Behind the Songs With Stellar Kart…
Adam Agee shares the inspiration behind “Rescue,” from Stellar Kart’s newest project, Everything Is Different Now:
“The lyrics shout out the fact that God is our hope and rescue. This song is a celebration of the fact that when we are saved, no power can stand against us. Energetic and upbeat, this is a song you can sing out at the top of your lungs for the whole world to hear.” Adam Agee
