Griffith’s original song “Reconciled” is featured on the albumSAMSON: SONGS FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE MOTION PICTURE released by Dream Label Group and Pure Flix Entertainment. “Reconciled” features Joel Kibble of the multiple Grammy® award-winning group TAKE 6 on lead vocals and is backed by G.Favored’s vocal ensemble MUSITRY.
“’Reconciled’ is an emotionally charged ballad that encapsulates Samson’s story through an intimate conversation between Samson and God,” says Griffith. “The song has a universal theme and highlights the anguish and pain that is felt when we are separated from God because of our sin, as well as the joy and gratefulness that is experienced when God redeems, restores, and reconciles us back to himself.”
The poignant track is strikingly orchestrated and produced by highly sought-after producers and musicians Melvin “Maestro” Lightford (Kirk Whalum, Danny Gokey, Travis Tritt) and Darius Mines(Snoop Dogg, Little Big Town, Family Force 5). Watch Lightford, Mines, Kibble and Griffith talk about “Reconciled” in their special “Behind The Song” video:
