THANKFUL - Tosin Oyelakin [@TosinOyelakin]
Thankful is a song that recounts the good things God has done and encourages listeners to be thankful for life, salvation, and for being counted worthy to be a child of God.
Tosin got the inspiration for Thankful from a place of trying to find reasons for being thankful on the morning of her birthday last December.
Due to difficult circumstances and the death of a dear one, Tosin initially felt at a loss for what to thank God for. However, Tosin felt prompted to dig deep for reasons to be thankful, and out came the lyrics of this song. Thankful's release on December 3 coincides with Tosin's 2016 birthday which also is a milestone for her.
This mid tempo RnB gospel track is sure to get you nodding and grooving while being Thankful to God for little things we tend to take for granted.
Thankful is a track following on Tosin's debut EP 'You're Precious' which features songs that combine contemporary RnB sounds with deeply inspirational words aimed at bringing comfort and healing to all those who are in need of it.

Do you know the Father, what he's done for me
All His blessings are forever sure
I'm overwhelmed by His loving kindness
Always been there when I had no clue
I am thankful for the gift of life
I am thankful that I know the Son
I am thankful You're my present help
I am thankful that I'm your child
