Back to the 90's

Another flashback Friday... Going back to the 90's again this week, I want to talk about The Kry, a Christian rock & worship band from Canada formed in 1992. They reached the height of their popularity in America during the mid-nineties. In addition to their invitational songs, ballads, rock music, and thought-provoking lyrics, they are probably best known for Cassie's Song, which was inspired by the Columbine shootings and it looks to God for healing and an explanation, while encouraging believers to be steadfast at any cost.

Their album YOU, published in 1994 was a huge success. One of the best songs on this album was Take My Hand which is a great reminder that we don't need to fear the future as long as we are following God. The song tells us:
Don’t live in the past, Yesterday’s gone
Wishing memories would last, You’re afraid to carry on
You don’t know what’s coming
But you know the one who holds tomorrow
I will be your guide, Take you through the night
If you keep your eyes on me

Interest in The Kry has recently gotten a bit of resurgence due to the Jeremy Camp movie, I Still BelieveThe movie features Jeremy and Melissa at a The Kry concert. In fact, their song Take My Hand is featured in the movie. In real life, as in the movie, Jean-Luc La Joie (lead singer of The Kry) is a close friend and a very important person in Jeremy Camp's life.

The Kry are still together and doing some touring but are not recording new music and currently spend most of their time evangelizing in specific regions of the world, especially French-speaking areas.
