Is This the First Electronic Dance Music Video by a Catholic Priest?

Fr. Rob Galea - published on 04/20/16

"Breakthrough"

We’ve been fighting for so long. Now the victory is won.

Is This the First Electronic Dance Music Video by a Catholic Priest? It’s certainly the first we’ve heard of. Fr. Rob Galea,who is becoming something of a regular here at Cecilia, extends beyond his usual Christian rock and worship music with his latest release: “Breakthrough.”

The lyrics speak of perseverance in prayer: “We’ve been fighting for so long, now the victory is won. Not gonna let it go. We will stand upon the rock and there’s nothing that will stop this wave from breaking through.”

With YouTube comments like “I don’t believe, but I can’t deny that this is good music,” it would seem that “Breakthrough” was a success. What do you think, is Catholic electronic dance music a hit or miss?

To keep up with the latest from Fr. Rob, follow him on Facebook.
