben Glover and David Garcia
Label:
Sparrow Records
Genre:
Christian Pop
Debut:
My Thoughts: it was by “accident” that I stumbled across
this artist’s works shortly after she appeared on the Christian music circuit,
and I’ve followed Britt’s music career after that – and what an impressive one it
is turning out to be in her young life. Her 2007 debut, Say It was a combination of bubbly cheeriness and the depth of a
young teenage Christian, and I truly enjoyed her songs. This single, the first
off of her upcoming third album Gold, is perhaps her best song yet.

What is
always evident with this artist is the emotion in her voice whenever she sings
a song that goes deeper than mere entertainment. “All this Time” is a
beautiful demonstration of that. I’ve heard both the audio track and seen a
video of Britt performing this live at a radio station, and both versions come
across as effortless while invoking thoughts the joy of a new life in Christ
might bring. The song tells a story of a young girl remembering meeting God for
the first time in her pain, and His faithfulness since then, never leaving her “all
this time.”  

The song is like
an anthem to remind Christians that God never leaves us – in our sorrow, pain
and happiness, He walks with us, no matter what. It is one that is hard to get
out of your head because it is masked by feel-good beats and a voice that is
easy to listen too, but underneath, the message is more than a pretty thought. Here
is a brief quote from an interview Britt gave about the song’s meaning:
All
This Time’ is the story of how I met Jesus,’ says Britt. ‘It’s a reminder that
whatever we face in life, we don’t have to face it alone, because Jesus
promised to never leave us or forsake us.’ 
Once again, I
am eagerly anticipating another artist’s upcoming spring album – this will, in
all likelihood be just one of the jewel’s among Britt’s Gold album. A+ song from a wonderful up-and-coming artist – check it
out.
The Lyrics: From
the first tear cry /…it was You and I / You’ve been walking with me / All this
time

    Raquel – she is such a cool Christian artist. I don't even know a lot about her like I do RSJames or some others but I LOVE her music – she seems to have such a heart for God and I applaud that because even in the Christian music scene that is sometimes rare.

    Oh! That is o.k., Raquel – just know that whenever you can, I always appreciate you adding your thoughts/comments here because I enjoy your input. And, although I am not sure if I've said it or not but, I love your blog, also. You have posted some excellent things. Your kind remarks are greatly appreciated about my blog – it makes it so much more fun to know that what I write about is read and hopefully, my readers get something from my ramblings. I do try. ;D

    Juju – do check her out! I just love Britt's music. (You can hear this song on my 'tag' post from today if you were wanting a "sample" of her music. =)

    Her hair does look really pretty in this photo shoot – she used to have an edgier, shorter haircut and looked cute then too. =D
