Stacie Orrico Review

Stacie Orrico

The first song I ever heard from Stacie Orrico was “Stuck” – never even realized she had an album prior to her self-titled one. It was summertime and I was listening to this catchy sassy pop song on the radio. It seemed very appropriate, given that I was in high school at that time. She is, actually, a year younger than me which made her really relate-able.

As with many artists, like Katy Perry, she started out as a Contemporary Christian & Gospel artist. This helped her gain her ground in the industry.

“(There’s Gotta Be) More to Life” seemed to be a typical “follow your dreams” inspirational pop single. I always liked the video idea of having her play different characters to show some unity of feelings/thoughts among many different types of people. Unfortunately, it is harder to find the official video for this song on YouTube. I did find a cool remixed version of it.

From the surface, Stacie Orrico seemed on the same level as other pop stars of the 90s and today. To be honest, there were songs, other than the ones being played on the radio, that I prefer of hers. If you have not watched her YouTube video of her performing “Strong Enough” live in Japan, you have not seen how talented she really is.

I actually have a soft spot for this song, because I was in a near-fatal car accident, several years back, and that song got me through some very tough times. You can just feel the emotion and expression behind that piece. It is easy for me to see why “Strong Enough” reached #1 as the CD’s very first single.

She was nominated in 2004 for the first time at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards in the category “Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album”. Even soI believe Stacie Orrico was highly underrated as an artist in America. I think her name should be just as big, if not more, as the bubble gum pop artists of the 90s like Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears.

Please let me know what you think about Stacie Orrico.
