Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” a pop and dancehall infused song that describes the love of a woman’s body, was the No.1 song on Billboard’s charts for over 10 weeks. Now, one singer-songwriter has turned the hit tune into a worship song that has reached over 300,000 people.
Beckah Shae, the 38-year-old singer-songwriter who specializes in Christian worship music, remade one of the year’s most popular songs into the title “If Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ were a Christian song by Beckah Shae.”
Shae remade Sheeran’s provocative lyrics which hint at a lustful encounter that started at a bar in the song beginning with the lyrics, “The club isn’t the best place to find a lover so the bar is where I go/Me and my friends at the table doing shots drinking fast and then we talk slow.”
The altered lyrics used to worship God read, “The club isn’t the best place to find a lover, so to you is where I go. Me and my naked heart in Your presence getting wrecked drinking fast until I overflow.”
Later, in the song Shae makes it clear that she is speaking about God by using the word, Elohim which is a Hebrew name for God.
