Evan Craft is no stranger to the KAMB listening family. With songs such as Desesperado and Be Alright, this Christian artist has become a familiar voice at our station, and we are pleased to introduce more of his music. As you scroll through this page, you’ll find out about his life, his career, and our take on his latest single, Fight On My Knees.
Evan Craft was 12 years old when he learned how to play the guitar. He began writing his own songs and performing soon after. As his music talents developed, Craft also dedicated himself to learning Spanish. His language skills enabled him to help his father run a homeless shelter in LA, and he later continued his linguistic studies in college. Craft enrolled in schools in Spain and Costa Rica and started writing songs in Spanish soon after. After the release of Yo Soy Segundo (2012), his first Spanish album, Craft traveled around Spanish churches, schools, and orphanages with some friends to share the evangelical message. As his passions for music, Spanish, people, and God continued to combine, Craft started posting videos on YouTube. By 2015, he had released an album, his EP Jovenes Somos (2014), and had translated his English music into Spanish. These successes coupled with his YouTube presence gave him opportunities to tour in churches and other locations across Latin America between 2014-2015.
Since then, Craft has released two other albums, Principio y Fin and Impulso, and has collaborated with many other Christian artists. He also continues to act on his passions for building community and reaching people. One way Craft does this is by dedicating resources to Mi Casa, a homeless shelter he co-founded in LA. Another is by writing new music that anyone who listens can enjoy. Craft’s latest release is his new single, Fight On My Knees.
Fight On My Knees
All of us encounter disappointment, frustration, and hardship throughout our lives. Often, we try to manage our emotions or take control of the situation even when there’s nothing we can do. Yet, even when we know that to be true, it’s still difficult to accept help. Fight On My Knees is Evan Craft’s way of reminding us where to turn when we face those battles. Rather than seeing prayer and surrender to God as signs of weakness, we need to remember that this is when God can most use us. This is when God can speak most clearly to us. In the song, Craft sings “Help me to remember, my help comes from Heaven / God, when I surrender, I find all I need”. Prayer isn’t admitting loss, it’s admitting that we need the One who’s greater to step in and help us. It’s choosing to turn to God rather than ourselves. And sometimes, it’s realizing that prayer for and of others is just as powerful. By entitling the song Fight On My Knees, Craft reminds us that this is the best thing we can possibly choose. Prayer keeps us close to God so that He can position us for His victory.
“Fight on My Knees reminds me that people have supported me in prayer throughout my life. So whether you or someone you love is far from God or needs prayer and support in a hard time, Heaven hears our prayers. Faith moves mountains, so let God fight your battle!”Evan Craft

[Intro] (I fight on my knees) [Verse 1] Sometimes we feel so lost, we think we'll never be found Sometimes we build our plans but then they fall to the ground You might not know it, but somebody's been prayin' for this very moment Feels like a whisper, but in Heaven it's loud [Pre-Chorus] Oh Don't give up, don't give up on the ones you love Oh Just a little faith is enough [Chorus] Help me to remember, my help comes from Heaven God, when I surrender, I find all I need Strength in evеry weakness, in the Namе of Jesus Oh, it's not a secret, I fight on my knees I fight on my knees [Post-Chorus] (Prayers go up) (I fight on my knees) [Verse 2] When I was younger, I was runnin' like a prodigal My mama prayin' every night that God would save my soul Even in the dark, He never ever let me go I hit the wall face-to-face with the Holy Ghost Where would I be without God's good mercy?

After listening to Fight On My Knees, we invite you to spend some time in prayer. Bring whatever is weighing on your heart to God and let Him lead you through it. In the song, Evan Craft also sings about the impact that prayer from someone else can have on a person’s life. This can be taken as a call for each of us to keep praying for our loved ones, and it can also lead us to ask for prayer from someone else. If you find yourself in need of prayer from a fellow believer, reach out to someone you trust. Whether it’s with a friend, a family member, or someone here at KAMB, lean into the power of prayer.

