Iryne Rock is an inspirations/Christian artist who offers songs that will renew your soul. With a style of music and vocal performance that captivates fans of multiple genres, Iryne opens spiritual hearts as she invites listeners to deeply connect to her music and message. A firm believer in the word of God, Iryne gave her life and musical purpose to Christ. From an early age, she has been involved in choir singing where she developed her vocal and songwriting skills. Currently, Iryne serves as the Youth Pastor and Worship Leader at her local church in Maryland. Her song "Let It Rise To You' is a great example of the power of Iryne's music.
Warm and upbeat African poly-rhythmic percussion introduce Iryne Rock's bright and soulful vocals in her inspirational song "Let it Rise to You." Her heavenly praise will uplift you in gratitude for God's grace. Iryne and her co-songwriter and Producer Billy Smiley created a dynamic arrangement and creatively produce an inspiring song using symphonic and West African instrumentation. Including a mbira, a West African finger harp, flute, and trumpet to play embellishments throughout the song which is ingenious.
There is a slow build-up to the chorus as the choir breaks out in tight harmony as Iryne sings the memorable melody. A well-conceived horn section adds an R & B flavor and proclaims the words with bravato.
“Let your praise
Never cease from my lips
Let the sacrifice I give
Let it rise to you,
I’ll worship you forever
I’ll give to you forever
I’ll worship you forever
I’ll live for you forever.”
Sometimes in life, you don’t get what you want, but you do get what you need.
