“My Life Has Been Changed” – Virginia Aires

“My Life Has Been Changed”
Virginia Aires
Dove Records (2017)

The latest single by the Virginia Aires features lead singer Charles Stanley evoking the vocal playfulness of Rance Allen by shifting abruptly from falsetto to bass and from legato to staccato.

“My Life Has Been Changed” describes the mental, physical, and spiritual changes brought about by salvation. It benefits from a traditional rocking chair tempo, Roberta Martin-esque transitions, and a live audience.

Stanley really rustles the audience when he shouts, “I’m so glad God gives second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth chances!”
