As The Queen hardly shied away from sharing her faith, Christian artists are celebrating the life of Queen Elizabeth II and her legacy.
Matt Redman shares his thoughts on the Queen's legacy after news of her passing on Thursday, September 8, 2022, after serving England and the Commonwealth for 70 years.
"In an age where character no longer seems to be king, I’m so grateful that this steadfast, faithful and dedicated follower of Christ was our Queen. I join my voice today to the millions of others mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II and celebrating her inspiring legacy. May she rest in peace and rise in glory."
For King & Country, a Christian band made up of brothers Luke and Joel Smallbone for Australia shared their thoughts.
"If you’ve ever worn a priceless necklace from one of our shows, you’ve been inadvertently impacted by Queen Elizabeth II’s life," says For King and Country. "Not only was she our queen and the queen of the British Commonwealths, but really a queen for the generations."
The Smallbones reminisced about their past trip to Buckingham Palace back in 2016.
"Her steadiness, her grace, and her love for Jesus seemed to always shine through, and radiates through the legacy she leaves behind."
Tasha Layton, the Christian artist of 'Look What You've Done' and 'How Far' shared her heart for the monarch.
"What an incredible life of duty, faithfulness and devotion," says Layton. "She was such an inspiration to me even from the time I was a little girl. Integrity, dignity… not growing weary in well doing. Rest In Peace."
Layton, originally from South Caroline, was also once a backup singer for secular singer Katy Perry before branching off on her own to create Christian music.
