I often write reviews for Christian rap albums. This album is a little different to that. It’s Christian. But yo no rap! Deb Fung is an Australian-born Chinese singer/songwriter, with an acoustic/pop/ballad type of musical feel. Her latest album is called Selah. What the heck does ‘Selah’ mean? I’m not sure, but it occurs frequently throughout the book of Psalms in the bible, it’s possibly a musical term. That gives a clue to one of the things I love about this album: most of the songs are ripped straight from the Psalms. That’s cool. What a great way to get scriptures embedded into your head and heart!
My favourite songs are: Psalm 139 For You Created; Psalm 23; and Psalm 112 Righteous Man. Just like the Psalms, these songs enable the listener to stop and contemplate life and knowing God. This really is a beautiful album. So if you came looking for gangsta rap – this album might not be for you; but if you’re keen for stirring lyrics and comfort from the Bible by a talented artist – check it out!
