Saturday 13 January saw the launch event for Lou Fellingham’s new album. In a packed venue with a carefully chosen band that included singers and a brass section, Lou commanded the stage. She was joined by some well-known singers to duet on some of the songs; this all contributed to the party atmosphere.

The concert showcased the new album Never Stop Loving, which is a strong set of new songs written by Lou and Nathan Fellingham but also had a liberal sprinkling of some of their “golden oldies”.

Lou is one of those naturally chatty people who intersperses the songs with interesting bits of information about the creative process of writing the songs. Inspiration has come while cooking in the kitchen and on the chair lift while skiing.
What I have always liked about Lou and Nathan Fellingham songs is how they are so down-to-earth but manage to lift worshippers’ hearts to heaven.

I have enjoyed listening to the new album, which has a strong range of tunes and lyrics in its 11 songs. The title track is a big anthem that invites the singer to delight in the God who loves us with an everlasting love that never lets us go.

There are simple songs like the opener O Come let us Adore Him, and substantial theologically rich songs like Lean in that helpfully guide the worshipper to trust in the sovereignty of God.

For me the standout track is Abba Father. It beautifully captures the wonderful joy and privilege it is to call the Creator of the heavens and the earth our Father.

“What a moment in history
What a moment when Jesus taught us to pray
‘Our Father, Our Father.’”

What a moment indeed! Thanks Lou and Nathan for another uplifting offering.
