Pop singer LeAnn Rimes describes her new album as a journey to reconnecting with God

by Alex Collett

Award-winning country singer LeAnn Rimes, best known for her hits like 'Can't fight the Moonlight', is describing her latest album 'god's work' [sic] as a journey to reconnecting in her faith with God.

Speaking to Forbes in an interview, Ms Rimes said: "I kind of ran away from God for a long time."

Ms Rimes said she struggled to understand how allowing God to work through people makes for a better world.

In the interview she said: "I was raised Southern Baptist, and my frustration was we're brought up with these messages of love, acceptance, community and forgiveness, but no one's living them to the fullest."

She says she hopes her new music will help bring people together by offering "hope and healing."

"God can mean different things to different people. To me, it inserts the word 'love,' the word' 'creation'

"I saw somewhere where people were saying 'It's called god's work, so it's a religious record.' It's whatever it is to you."

"Art is so subjective, and we project upon what we hear through our own experience. Whatever it moves in you, whatever you hear, that's what it is."

Ms Rimes explained that the "lowercase 'g' in the title for the album 'gods work' represents the duality of this record and where humanity meets spirit."

She went on tour this summer, during which she performed her most popular songs including 'How do I live?' and some new music from the latest album

Commenting on the performances she said: "When we played 'god's work', it's like we turned the whole audience into a choir, and by the end, they were all singing 'We are god's work' then applauding afterward. I think it's empowering."
