When Lissa first heard a recording of “Wake Up Dancin’” by Gordon Mote, she knew she wanted to add it to her live repertoire.
“My friend Aaron Brown gave me a copy of the song, and I fell in love with it,” she recalls.
The song is about a grandfather nearing death who is consoling his grandson. “Dying is not always a bad thing — it can be freeing,” Lissa says of the song’s message.
While in Nashville last December, Lissa went into Turner-Up Studio and recorded a live performance of the song, which was also filmed by director Bill Filipiak and videographer Stephen Shiveley.
You can view the live-in-the-studio performance below.
