Ron­dell Pos­i­tive re­leases new song at 2018 launch of ‘Heart Praise’

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

RON­DELL POS­I­TIVE re­lease his lat­est song, Stress­less Dance, at the launch of the ninth stag­ing of Heart Praise Wor­ship Fest, at the Courtleigh ho­tel on Tues­day.

“The inspiration for Stress­less Dance is my 1-year-old daugh­ter Reign, who is ac­tu­ally fea­tured on the song. She is such a joy­ful child, and she has no stress. One of the things I learnt from her is that this is re­ally how we are to live. We are not sup­posed to be bom­barded and weighed down by every­thing that is happening around us. We are ac­tu­ally sup­posed to be liv­ing life, know­ing that we are go­ing through life and we are not stag­nant. Even Jesus in­vites us to come to Him when heav­ily ladened, and He will give us rest. So why we full up a stress?” said Pos­i­tive.

He also out­lined the fo­cus for the 2018 stag­ing of Heart Praise Wor­ship Fest, and will be en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one who at­tends to take on this stress­less at­ti­tude and re­lent­lessly pur­sue their pur­pose.

“I have learnt so much from the joy and life of my daugh­ter, and its re­flected even in this year’s stag­ing of Heart Praise. We want ev­ery­one who at­tend to leave know­ing that pur­pose is call­ing. There is a rea­son that you’re still here. There is some­thing that only you can ful­fil, and we want to tell that to the world.”
