BURLINGTON, May 17 – Crossroads has collaborated with some of Canada’s best in
Christian music to release a song that highlights Canada’s faith roots for the nation’s 150th anniversary. Soul-stirring and catchy, “This Far by Faith” is a ballad penned by industry veteran and vocal powerhouse Kevin Pauls (Canadian Screen Award Nominee, multiple award-winning artist) as a musical tribute to Canada’s rich faith heritage. The song is a call to action for all Canadians to hold strong to the beliefs that have been foundational to the free democratic nation we have today.

Kevin reflected on the process of bridging the history and exciting future of Canada’s faith community through song. He shares, “I got together with Joel Parisien (JUNO Nominee, NewWorldSon lead singer) and Rich Moore (NewWorldSon, The Tenors) to write ‘This Far By Faith’. “We dreamed how we could talk about our faith and celebrate our country. We wanted to reflect on the sacrifices of those that came before us too. We are the True North Strong &Free…there is a lot to be proud of.”

‘This Far by Faith” made its national debut May 8th on 100 Huntley Street, Canada’s longest running daily talk show. A music video was created that features the beauty of Canadian scenic treasures from coast-to-coast. You can watch the music video and download a free mp3 of the single via thisfarbyfaith.ca

Crossroads CEO Lorna Dueck said, “Crossroads is excited to share with Canadians a song that truly captures our national spirit. This sesquicentennial anniversary of Canadian Confederation is a time to affirm care for our country and each other with a love and pride that is rooted in gratefulness to God.”
