For this week’s installment of Story Behind the Song, Our partners at What’s In-Store Music take us Behind the Song featuring Christian Paul’s “Strong.”

“The inspiration for the song came from the phone call I had with my mom where she broke the news to me that my stepdad was diagnosed with cancer. Her voice was shaking, and I could tell that she was trying to hold it together emotionally. In that moment, I told her that she had been strong for me my entire life; now it was my turn to be strong for her. I reassured her that if there was no one else that she felt like she could break down in front of, she could break down in front of me. Strong is really a song about carrying another person’s burdens out of love regardless of how heavy or unfavorable their circumstances or past may be. Thankfully, my stepdad is now in remission!”

“Strong” can be heard at many of your favorite places, thanks to Spectrio and What’s In-Store Music. In fact, the song is #25 on the What’s In-Store Music Currents, the ONLY charts that track In-Store Music!
