A Girl Like Me *Music Review*
Yes. That’s a picture of the CD case on my knees in the car. The car is where I listen to music the most.
So, I couldn’t fairly review Julie Elias’s “a girl like me” CD if I didn’t listen to it on a eight hour round-trip car ride.
We listened to all 12 tracks straight through. Julie’s voice is clear and relaxing. The songs on the CD are mostly ballads.
I liked the fact that I could understand the lyrics without straining to make out words. I appreciated the honesty and openness in the lyrics.
If you are a fan of Christian music, you will be a fan of Julie Elias!

CD “A Girl Like Me” by Julie Elias
Julie Elias is a Christian singer/songwriter who’s story is unique but equally inspiring. Realizing a life in Hollywood as an actress, including appearing on shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “CSI:NY,” was not bringing her the happiness and contentment she was looking for, she surrendered herself to what God wanted her to do: be an influence in Christian music and use her stories of rejection, beauty and her own faith to encourage others. In 2014, she founded Aurora Ministries, a 501c3 non-profit that creates Christian material and events specifically for teen and tween girls. Through music, booklets, blogging, conferences and girls’ events, Julie has been able to share God’s role in her life – even when she didn’t think He was there – and find common ground to inspire young women all over the world.
Product info: “A Girl Like Me” is Julie’s latest album which will be available on all digital music outlets, including iTunes, on October 27, 2017. Meant to be a companion to her girls’ events, every original song on the album as an intentional purpose and story behind it, from the conflict with a good friend in “Forgive Me” to her own feelings of unworthiness in “A Girl Like Me” to revisiting one of her favorites when she was a teen, a cover of DC Talk’s “In the Light.” The songs are a happy marriage of both heartfelt messages and both theatrical anthems and intimate lullabies when the occasion calls for it. Whether you are a young woman in life or simply a young woman at heart, that album reminds us all that despite our failures and stubbornness, we need to “still believe a girl like me could be worthy of a King.”
