THE VOICE Winner Todd Tilghman Releases Debut Worship Single ‘Worth It All’ With Rita Springer
By Movieguide® Staff
Ahead of the Easter holiday, singer-songwriter Todd Tilghman and winner of season 18 of THE VOICE released his debut worship single, “Worth It All,” on April 1, 2022.
The track features Rita Springer, the original songwriter and performer of the song.
“This song has always helped me through seasons when my heart was breaking and I didn’t know what to do,” Tilghman explained. “And it means so very much that I can share it with the world as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
“Rita agreeing to feature on this was a dream come true for me,” Tilghman added.
Tilghman hopes the song will encourage people despite the trials of the past few years.
“After what has already been a hard year for so many, we could all use a little hope in our lives,” he said. “I want people to hear this and realize the dark season isn’t the end, and every teardrop is meaningful. No suffering is forever, and no suffering is for nothing.”
Movieguide previously reported on Tilghman’s win on THE VOICE:
Tilghman, 41, is the oldest contestant to win the singing competition show in the history of 18 seasons and said that he trusted God through the entire journey, from audition to the eventual win last May.
“I want to say, I can’t take credit for it, but I just sort of fell into it backwards,” Tilghman said.
The father of eight children also pastored a church in Mississippi, the very same state in which he grew up. Tilghman told Movieguide® that since winning THE VOICE, his ministry both grew and went through some changes.
“God has given me a lot more opportunities that are not necessarily traditional ministry, to minister,” Tilghman said.
Tilghman said that suffering is an integral part of any journey and is especially important for Christians to realize in current circumstances. One of the scriptures that Tilghman mentioned he clung to during his journey is 2 Corinthians 4:17.
“The Bible says that our affliction is light, and it’s temporary, and it’s working for us and an eternal weight of glory,” Tilghman said. “And that, to me, is a big deal. Because a lot of times we forget that suffering is part of it, you know, people of faith, forget that, that suffering is going to be part of it sometimes. Now, that’s not the whole of it. And that doesn’t mean that our spirit and our attitude has to suffer alone.”
“Scripture says the suffering that we’re facing right now is nothing compared to the glory that is coming,” he said. “I believe that that means heaven and eternity with God. But I also believe that, you know, David said we’d see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. So I think that there’s some glory that we can live in right here right now.”
