GPT on OPC: Building 429, "Glory Defined"

Every Tuesday on 106.7 Home Radio, we have special programming that takes us back to the not-so-distant past. We call it Guilty Pleasures Tuesday, where we play songs from 1995 to 2005. So here on this blog, I'm borrowing that concept to bring you GPT on OPC. And today, let's rewind ten years ago, when I discovered this beautiful track called by Building 429, a band whose name was taken from Ephesians 4:29 which says: "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." (NIV)

To know what song I am talking about, check out the band with this 2009 performance of "Glory Defined" at Air1 Radio below (you can also watch the song's music video here):

Here is what I then had to say about Building 429's "Glory Defined":
"This is my current favorite song, and will definitely be on my all-time favorite list. Although this ain't exactly a new track, it's just now that this song has made it to my consciousness. Well, better now than never. Anyway, the instant I heard "Glory Defined" today, I loved and felt the song and its message! The band has immediately won a new fan in me! It's a very nice song to sing to God!"

Today, I am still a fan of the band, and my list of favorites from them has even expanded! Some of these are: "Fearless," "I Belong to You," "Always" and "Where I Belong," as well as my super fave, the very powerful "Right Beside You" featuring Fireflight's Dawn Michele, which hit #1 on this blog's chart in 2012. Their song "Impossible" also hit #2 earlier this year. For more of this North Carolina band, go to their official website or their iTunes page.
