I (Helen) saw the video for “Light” by Gungor a while ago, but I recently listened to an episode of The Liturgists Podcast where Michael & Lisa Gungor shared more of their heart behind this song; the interview reminded me of how I was moved when I first saw their video and read their story, and made me want to share “Light” with you. On the podcast, the Gungors spoke about their beautiful daughter Lucie, or Lucette (which means “light”), for whom this song was written. Lucie was born with Down Syndrome and two heart conditions. On Youtube, Gungor describes “Light” as being written for her, and for “all the beautiful people on this planet with special needs. We think that you make this world a better place.”
“Light” is part of the first of three albums (entitled Soul) that comprise Gungor’s latest project, One Wild Life.
