(August 31. 2021) Strength can find its source from a variety of places. Sometimes it is the result of going through a trial, other times it can be from seeing someone else experience a battle. It can also result from both external and internal conditions. Having strength can help to keep one focused on the task at hand and see it through to the finish. On singer/songwriter/actress Capathia Jenkins' latest single, "I Am Strong," she is able to summarize the evolution and personification of strength rather effortlessly.

It can also result from both external and internal conditions. Having strength can help to keep one focused on the task at hand and see it through to the finish. On singer/songwriter/actress Capathia Jenkins' latest single, "I Am Strong," she is able to summarize the evolution and personification of strength rather effortlessly.

Written by Maurine McFarlane in response to personal challenges within her life, "I Am Strong" is an empowering anthem that is cleverly arranged to help tell a story. During the verses, Jenkins acknowledges that situations may come along and disappointments may happen, but with God's help and one's self determination, victory is the ultimate prize.  "Darkest storms can't tear me down, I'll hold my ground, I will rise. Despite my tears, I am confident. It doesn't matter the state I'm in," is a lyric taken from one of the verses that helps to illustrate the peaks and valleys during tough times.

It is here that Jenkins leans on her Broadway chops and provides a vocal delivery that reinforces the power and depth that the song holds. By the end of the track, the perfect sonic storm of vocals, musicianship and emotion is felt, and leaves the listener feeling ready to conquer anything that rises up.

Check out "I Am Strong" and be reminded of how messages in music are so important and so needed.
