Frank Gilchriest says about “Rise Again”: “I began writing Rise Again during the pandemic shutdown. I felt a strong desire to compose a song that would honor and pay tribute to the world’s heroic battle against Covid 19. The process also helped me cope with the loss of my mother who passed away from the virus in late 2020. My hope is that this song will lift the spirits of anyone who hears it especially for those going through a difficult time.”
