This CD has been a long time in the making. However, it was worth the wait. This CD represents a departure for Kenneth in that his previous CDs are either cover tunes, or songs written and sung entirely by Kenneth. In God Balances Lives CD, although he has written all of the songs, 3 songs are markedly different:
- “You Are My Life” in which he sings a duet with Sharon Marion
- “You Are My King” in which he wrote this song but is sung by Roxsanne Pollard an up and coming young Gospel artist, and finally
- “Lord Give Me Faith” in which he sings the song, but shares co-writing credits with (the late ) Carolyn Granderson. In addition, Glorify & Magnify was originally written for Carolyn as well. This song has a similar theme – that is to Glorify and Magnify the Lord in the midst of your struggles. The theme throughout the CD is: Keeping your faith strong in the Lord.
Some of the backstory behind Lord Give Me Faith -tells of the struggle we all have at times trusting in God. Especially hard , are the times of trials and tribulations we all go through. Specifically, Lord Give Me Faith, is a song written about Carolyn’s struggle with her terminal cancer and her faith and trust in God. Although Carolyn lost her battle with cancer, her faith in God was ever present, even in the end.
We learned alot about living and keeping faithful to God, by Carolyn’s life and death.
In addition to dedicating the CD to Carolyn, we also do so to a dear friend who passed in March 2013, Ray Minnifield. He lived each day with joy and love. We will always remember how he had time to help his friends, family and anyone else. He will be missed.
