Tara’s Music

Music is a big part of Gracie’s Girls. Gracie’s eldest daughter, Tara, is a singer in the band, Angel Awake. On this page you’ll find the lyrics to the chorus of one of Tara’s original songs, I Praise, and a list of all songs mentioned in the book.

I Praise by Tara Barrett

I praise the sound of trumpets, to raise her from the dead.
I praise the clashing cymbals, to pulsate against her lips.
I praise the sound of timbrels, to resonate upon her skin.
I praise the lyric’s intention, to proclaim her voice within.
