Jacques & Liezel sing about The Creator of The Universe in Heart-Moving new song
“Despite all the bad in our country, it doesn’t take much to just turn our eyes to all the beauty around
us, and notice the greatness and breathtaking handiwork of God in creation,” says Jacques and Liezel
on the inspiration and meaning behind their new single, NIKS KAN VERGELYK.
According to this talented duo, who walked away with three Afri-Indie Independent Music Awards last
year, and were nominated again this year for three awards at this year’s awards night in April, this
spiritual track was written to give listeners a fresh perspective about the greatness, goodness and
Holiness of the Lord. “As Psalm 104 tells about creation and that words cannot describe God’s
greatness, so this song tells about the universe singing His greatness! In the storms and even the
whispers, He is there”, says the duo.
“One can so quickly see the ugly with things like load shedding, corruption and insecurity in South
Africa, which sometimes makes us feel so discouraged. We want to encourage people to see the
beauty again, what we do have like family, a God who undeservedly, always loves us and who gave
everything for us on the cross. Who is there like Him? Even if we wander or get lost, He always comes
to get us. Because nothing can compare to Him,” say Jacques and Liezel.
Their latest release was produced by Jattie de Beer of Artistry Productions and will also be
accompanied by a beautiful music video, shot by Jirus Gonzales. This music video portrays the lyrics
perfectly with the most beautiful nature scenes – all that sings of His greatness!
