Sacred Sunday: Mormon Pop Music

No, today’s music choice is not about The Killers or Neon Trees. Those are rock bands whose members happen to be Mormon. Today is about a singer whose music is poppy with very Mormon lyrics–Cherie Call.

She writes lyrics in a way that goes beyond a simple ABAB rhyme scheme. Telling the story is much more important to her than rhyming, and the result is just flat-out gorgeous lyrics. Makes me jealous.

I love this song and the stories she tells of the women far back in her family tree.
