There are many different types and genres of music. There is good, edifying music that delights the soul, then there is music that is dark and depressing that tends to drag us down.
It was Johann Sebastian Bach who said, “Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.” Those agreeable harmonies can be found in the music of three sisters, ages 14 to 16, musically known as Hinge Point. Listening to their music is a pure joy and delight to the soul.
They introduce themselves on their Facebook page by saying, “We are three sisters ages 14-16 and we love to sing and make music together. We sing covers and write our own originals. Our music is uplifting and peaceful and we hope that it will bring a spark of joy to your life.”
Recently the trio wrote two awe-inspiring songs based on talks given in the October 2020 general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One of the songs, “See Deeply,” is based on Sister Michelle Craig’s talk titled “Eyes to See.” The other song is called “Keep the Change” and is based on Sister Becky Craven’s talk titled “Keep the Change.”
So, how did this amazingly talented trio decide on the name Hinge Point for their group? They explain, “After Covid hit last year and everything was shut down we didn’t really know where we fit in to everything. We realized that things that seemed important before were fading and that our focus was changing too. We felt guided to officially start our singing group and focus our music on Jesus Christ. There had been lots of references to hinge point and we all felt like that name would be perfect. It was a literal change in focus and direction.”
Hinge Point and their music can be found on Facebook, YouTube, Amazon Music, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, and Instagram. Their new four-track Country EP is titled “Life is Good.” The titular song was inspired by President Russell M. Nelson’s general conference talk titled “Let God Prevail,” which reassures us that even when life sometimes seems out of control, if we allow God to prevail in our lives, everything will turn out alright. The other three songs on the album are “Lift Me Higher,” “See Deeply,” and “Keep the Change.”
Hinge Point is making their indelible mark on the world by allowing their light to shine through their music — music that is inspirational, uplifting, and soul satisfying. In the words of the English writer and politician, Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer–Lytton, “Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies.” That is an accurate description of the music of Hinge Point.
