Live Through It
The album was inspired after Fortune experienced a tumultuous year. The weight of his assignment began to take its toll on his life when the Lord gave him the word, "live through it".
Fortune explains at the height of his career that he experienced pain and ridicule. It was during this time that he began to write the lyrics to the title track. Staying true to his signature style, the song has become a street anthem as millions have already connected to the message.
For his first live album, Fortune and FIYA headed to Atlanta to record live in front of a sold-out crowd at the Word of Faith Church. Thousands had to be turned away as the expectations were high.
With guests Tasha Cobbs, Kierra Sheard, Israel Houghton, and Isaac Carree leading songs, Live Through It looks to become one of the top albums of 2014. Don't be surprised if this album racks up during award season as Fortune digs deep and breathes new life to contemporary praise and worship.
The two-disc project showcases FIYA's clear show stopping vocals and melodic lyrics. Songs you definitely want to get loaded on your iPod are "We Give You Glory" which features Grammy-winning Tasha Cobbs and "Let Your Power Fall" featuring Zacardi Cortez, which will take you to another level in worship.
FIYA members Carvena Jones and D'Shoundra Rideout give impeccable tones on "Just Smile", a very simple but powerful ballad that flows nicely with the theme of the album. Songs such as "Built For This" will quickly be added to your workout playlist with its infectious beat and melody.
The album offers something for everyone, and will lift your spirit and heart. Fortune states that the album is testimony, and he's lived every song on the album. With gratitude he presents, Live Through It.
