Unhindered in its focus to communicate, this album’s fundamental core is worship. In tracks such as,“Meant to Last”, we find a poetic exploration of the ceased search for love after beholding Jesus. Heartfelt anthems like, “Power In The Cross” and “Our Salvation” declare the truth of the Gospel delivered with a fresh sound. The title track, “Real Love” captures the heart and soul of this collection with sincere depth, Derek invites us to embrace this love like never before. This album is an easy fit for your Sunday morning set-list or your personal devotion while being a beckoning call to those still searching for real love.
