Similar to Grant, the Christian/mainstream crossover band Switchfoot are also releasing a song a day led by frontman Jon Foreman.
“When words fail and I can’t seem to find any answers for the storm surrounding me, I pick up a guitar. So this week, we want to give you a song a day,” Foreman said on Monday.
“I don’t have the answers, but I do know that love and melody can remind us to have hope, and to be kind to one another,” he added. “Music has always been there for me. I hope you can find some comfort in it too. Love to you and your family — stay safe out there”
He stressed that “love is a force that cannot be silenced,” and encouraged everyone to lean into God through the storm.
“The communal experience of playing music is a huge part of why we do what we do. Unfortunately at this time, physically gathering together as a community doesn't seem like a wise decision. Social distancing is crucial during this time when we are trying to keep this deadly virus at bay. And yet, human contact is truly what makes human existence worth living. This distancing from our loved ones and the world outside is a loss for humanity as a whole. And let’s be honest about our loss; there is a void in the world today,” the band said in a statement.
As Forman performed the band’s song, “Let Your Love Be Strong” he admitted that the national quarantine has been convicting for him, showing him the simple things in life that he has taken for granted in the past.
