Christopher Owens "Stephen"
Published May 01, 2014Christopher Owens is ready to have in you in tears with his latest single, a gospel/country-styled tribute to a young life gone all too soon, which he's called "Stephen."
The song starts off as heart-breaking as they come, with the former Girls leader and a soulful choir singing atop a traditional piano arrangement about a beautiful baby not long for this world, taken at the age of two. As the song sidles into a strummed-out country shuffle, Owens gets biographical on the track, discussing his early family life as part of the Children of God cult and the death of his younger brother, Stephen.
You'll hear him wax nostalgic about the early tragedy down below.
