What Would You Do This Year If you had No Fear?
Artist: Jana Stanfield
Reviewer: Sue Riley
Jana Stanfield is a master at walking her talk. In the past couple of years, she has embraced the theme of “no fear” by putting on hold her life and career here in the US and traveling the world. Wow….that is what I call following your own calling. “No Fear” naturally reflects where Jana is in her life, and it sounds like a great place to be. This is a 2 disc set, like many of her cds. Disc 1 is full of songs about change and taking that first step. One of my favorites is “George Bailey”, named for the Jimmy Stuart character in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life”. With a catchy beat, and great lyrics, Jana states that she isn’t willing to wait for the perfect time to seek out her perfect life; a great theme for 2010. “If I Had no Fear” asks the listener to imagine what their life would be like if they only sought what they most desired. It’s an interesting idea.
I have found that many of my own decisions are based on the “fear of what if”….time to re-evaluate that question! “True Calling” is a catchy world beat song about being able to recognize your own true calling in life. Jana finishes the CD with a wonderful remake of Daniel Nahmod’s powerful song “Bring it On” - another song about embracing change. I used songs from “No Fear” and Daniel’s “Time for Fire” CD for the entire month of January. They are all accessible and right on the money with their musical message. CD 2 of Jana’s set is a dance mix of “trance-formational” songs designed for repeated listening to help you stay brave, do good and feel better. With driving rhythms and great beats, these musical affirmations will start your day off with gusto. This is truly an enjoyable CD from a master artist and it will be a great blessing to your music ministry.
