For the past two and half years, Leanna Crawford, has been writing, touring, and singing with some of the biggest names in the Christian music industry. She’s gained more experience than many artists do in a decade, and while her music certainly displays the vocal and songwriting talent of a rising star in CCM, her grounded and honest lyrics make her feel more friend and confidante than star, more approachable than untouchable.
Leanna says “I hope listeners feel that I care about them even if I don’t know them, and that they would feel loved and encouraged.”
“Mean Girls” is featured on Leanna’s self-titled six-song EP debut. Sharing the message of the song, Leanna explains, “The words we use are powerful. Some words can build people up while other hurtful words can tear down. Sadly, we’ve all experienced the latter and it’s those words that we just can’t seem to get out of heads no matter how old we are. I wrote this song as a prayer for myself but also for you because sometimes we need to be reminded that our worth is so much more than words.”
