Blest is full of spiritual messages that reach out across the boundaries of religion and culture to the core truth that lives within all of us. Written and performed by Robert Akers, Blest is a unique blend of musical styles all interlaced with inspirational observations of the beautiful and miraculous nature of love. These songs feature lyrics that will stimulate your mind and at the same time will have you tapping your feet and feeling 'happy,' which is one of the signature tracks. Featuring Rhythm and Blues, Country, Folk, Pop ballads, Bluegrass, and even a little classical Spanish guitar, Blest is based upon the premise that all life is blest. Each song has it's own unique message, from Think Peace, a joyful and rousing tune with easy lyrics to invite all of us to 'help the dream of peace take flight', to Fly Free, a song of encouragement with a message that you can soar above anything on Spirit's wings, to the beautiful waltz of Three Quarter Time, which invites us all to slow down and enjoy the dance. Normally there are 10 songs on a CD, but there are three bonus tracks included on Blest: Wherever I am, God Is, a new rendition of James Dillet Freeman's famous poem complete with additional verses, Let Go and Let God, with a hand clapping rhythm and a powerful message, and Perceptions, with a bluesy beat that reminds us that the key to our experience of life is in our perception. As one review said, 'Blest will inspire your mind and bring joy to your heart.'
