Sarah Kroger Reveals Why She Decided to Cover "What a Wonderful World"

Sarah Kroger

Worship leader and singer-songwriter Sarah Kroger has delivered her own soulful version of the standard, "What A Wonderful World." The song a statement as to what can be expected from Kroger's newest creative exploration as she gears up to a new EP early in the new year.

Kroger shares her thoughts about the song. "To be honest, there are many days that the world doesn't feel all that wonderful to me. It's a broken place full of broken people, myself included.

"But I've always loved this song. It has a way of shifting my perspective from what's wrong to what's still good. It reminds me of things that make life glorious, hidden in plain sight. Trees of green. Skies of blue. Watching a child grow. Relationships. Days and nights, again and again and again. Wonders to be found in the mundane. We live in a broken world, and yet there's still goodness to be found. I hope this song reminds you of that. May we each do our part to make this world a little more wonderful." 

"What A Wonderful World," despite not being a standard church song, is full of the artist's love for Christ and his endless beauty expressed through her sweet and crisp vocals gliding a stunning stripped-back soundscape. Though not being labelled as a worship song,"'What A Wonderful World" is an articulation of the human experience in which people from all backgrounds, be they religious or not, can hopefully recognize themselves.

The new single is a song of hope and wonder through which Kroger desires to encourage people on their personal journey. Her upcoming project is a "meeting of the streams" moment where every song speaks to where the singer-songwriter has been, but also to where she is and is going. Kroger's new version of this classic reinforces her heart to serve the Global Church with songs to sing over people, while providing a musical balm that challenges, uplifts, encourages, and comforts all who hear.