Zach Williams has been a rising star in CCM since the release of his debut album Chain Breaker. KAMB has gladly introduced his music to our listeners over the years, and we are excited to share more about him and his latest single Heart of God.
About Zach Williams
Before starting his CCM career, Zach Williams first pursued a whirlwind lifestyle of rock n’ roll. He discovered his talent for singing and songwriting in college while healing from an injury and eventually formed a rock band that took a toll on his life. He toured with his band, regularly used drugs and alcohol, lost his first marriage, and strained his second. Williams’ doctor even warned him that he could develop esophageal cancer if something didn’t change. However, it wasn’t until a bandmate started attending church that Williams made those changes. He and his family began attending the same church as his bandmate, and he rededicated his life to Christ.
While his commitment to the Lord was sincere, the transition into living a godly life was a challenge. Williams struggled to uphold his renewed commitments while on the road and ultimately walked away from his rock band. Upon returning home, Williams and his family began a fresh start. After spending six months as their church’s worship leader, he started writing new music for God. After leading a worship service one Sunday, Williams was approached by Jonathan Smith, a music producer and songwriter. After the pair talked, Smith invited Williams to Nashville. The two men were joined by another songwriter, Mia Fieldes, and the song “Chain Breaker” was written.
Around this time, Williams’ wife began sharing her testimony at prisons and encouraged him to do the same. After his first show for prisoners, Williams continued to return and released his six-song EP, Survivor: Live From Harding Prison. His long road back to the Lord and his experiences in both rock and Christian music have only strengthened Williams’ faith and testimony. He has received several Grammy nominations, has won an award for his single “Chain Breaker”, and has now released his second album entitled Rescue Story.
When I gave my life to the Lord, I realized He never left me, even in the dark times. For this new album, the title fits because every song in it has a rescue story. When you’re at your end of the rope, that’s when your rescue story begins. In my case, Jesus has been my rescue story.Zach Williams
Heart of God
Heart of God is the latest release from Zach Williams’ album Rescue Story. This song is all about shooting down the lies that are too easy to believe and finding the love that God has waiting for us. Through Heart of God, Williams reminds us that God sent Jesus for us. He could have let us rot in our sins, but He offered us a way out instead. While the lies tell us that God could never want us, Williams describes the truth that God specifically came for us. In both song and Spirit, the Heart of God is all about redemption and drawing us closer to our Father.

I know you're hurtin', I can see it in your eyes So pull back the curtain and take off your disguise Whoever told you, you ain't worth the fight The cross tells a story that'll change your mind 'Cause there's only love in the heart of God No room for shame in His open arms There's beauty from ashes, so come as you are And there's only love in the heart of God (Ooh) (Ooh) Come, prodigal children, it's never too late Run home to the Father, let Him clothe you with grace And bury your burdens, break free from your fear Step out of the shadows, there's no judgment here There's only love in the heart of God No room for shame in His open arms There's beauty from ashes, so come as you are And there's only love in the heart of God (Ooh) (Ooh) No, He's not sittin' there shakin' His head Writin' you off, leavin' you lost He's not sittin' there shakin' His head Wishin' He'd never went to that cross He's not sittin' there shakin' His head Writin' you off, leavin' you lost He's not sittin' there shakin' His head He went to that cross, He went to that cross 'Cause He loves you so much Ooh-ooh, yeah There's only love in the heart of God No room for shame in His open arms He makes beauty from ashes, so come as you are (come as you are) 'Cause there's only love in the heart of God (heart of God) No room for shame in His open arms There's beauty from ashes, so come as you are (come as you are) 'Cause there's only love in the heart of God (heart of God) 'Cause there's only love in the heart of God

We hope that learning more about Zach Williams and listening to Heart of God will encourage you throughout your day. All of us have experienced shame before, but we don’t have to let it rule over us because of Jesus. God loves us where we are and shows us how to pursue relationship with Him no matter what we may have done. He sent His Son for us because He loves us and nothing will ever change that Truth. As you listen to KAMB, remember that nothing can keep us from the Heart of God. You can find listening options for this song and others through our Ways To Listen and Where To Listen pages. God bless.
