Artist Hollyn addressed comments claiming she’s no longer a Christian singer because her new EP, Bye, Sad Girl., is about a down season in her life and doesn’t explicitly mention God.
Hollyn took to social media over the weekend and posted a photo showing a couple of comments she received from users online.
“What happened why aren’t you singing for God anymore” and “start making songs about God again,” the comments read. The Gotee records artist, saddened by the messages, decided to make a public statement about her new EP, which is coming Sept. 6.

it breaks my heart to read these comments because it’s a complete misinterpretation of this project, me, and the heart of God. • the goal is vulnerability. the goal is connectivity. the goal is HEALING. • my response to these statements and ones like these would be… isn’t God in every aspect of our life? He is a God of process & God of hope. this project is my PROCESS towards inner healing. this project is God’s promise of HOPE spoken into my heart. • if you, your friends, or family, struggle with mental health, emotional health, or trauma… i pray this project meets you right where you’re at. whatever your situation is. that it brings you encouragement to keep taking steps towards freedom. • with the utmost humility and love, i ask you, instead of excluding people, invite them in. our job is to help people take steps towards truth…not to exclude them. LOVE LOVE LOVE. kindly, hollyn 💙
