Mosaic MSC returns to the Christian genre with an uplifting new worship song called “Fountain (I Am Good),” which Billboard premiers the video for today (April 3). The soaring ballad of hope marks the group’s first live recording since 2016 and their debut on Capitol CMG.
Mariah McManus, one of the band’s lead vocalists and musical director, penned the song in Wyoming with Brooke Figueroa and Colin Dennard. She explains that the trio wrote the inspiring “Fountain (I Am Good),” about kindness and “how healing it is for our souls. We wanted to remind people that there is goodness inside of them and that there is nothing that they could do that would make them unworthy of love.”
McManus adds that she and the band wanted a new narrative and fresh perspective as they embark on a new journey with Capitol CMG. “Especially now, when we are going through such a hard time as a humanity, this song for me is a reminder that God sees us as created in his image and likeness, created out of his goodness, and He declares us good.
“I love the pre-chorus [lyric] that says, ‘they heal to the bone, they’re sweet to the soul.’ It’s straight from this passage in the Bible,” she tells Billboard. “It talks about how kind words are like honey and the song is about the kindness of God and reminding us how he sees us.”
The video for “Fountain (I Am Good)” was shot at Mosaic, a church in Los Angeles founded by cultural pioneer and author Erwin McManus. It’s the first taste of new music from Mosaic MSC, with a new album expected later this year.
“Spreading messages of hope and peace with a focus on culturally relevant music is such a core part of who MSC is,” said Brad O’Donnell, co-president of Capitol CMG, in a statement. “We think this is a band and a record that the world needs right now. Capitol CMG is thrilled to partner with Mosaic MSC to help share their music on a global level.”
Mosaic MSC first rose to fame in 2016 after the release of “Tremble,” which spent 33 weeks on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart peaking at No. 19. The band was founded in 2011, and has toured the globe with Travis Greene and Chris Tomlin.
