Dove Award-winning, Grammy-nominated artist, Michael Farren got his start in Christian music as a founding member of Pocket Full of Rocks. As a songwriter he has written hits like Lauren Daigle's Trust In You, Reba McEntire's Sing It Now, Michael W. Smith's Let It Rain, and Phillips Craig & Dean's Let The Worshipers Arise. Fighting For Us is his debut solo project. The title track is a collaborative effort with Krissy Nordhoff.
"We wrote 'Fighting For Us' while I was weeping at my desk," Michael Farren explains. "Krissy and I were supposed to be working on another song but all I could get out that day was that... and I've never needed a song more."
He was going through a season where he was wrestling with what he believed God was asking him to do. "In 25 years of writing songs," he continues. "I have never clung onto a song as my own... but this was different. This song was the thing that kept me believing that He loved me. I kept singing it until I believed it."
He hopes this song will reach others who need it as much as he did in that time. Just because he writes from a point of desperation, that doesn't mean we need to stay there.
