Jehovah Knows by: Lionel Peterson
Art has been known to inspire several people in the manner in which it expresses feelings and the emotions that such art creates in people. Music in particular is known to empower people in several ways. Some religions such as Christianity have used music to preach the gospel to thousands of people in the world. One such kind of music is Jehovah Knows by Lionel Peterson.
In the video, Lionel performs the song to thousands of believers in a congregation. The song is set in such a manner that Lionel solos most part of the song a choir harmonizes along and sings the chorus. The song also incorporates several acoustic instruments and blends in a harmonious rendition. What is most empowering about the song is the lyrics used. This is a Christian song about the faith of a believer who knows that God knows the troubles one faces. In expressing this, the song has used appropriate lyrics with very good diction to articulate the message. Lyrics refer to hard times such as war and dangers and even in these times, the singer finds peace in Jehovah. Additionally, singers in the choir are seen to really enjoy the song. Art has been employed in the way the harmony is done to allow good renditions. The flute has also been used in most part to augment the soloist.
Coordinated movement has been employed to improve the songs general moving message. The choir moves in this coordinated manner and produces good motion. This song seems to express the feeling that this singers actually believe in Jehovah and this comes out at the end of the song. At this point, the song turns from accompanied to an acapella to ensure that the motivation message of finding peace in Jehovah reaches its audience.
