Cassandra Jenkins has covered Eartheater’s 2020 song ‘Faith Consuming Hope’ for Sounds of Saving (SoS) and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Jenkins performed the song and talked about mental health in a new episode of the ‘Song that Found Me at the Right Time’ series. Watch it below.
“Music has always been a primary way for me to connect my mind and body, before I was ever consciously thinking about how important that connection is for my mental health,” Jenkins explained in a statement. “At the most basic level, music is a conversation between those two aspects of our experience, and when I’m performing, that dialogue includes everyone around me. More and more, when it comes to my mental health, singing is one of the most powerful tools I have to engage my nervous system in a way that harnesses a sense of safety in my body, which in turn allows me to move through my emotions and the world more freely. And the more I can hold that space for myself, the more I’m inviting other people around me to do the same.”
Jenkins issued her sophomore album An Overview on Phenomenal Nature earlier this year. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with Cassandra Jenkins.
