Caleb Ige  
"Loving Life"

My name is Caleb. I am ten years old. I have a dream of being a music producer. I used my piano and my dad’s Garageband software to create the song last year. I had a vision to create songs so I said why not create other songs so I started to watch tutorials and learn how to use other DAW like cakewalk.

 

SYNC:  What is the story behind the song? How did the idea start and develop?

 

David:  "People started to bully me but I said no way and I specifically wrote this song to help me have faith about what ever I am going to through in my school. So everyday I would write a lyric down and borrow my Dad’s laptop. Line by line I would record my song I also started a bit beginner but in the end I think I love my song."

"Loving Life"

You are not a nobody  
Just sing this song and come with me
No matter who you are 
God created you and me

You are not a nobody  
Just sing this song and come with me
No matter who you are 
God created you and me

I may be from Africa
And you are from America 
No matter where you are 
God created everywhere

You may think you’ve lost it all
because of what you’re going through
no matter what you’ve lost
God is going to see you through

You may think you’re nobody
But everybody’s somebody
You are who you are 
Created in God’s image

You may think you’re nobody
Because you are sick in your body
In crises or in pain 
God is always there for you

You are not a nobody  
Just sing this song and come with me
No matter who you are 
God created you and me

 

SYNC:  Did you write the song in order to bless or help anyone or any group in particular? If so, who and how?

Caleb:  "I actually wrote this song for myself and those who have lost hope."   

SYNC:  How does your song fit with the core idea of SYNC, which is that God is working a plan and we are SYNCing our lives with his work?

Caleb:  "God loves us and he came to give us life. He sees everyone as equal and we must be like God by treating everybody equally."
