Much more than a praise worship album, The Worship Initiative represents a bigger project near and dear to Shane Shane: a worship resourcing website where musicians and worship leaders can get both musical training and spiritual teaching. It was a vision to merge musicianship and mentorship.
For this undertaking, they recorded covers of 100 popular worship tracks played by A-list musicians, videotaping each instrument in detail. They then added inductive Bible training, devotions to accompany each song and a scripture search function to put the word of God in leaders mouth's as they are using these songs corporately.
Whether in arenas for Passion Conferences or in the auditorium of Passion City Church, Christy Nockels is known for leading thousands in heartfelt worship, and April 28 will mark the release of her first ever live worship album, Let It Be Jesus. Recorded live at Passion City Church in Atlanta, the album captured a night full of praise to God.[...]

While preparing for the new album, West's greater goal was to create songs full of joy and life, not just life on earth but life that is to come.
"It was important this time around to say that there is joy in this life," West[...]
Most of the songs on this album are themed around a search for worth and a search for love. As I wrote lyrics, I was in a spot where I found myself asking God for words that would speak life into my existence. Two of my favorite songs on the album are Speak and Rest. They are two songs that go together, both musically and lyrically. The lyrics joyfully express a thankfulness in being found and called "son", while asking for words that speak worth in the midst of loneliness and guilt. The final song on the album, Sanquine, is[...]
This album intends to hold in tension the harsh realities of Alex and Dre's cultural realitiesfrom upbringing to modern daywhile purposely shining the light on Jesus in the darkness. This does not mean that each song will be a sermon, nor does it mean that each song on the album is trying to hide Jesus either, but rather like John Piper said, "stay in step with the gospel," even if you don't hear it explicitly in each song. There is a tension, but this album is "in step with the gospel." The album is meant to be heard in one[...]

In life, everyone deals with struggle and hardship, but KB's hope is that Tomorrow We Live is a soundtrack of inspiration. The theme stems from the idea that one day the battle will end and Tomorrow We Live.
"On a grand scale, that's along the belief that God is going to wrap up history with a grand finale that will make sense of all the suffering throughout human history," explains KB. "It will show that good overcomes evil where we'll be in perfection throughout eternity, but also the title works thematically in a practical sense. Nothing is devastating. Hope is bigger."[...]
