Worship Leaders' Collection
Worship music as it is known today is a worldwide phenomenon that has it roots in the 1960's in New Zealand. In 1963 David and Dale Garratt pulled back from singing at youth conventions and meetings for a time of waiting upon the Lord. In 1968 they recorded a new album of fresh new songs - Scripture put to song. This is what many recognize at the birth of the modern praise and worship movement. Scripture In Song became the name under which David and Dale released their music. Many of their songs became standards that are sung in churches around the world, songs such as; Be Exalted O God, This Is The Day, Blessed Be The Lord God Almighty plus many more well loved choruses.
Praise and worship music grew around the world. Companies such as Maranatha Music, Vineyard Music, Kingsway Music and Integrity Music responded to the growing need to provide the Church worldwide with music that brings the listener, and the Church, into a time of worship. This album series seeks to capture worship songs from around the world and bring them to you, that they may inspire you, encourage you and be used by you to worship God. That Christians everywhere can relate to these songs and join in a unified voice of praise. That the world may know...
The Albums: In the extra length CD booklet, each Worship Leader has a page for a photo, bio, discography and song lyrics. This is not just another collection of praise and worship songs - it is the heart, vision and passion of these worship leaders. To include wherever a local language worship song on the album with revenues returning to these countries & ministries.
Vision: To bring new and fresh worship songs from around the world to the Church.
Purpose: To collect new songs of worship from Worship Leaders around the world and compile them on a series of CDs that will bring a series of new and fresh outpourings of worship to the church at large. Many of these Worship Leaders have been used very effectively in their own churches and congregations and have been a part of a renewal and recommitment in their local areas. This series is designed to give these Worship Leaders the larger platform to have their songs presented to the Church.
Focus: While the focus is global, it includes songs from the US. There are Worship Leaders in small churches around this country that have written and sung some incredible songs. Our goal is to always to include US Worship Leaders on these albums.
The Series: It is planned to release the first volume and within 4 months to release volume two. Thereafter every 6 months we would hope to release another volume.
The Direction: Mostly it will be new songs sung by worship leaders - generally ones they have written themselves - but we will also add well known songs at times sung by worship leaders that have not had the opportunity to have their gift exposed to a wider audience. In the CD Booklet - (it will need to be an extra length booklet - probably stapled) - each worship Leader will have a page for a photo, bio and discography. All The song lyrics will be printed as well. The above two items are important as this is not just another collection of praise and worship songs but it is the heart, vision and passion of these worship leaders. This is what we are selling, the artists and their craft.
Value: Exposure too new and fresh Praise and Worship songs with minimal cost and risk. As a line extension to an existing Worship label or sub label, it would strengthen and diversify the label as a global entity. We would work with you to introduce new praise and worship artists for continued growth of your Worship albums. This series rather than competing with the existing Worship line of projects would complement it, as this is a compilation of product that has little or no exposure in the USA.
Volume Two - Born To Worship is now available.
Conclusion: With the continued growth in Praise and Worship, many companies are coming out with similar products and the same songs. The Worship Leaders Collection is something new and fresh within the Praise and Worship genre and introduces new material into a market segment that urgently needs a fresh influx of songs. I look forward to making this superb collection available for you.
