The single was recorded in Nashville, TN, with Dove-nominated producer, Brent Hendrich. Risa Kopp, the mother, is an award-winning songwriter, (John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Independent Music Awards,) and Lilly Kopp, the daughter, is pursuing a degree in Commercial Music at Lipscomb University in Nashville.
“Light of the World” was written by Risa and Lilly, as well as another daughter, Abigail. The song is cinematic in feel, characterized by soaring vocals and dynamic instrumentation.
“We are “terce.”, a mother/daughter duo based out of the Nashville, TN, area. Our primary focus in our music is to create a song that conveys the message of the Gospel, and to show people who God is,” the duo explains.
The pair went on to share, “Our sound is a mash-up of roots music stylings and art-pop, piano-driven riffs in songs about God and, even better, to God. We desire healing, deliverance, and revival to come from our music. We long to see a harvest of souls. We want people’s hearts kindled to burn for Jesus.”
Terce, in the conventional sense, is the third hour of traditional liturgical prayer. It is also the hour that the Holy Spirit descended upon those gathered in the Upper Room on Pentecost, according to the book of Acts.
