St. Louis native rapper, Thi’sl delivers with a driving, spirit-filled, “turn-it-up-to-eleven” thumper called By Your Power. Fellow rapper Hulvey joins in the fun, on a song that draws heavily from Zechariah 4:6 that you can’t do life on your own might or strength, but only through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Thi’sl knows some difficult times. He grew up fatherless in a rough West St. Louis neighborhood, kicked out school, and led a drug-focused life in the streets. BUT GOD, being rich in mercy, made his life new. At that’s when he began writing songs/raps centered on the beauty of Christ. It is only through His power and grace that we are called out of darkness into marvelous light.

Even when Thi’sl was the victim of an attempted robbery and shot in the leg while visiting Washington DC four years ago, Thi’sl continues to show the strength of the Lord in his music. By Your Power draws elements from Thi’sl’s past and how the Holy Spirit brings hope. The song reminds us that no mater how hard your days become or it seems that God is nowhere to be found, it is God who carries you through. God is never any less true. God is the only thing worth trusting because his love for us is never-ending. (Also be listening for Thi’sl other new song on the MEL. It’s an amazing stone-cold groove about looking yourself in the eyes and asking God how is it between us? It’s a song about waking up.
