Author of My Life, written in 2012, was birthed by Imani Shola as many of Imani’s songs are – by playing around on the piano, finding an intriguing chord progression, and putting heartfelt words to the melody.
The song is an unapologetic declaration of love and admiration for God, to God. It is a statement of faith in His power and gratitude for His love. Shared initially on her YouTube channel in 2017, the acoustic version of ‘Author’ proved popular, with Imani’s subscribers noting its ‘juicy’ melody, ‘beautiful’ lyrics and, ‘stunning’ sound, with many saying they wanted a copy.
Through passionate harmonies, resounding metaphor and even a multilingual line, the song seeks to be an anthem of submission and love poured out to our Heavenly Father.
