Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and former member of the Georgia House of Representatives, teamed up with Emmy award-winning entertainer Kathie Lee Gifford to release a new inspirational single titled “Your Way Yahweh.”
Released by Radiate Music, “Your Way Yahweh” was written by King and produced by Ian Eskelin.
“In a day where chaos and uncertainty are abundant, I wanted to write a song that brings people back to the foundation of who God is,” King, a prominent pro-life activist, shared in a statement with The Christian Post. "I long for people to know God and to experience the incredible greatness of living a life built upon His foundation.”
The 67-year-old Gifford and 70-year-old King came together for this collaboration by a “chance encounter.”
“What a joy to be invited to join Alveda on such a worshipful and hopeful song,” Gifford said. "She is a treasure and a beautiful sister in Christ.”
King said the collaboration “shows us that we as people can come together.”
“Now we just have to really learn how to say, ‘your way, Yahweh,’” King stated. “Are we going to stop doing it our way and start doing it God’s way?"
King sings in the first verse: “Call His name and find salvation/Call His name/Call His name today."
Gifford sings in th second verse: “Forgive our sins and heal our land/Oh Lord redeem us and sets us free.”
“Have your way Yahweh,” they both declare in the song’s chorus.
King, a 2021 recipient of the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award, currently serves as a host of "Alveda King’s House" on Fox Nation, where she actively speaks up for freedom of speech and religion.
Her duet partner, Gifford, was recently awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for work in the film and entertainment industry.
The ceremony was held virtually and streamed online. Several of Gifford’s friends were guest speakers, including “TODAY's” Hoda Kotb, singer Dolly Parton and comedian Craig Ferguson. After receiving her star, Gifford thanked God and her longtime fans.
"I don't see you, but I sense you with me, because you've been with me all these decades in this incredible industry, and you have rewarded me in so many ways with your faith in me, your prayers for me, your love for me,” she said.
“I look back on it in awe and wonder that God blessed me so much to be able to make my living doing what I love to do, which is what my daddy taught me. But more than that, that you all stayed with me through everything, every trial, every tribulation, every joyful moment as well,” she said.
The new single, “Your Way Yahweh,” is now available online.
