Since making his country music debut in 2001, famed singer and tv personality Blake Shelton has wowed listeners across the globe with his easy-going character and sultry voice. However, this 2016 video is something truly spectacular.
It seems that not even celebrities are immune to heartbreak and messy personal lives – when Shelton wrote “Savior’s Shadow” he was going through a highly-publicized divorce while also revealing his affair with Gwen Stefani to the world.
With lyrics like “though the devil try to break me, my sweet Jesus won’t forsake me,” Shelton shares the beautiful reminder of strength and resilience that buoyed him during these trying times. And it’s a message we all could learn from.
Shelton doesn’t need anything more than an acoustic guitar to strum in this black-and-white clip to give us goosebumps. This is one performance by the country crooner that we won’t soon forget.
