‘Purpose’ is the lead single from Joan Mercury’s debut album called Mercury Rising. This song is a great showcase for the beautiful vocals of Joan Mercury. Using her personal life as an influence for her album means that ‘Purpose’ was written from the heart. This song discusses that when you are at your lowest you need to be able to look at yourself and remember that you have a purpose. This song has a message of hope that has the potential to help listeners understand that life is worth living. Joan states that even if she helps one person with her music, for them to realise their worth that would be gratifying. Personally I think she will help many more. Joan’s vocals are soulful and I love how every word she sings is meaningful. Take a listen here.
