Singer/songwriter and morning drive-time radio host Perry LaHaie’s high-energy remix of “Amazing Grace (Send Me)” [Frerichs Remix] now has a hit lyric video that has streamed 58K and garnered 36K views in six weeks.
“I got the idea for ‘Amazing Grace (Send Me) [Frerichs Remix]’ from Ezekiel 47 and Zechariah 14, where the river of life is flowing out of the temple into a barren world,” explains LaHaie. “This river calls us to drink the free gift of the water of life. And then it calls us to jump into this raging river and be swept up in its current to offer living water to the world. Working with the team of Levmusic in Tel Aviv, Israel, we’ve tried to capture cinematically this raging river of grace and our call to be swept up in it.”
“Perry’s ‘Amazing Grace (Send Me) [Frerichs Remix]’ is both a beautiful reimagining of the classic hymn and also a compelling re-invitation to the heart of God,” says Kevin Winebarger, Producer/Promoter at Courage Studios. “Perry has sought after the Lord for years and now what God has poured into him is impacting people around the globe.” LaHaie adds, “My prayer is that this song will move us to go to our neighbors and to the nations and do for others what Jesus has done for us.”
The single was originally featured on LaHaie’s much-lauded album, Him. This time around, the song gets a grab-you-by-the-shirt-and-won’
LaHaie’s reimagined version of the world’s most beloved hymn, “Amazing Grace (Send Me),” [Frerichs Remix] remains faithful to John Newton’s original vision, but with a compelling twist as LaHaie urges listeners to share God’s amazing grace throughout the nations. This grace is so amazing / it’s for the world, not only for the few!
“My hope for this remix is that we’ll reach an entirely new audience; that the message will be written on the hearts of each person who hears it,” says LaHaie. “And that every person who hears it will be brought into a deeper experience of the gospel, and that it will compel us to be part of bringing this grace to the nations.”
