Singled Out: The Rev's Testify

The Rev

Today Christian Music star The Rev tells us the inspiration behind his single and music video called "Testify". Here is the story:

The single "Testify" was written during a dark moment in my life. During that time I lost my job, my car was repossessed, and I experienced a devastating divorce (2nd marriage); which forced me to move back to my home town. During this horrific moment, I was extremely depressed and could not fathom why I was having such bad luck. After giving my all to my former place of employment and a romantic relationship which I thought would last forever. I was literally left homeless, and had to move in with family until I was able to get back on my two feet.

The feeling of shame, and rejection, left me senseless. As a result, I medicated my pain through drinking and other activities that was contradictory to my spiritual upbringing. So I prayed and asked God to please open a door for me to find a job. After going through numerous job interviews. I was finally able to secure a position at a lockdown juvenile facility.

It was tough for me to maintain that position because I needed a car to get to work. So I had to borrow my mother's car, until I was able to save enough money to purchase my own vehicle. After a few months of saving, I was able to purchase my own car, and later was inspired by the kids I worked with to record the song professionally. For me, this song is about surviving tough times, and persevering until the storm of life subsides . Originally, I wrote the song to help me therapeutically. But the more people heard it, than it became part of their life story. Everyone in life has either been, or presently going through, a tough circumstance. Yet, the inspirational message behind the single "Testify" was written to tell whoever is reading my personal testimony to hold on and be strong, and no matter who or what is against you, the creator of the Universe has the last word.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video here and learn more about The Rev right here!
