Music Monday #7 (I Believe)

We are back with our Music Monday selection.  I missed posting last week, but am excited to post our song from today.

I introduced the song "I Believe" by Yolanda Adams.  I first heard this song last year during an episode of the X-Factor.  The young singer Rachel Crow sang it and I feel in love with it immediately. 

The lyrics are quite powerful and send a wonderful message to the listener.  The song comes from the movie Honey.  I have not seen the movie, but after listening to this song and seeing clips of the movie, I do hope to see it one day. 

As soon as I played this for the class today I could tell that they liked it.  We had a wonderful discussion about the message of the song and what it meant to each of us.  The writers also enjoyed watching the video.  I've included several different versions of the video below.  My students watched the one from the movie and the clip with Rachel Crow from the X-Factor.
