You may know Jackie Hill Perry from her phenomenal poetry, messages at events or her personal testimony in the media, but the artist has been in music for some time. With the new release of her sophmore album Crescendo, Perry doesn’t shy away from issues and adds her faith as the foundation of her sound.

Jackie Hill Perry released a new music video plus a behind the scenes look at the making of the album. Perry shares how her life and sound is different compared to her last musical project, Art of Joy in late 2014. Back then, she was a new wife and mother to be, resided in Chicago, and was still learning and growing in her faith.

Now she resides in Atlanta with her husband, Preston Perry, their precious daughter Eden, and another child on the way. The growth is a continued process for this woman of God, who’s unique balance of confidence and humility shine from her inspirational posts on Instagram to her lyrics.

You can get a sense of where Jackie is going with her message on the recently released video for “Lamentations.”

“I wrote half of this song two years ago and the other half this summer. It’s a lot of words with a lot of meaning… listen well…it might bless you,” Jackie Hill Perry shared about the song and video when it released earlier this month.

Perry talks about “Lamentations” and the inspiration behind the entire album in this video:

Crescendo is available now!  It has 12 tracks and two interludes with features including Joseph Solomon, Ambassador, Shai Linne, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Braille, plus the track “Fall Away” featuring Natalie Lauren.

I’m personally waiting for a video to drop for her track “Woman” with artist Sharon Irving.
