"With ‘Tears,’ I set out to capture the essence of both the beauty and rawness of our shared human experience, in joy and in pain. My hope is that this song carries a sort of simple permission for us to feel, process, and embrace the healing that comes through the God-given gift of tears." -Matt Hammitt
