Belgian singer-songwriter Asarela reflects on all things God in her debut album, “I Believe.” “It is my prayer that, as you listen to this album, you will discover the goodness of God,” she said in a release. “That you will find new strength and new hope. I believe it will bring healing to you in the areas of your life where you need it most. I pray that you may discover that God is faithful.” The music provides energetic pop and some quieter tones too. Asarela’s voice is powerful, rich, and inviting. The opening song, “You Never Give Up on Me,” grabs the listeners’ attention quickly with a melody that sticks, while declaring God’s care. The title cut offers a soothing ballad and says in part: “’Cause I believe you never change / I believe you are always good / Even if I cannot understand your ways / I believe that you are who you say you are / I believe you’re always good.” This recording supplies a large portion of comfort and reminds one that the Lord is firmly in control.
