Singing News and Singing News Radio select Praiseworthy Publishing’s “Runway Beautiful” as runner up in 2017 Songwriters Search. The song was written by Heno Head Jr, and Deborah Wolf as an encouragement to pregnant women everywhere who have contemplated abortion because of fear of abnormality in their unborn child.
“So often we look at what is beautiful on the outside, showcased on the Runway, and not on the inside. But as God’s children, even with our imperfections, we are all Runway Beautiful to Him. In the song’s story, this mother chose to have an imperfect baby, just as God “chose” to create us, with all our flaws and imperfections. We see God’s love through this mother’s eyes – when she rejoices in hearing the words “I Love You”, so God leaps for joy. Today, many struggle with their Identity in Christ. This song is a march down the runway of where our true beauty lies – and what defines our identity. Not being perfect, or gorgeous, in the eyes of the world, but precious, loved, cherished and adored children of the Most High God. “
