“Singing with me on this song are two friends of mine, Brett Young and Cassadee Pope, who are both incredible artists,” Chris said in a statement about the song. “What I found out about Brett, like many of the artists on this record, is that he was brought up in the church leading worship in his youth group. All those incredible harmonies you hear in the song, that is all Cassadee Pope. I am so grateful that they are both on this song with me because I really feel that their hearts reflect the idea of the song.”
Chris also spoke out about “Be The Moon” on social media, and the significance behind the tune.
“This song is ALL about what it means to be the moon,” Chris also shared on social media. “The moon is not striving to be anything, it just puts itself in the right place and reflects the light of the sun.”
Brett and Cassadee both praised Chris for including them on the inspirational song.
“I’ve been such a huge fan of Chris Tomlin for so long! I grew up leading worship and that’s how I found music,” Brett shared. “To be asked to be a part of this project was such an honor and this song is so special and hits very close to home for me.”
“As soon as I heard Chris’ story behind the album concept I was drawn to it,” shared Cassadee. “Getting to harmonize with both he and Brett on this song was really special!”
“What I have said to each artist that is on this project is that the idea behind, ‘Be The Moon,’ is the heart of this record,” says Chris. “The moon is not striving to be anything; it just puts itself in the right place and reflects the light of the sun. It’s the same for us, we have no light of our own but reflect a greater light, the light of God. This is the essence of Christianity.”
