“Redeemed” Official Lyric Video

February 28, 2024

I started writing this song February 25, 2010: just some pretty piano music. I was trying to show a student how to do composition. She wasn’t interested. 😂

Fourteen years later, here I am.

Katie sings this song so beautifully. She’s the friend that wrote the bridge for the song “Peace” that I just released on February 12.

Elijah—I’ve talked about him before—came over one Friday night and sang some harmonies in verse 3, verse 4, bridge 2, and the chorus.

Then, there’s little old me. I forced myself to sing harmonies and rather than have the producer delete my tracks, I made him bump me up. 😉 I’ve talked about this hesitation to sing my own songs ad nauseum in this blog, especially in the “Climb Every Mountain” post.


About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
