Singer and songwriter Audrey Assad has released a new single entiled "Mortal." The song is not only Assad's favorite composition, it also speaks of our need to embrace life and its beauty.
Assad writes: "My favorite I've written in years, and the only one I've finished in the last 9 months, more or less. 'Sometimes you feel like you're on fire but you don't even know where it burns. How does it feel to be mortal...'"
