"I Will Live and Not Die" - Darlene McCoy
RKD Music 2011 (single available online May 17, 2011)
Gospel singer-songwriter Darlene McCoy’s new single, “I Shall Live and Not Die,” is evocative of Evanescence with its layers of sound, McCoy’s breathy vocals and a minimalist but insistent piano riff. It’s a lovely, haunting and ultimately inspirational performance about the personal victory to be won in tossing away one's fears and accepting Christ.
It’s also a superb post-Easter single, fit for gospel and CCM charts. And for those of you who are runners, the song’s mantra, “I’ll finish strong” will keep you moving towards your goal.
In addition to singing, writing, and ministering, McCoy hosts “The Darlene McCoy Show” on Atlanta’s Praise 102.5.
