One of my favourite musicians is undoubtedly Xavier Naidoo. He’s an absolutely amazing artist, does inspirational music (also member of “Die Söhne Mannheims“), and woohooooooo: a Christian! Most of his songs can be likened to the book of Ruth: he sings about God/Christ and uses a lot of Scripture, yet hardly ever uses the word “God” itself. He is a very popular contemporary German artist and I absolutely and totally enjoy his music. I’m sorry for it being in German, but listen and be blessed anyway (there’s a bit of English in them too).
Three of his/their songs..
1. Freitheit (Freedom)
It’s about freedom, what it means.. and why it’s so important. It’s about working together and achieving success as one (unity- humanity). It’s about respecting boundaries in order to live together peacefully; about being honest, truthful, helpful, and respectful. It’s about being there for the other, yet allowing the need for personal space. It’s about recognizing freedom on all levels and in all its varieties.
2. Das hat die Welt noch nicht gesehen
This song is about the love of God the world is yet to see/ understand/ accept/ appreciate. It talks about His invisible yet invincible love; and the need to embrace it.
3. Bitte hör nicht auf zu träumen
The last one talks about holding on to your dreams and the belief that with Him and time, things will get better. It’s about hope, faith, and love; working together to make this world a better place. It’s about recognizing every individual has a role to play and that the little good you do, does indeed go a long way. It’s about recognizing your worth and appreciating yourself and others for it. Only then will this world be a better place to live in.
