Catch another remarkable and heartfelt performance and fall in love once again with Lifehouse. The series of hits of this group captured the pulse of the Filipino’s love for love songs.

Though Lifehouse songs are radio friendly rock songs, their kind of music centers on love, losing someone, faith, life and survival. It is not surprising that this American rock band was able to maintain a solid fan base in this country.

With their first hit single “Hanging by A Moment”, the band was catapulted into commercial recognition. Followed by “You and Me” from their self-titled album “Lifehouse.” and strings of hits followed through these years.

Songs in their earlier albums also talks about faith and believing, which also added to their allure as Christian music. Their lyrics it “Take Me Away”, “Everything” and “Breathing” may be interpreted as an ode to God but their words were not imposing, it’s sweet, sentimental and moving. Their strength lies in their ability to effectively speak of feelings, without sounding force. This songwriting style gave them the edge over other alternative rock bands.
