Hawk Nelson’s song, "Drops In The Ocean" was inspired by the realization that God is for us, not against us. Lead singer, Jonathan Steingard explains, "It was the idea of thinking of our sin and shame as something that's just this tiny thing that's totally engulfed by this ocean of God's grace, love and forgiveness." Hawk Nelson first formed in Ontario Canada in 2000 and now includes band members Jonathan Steingard (Lead Singer), Daniel Biro (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Micah Kuiper (Guitar), and David Niacaris (Drums.) After years of playing as an independent band, the group signed a record deal, and released their debut album Letters to the President, in 2004. Hawk Nelson followed that with Smile, It’s the End of the World (2006), Hawk Nelson Is My Friend (2008), Live Life Loud (2009), and Crazy Love (2011)- an album that was inspired by the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan. Daniel Biro is the sole remaining original band member. Jonathan joined the band in 2004.
