This release from the folks at Birmingham's Cedar Church offers up Jesus' death on the cross as the solution to all of our worries regardless of the situation we find ourselves in. Once again written and arranged by Andrew S Kisumba, valuable truths about Christ's sacrifice and resurrection are presented with a catchy refrain and a pleasing vocal performance from an unnamed female singer - set to the backdrop of a delightfully boxy and upbeat dance track that fits the bill perfectly. Kisumba and crew add a dash of humour amidst genuine life problems with lines like "Are you tired of kung-fu fighting/Take it to the cross" and although there is a slight melodic similarity to Queen's "The Show Must Go On" in the verses, this is yet another individualistic and accomplished release from the team at Cedar Church. An original demo version featuring Kisumba on lead vocals plus a couple of backing tracks are also included.
