Across social media the uplifting tones of Rushawn Ewears singing “It’s a beautiful day” have filled many people with joy. And this version with TRINIX will really put you in the mood to celebrate life.
Ewears was only 10 years old when he first recorded the song while a schoolboy at Top Hill Primary School in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. The youngster, standing in front of the blackboard in the classroom belts out, “Lord I thank you for sunshine, thank you for rain …”
In the song, with lyrics written by Jermaine Edwards, the schoolboy reminds us that whatever we go through in life, “it’s a beautiful day” with God supporting us through our trials and tribulations.
While the tune in itself is catchy, hearing it sung by an innocent child reminds us that we’re all God’s children on life’s journey. And that sometimes we need to see life through a child’s eyes, free from all those adult stresses.
