Positive Vibes Only: Pop Singer Madison Watkins Hopes For A Movie-Like Love In Emotive "Someday" Performance

In her episode of Positive Vibes Only, Arkansas-born singer Madison Watkins delivers an affecting rendition of her single "Someday," a hopeful ode to her future love

GRAMMYs/Mar 6, 2022 - 11:00 am

"I hear stories of love like in the movies/ But they're never about me/ Am I doin' somethin' wrong?" Madison Watkins ponders in the opening lines of her 2021 single, "Someday."

While the first verse may not seem sunny, Watkins' moving song is actually one of hope. And judging by the way she passionately delivers the tune in her episode of Positive Vibes Only, she's more optimistic than lovelorn.

"I know that you're out there waiting just for me/ All that I imagine, like a vision from my dreams/ How long is forever 'cause that's how long I'll wait/ Just to spend forever here with you someday," Watkins belts in the chorus.

Fans of American Idol may recognize the Fayetteville, Ark. native, who finished in the Top 12 of Season 19 last year. Watkins has since released two singles through her own Mad Wat Productions, dropping "Someday" in November.

The singer further showed her hope for a lifelong love upon releasing "Someday," penning a note to her future husband in an Instagram post about the song. "Without knowing it... you are helping so many heal, have a new hope, and search for a love that is healthy and whole," she wrote. "I can't wait to show you this song one day while we are dancing in the kitchen laughing about how desperately we wanted to meet each other one day. I love you so much already."

Watkins' Positive Vibes Only episode arrives just before her first 2022 single, "Lose To Love," which she'll release on March 9.

GRAMMYs/Apr 15, 2024 - 03:39 pm

Contemporary Christian trio Selah has found liberation from their anxieties thanks to the power of their newest song, "Higher Name" released on March 22.

Despite grappling with sorrow, pain, and doubt, they have found a path that consistently offers them freedom and security. In this installment of Positive Vibes Only, Selah delivers a stripped-down performance of "Higher Name," with Allan Hall playing the keyboard while Amy Perry and Todd Smith sing on the track. 

"No higher name/ That's worthy of praise/ That can free us from our chains," Selah declares in the chorus. "Author of faith/ Your kingdom reigns/ Jesus, The Name above all names/ You're the one that we proclaim/ The eternal God who saves."

Beginning April 19, Selah will perform a string of live shows, including the Singing in the Sun Festival in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and appearances at the 40 Days and Nights of Gospel Music at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky.

According to their artist biography, Hall says, "From the beginning, our words have been comfort and encouragement, and I don't think that has ever changed as a part of our mission... God has let us take the gift of music and share it and do something that could help someone.

Positive Vibes Only: Stars Go Dim Encourages You To Be Fearless With A Performance Of "Live Like That"

One-man band Stars Go Dim unveils the freedom you'll find when you "see yourself through Heaven's eyes" in this inspiring rendition of his 'Grace In The Wilderness' B-side, "Live Like That."

GRAMMYs/Apr 1, 2024 - 05:00 pm

Everyone has low points — moments of feeling "unworthy, not good enough," or "like you won't ever win." But as Christian pop rock singer Stars Go Dim suggests, if you "see yourself through Heaven's eyes," you will become the most fearless, unapologetic version of yourself.

"Would you open up your broken heart/ Show them who you really are/ Leave your regret in the past?" Stars Go Dim (aka Chris Cleveland) questions in the chorus. "You can live like that."

In this episode of Positive Vibes Only, Cleveland delivers a moving performance of the uplifting track, sitting at a piano in a serene outdoor setting.

"Live Like That" is a B-side from Stars Go Dim's 2022 LP, Grace In The Wilderness, which also features two of his most notable singles, "Authority (In The Name Of Jesus)" and "Satisfied." As he revealed in an Instagram post upon the album's release, "This music represents me as an artist more than any other music I've ever released."

Stars Go Dim is currently on the Authority In The Name Of Jesus Tour alongside The Band Table. The trek is named after his single "Authority (In The Name Of Jesus)," one of two tracks that Stars Go Dim released in 2023; he also released a collaboration with Nigerian Christian singer Chidiya Ohiagu, "Already Blessed."

Positive Vibes Only: Terrian Reveals The Power Of "God's Acceptance" With An Uplifting Performance Of "He Sees You"

Contemporary Christian music singer Terrian delivers an acoustic rendition of "He Sees You," a powerful track from her newest album, 'Give It Time,' that celebrates the greatness of God's love.

GRAMMYs/Mar 11, 2024 - 05:03 pm

Everyone could use that one person who loves them unconditionally, even at their lowest points. Contemporary Christian singer Terrian found that exact solace as "a child of the living God."

"I'm not perfect/ Even at my best, I don't deserve Him/ When everything's a mess under the surface/ He never makes me feel ashamed," she reveals in the opening verse of her track, "He Sees You." "He sees everything that you're gonna be/ He's healing every lie you believed/ He sees you."

In this episode of Positive Vibes Only, Terrian delivers an uplifting performance of "He Sees You," a track from Terrian's newest album, Give It Time, released on Jan. 26 via Gotee Records.  Supported by a group of background vocalists, an acoustic guitar, and a piano, Terrian's stripped-down rendition helps drive the meaningful message home.

"I've been living with open hands and trusting the Lord's timing. That's what this whole album is about — waiting," she explained in a press statement. "Waiting can be hard, especially when things aren't going the way you thought they would, but at the same time, it's been eye-opening. I'm grateful for the time to figure out who I am as an artist."

On March 13, Terrian will be playing a one-night show in collaboration with Unplugged Concerts at the Mockingbird Theater in Franklin, Tennessee.
