Following the release of “Letting Go” in January, PLG artists Switch announces the release of their latest single, “Covered.” Both singles will be on the group’s upcoming album, Better View, Part II, releasing March 11th. Sung by Switch member Cassidy Estevez, “Covered” is an upbeat song that describes the lightness we feel when we put our trust solely in Jesus.
“The song reminds us that we don’t have to know all the answers to know that Jesus has us covered,” said Estevez. “Even in the middle of uncertainty, we can find freedom when we choose to trust God’s plan for our lives.”
