Don't Look At Me

Songfacts®:

  • Stacy Orrico explained on the liner notes of Wow #1 Hits this song, which she co-wrote with Mark Heimermann. Said Orrico: "The subject really hit me hard because it talked about people, especially teens who wanted idols or heroes to look up to. I wanted to get the message across to them, 'No, don't look at me. Because if you're looking solely at me, then you are not going to see all you need to see. Rather, I hope what I am showing you is a reflectional Christ in me.' I want people to see Jesus in me."
  • This song topped the American Christian singles chart for ten consecutive weeks.
  • The Genuine album sold over 13,000 copies in the first week, the highest debut week sales ever for a female Christian artist.
