“The message of the album is to inspire the listener and audience to connect with their inner, contribute to purpose in life, be put on a closer path towards self-love where the audience feels strengthened, healed and brave as well as inspired to keep questioning and challenging norms and stereotypes, all in pursuit towards a deeper understanding in relationship to oneself and with others,” Aurelia Dey said.
In the Sunday Service show Aurelia Dey, her dancers and live band “The Neighbors”, (ADTN) want to reach out and unite people from different life situations and class backgrounds through therapeutic content. Her songs and live shows are a blissful mix between heavy bass, decisive rap, energetic dance and spiritual soul singing. ADTN calls the audience ‘audience participants’ as there is active participation from the audience, a type of exchange and experience from both parties. ADTN conveys a sense of community, comfort, strength and belonging and the goal is for every person to feel seen. The “Sunday Service” show is contributing to reflection on anti-racism, gender equality and environmental awareness, but also openly emphasizes the theme of mental health /illness, raises thoughts about this and promotes mental health in a safe and welcoming context.
