Music of "Morning Star" Calls Nation to Unity and Faith on Fourth of July

Share Article

The music of the "Morning Star" has a message of inspiration and hope.

Soaring eagles, majestic rivers, the sunrise, George Washington, and the Alamo are all images painted by the music of Phil Mitchell’s album the “Morning Star.” People of faith built this nation and we should greet the lighted path that God has always placed before us. We should not be afraid to make difficult decisions.

Phil starts off the album with the song “Come with Me.” The early settlers came across a vast sea to the shore of a distant land. They prayed morning and night so that they may arrive safely. Many Americans left a distant land to start anew.

George Washington led the nation out of fear to a more steadfast plain. Phil calls the listener to remember this man that helped forge a nation and the ideas that he represented. Kristen Freilich sings the song.

“By the River” takes the listener on a journey of majestic beauty. Our lives are like the boat, not always sure of where we are going. We go back and forth looking for a safe shore. Jack Miuccio sings the song.

The album also tackles the issues we face of loneliness and trying to find God in difficult times. The song "When the World Seems to Fall" offers hope when things seem bleak. Life does not always turn out as we had hoped. We are all broken vessels and the light of faith can help us feel complete.

This is a marvelous album and maybe what this nation needs. Listen to the music and you will find yourself in a different place and your heart filled with joy. “The Trolley” is one of my favorite pieces as I can picture how people used to come together for a fun ride and to talk.

Phil finishes the album with the piece “And Love.” Maybe, this is where Phil wants to leave us- in a peaceful place. Who are we as Americans? Where are we going? What is our common heritage and history as a nation? This album brings it all together and calls us not to forget.
