Ricardo Sanchez has released his new album Grand Symphony. Produced by Sanchez, along with multi GRAMMY-winning worship leader Israel Houghton and Mark Townsend, the 12-song project is Sanchez's most pop-oriented release to date.
A showcase of international influences, highlights ofGrand Symphony include the electronically-pulsing "Halle, Halle," penned by Sanchez and Houghton; "Take Over," an acoustic guitar-driven message of surrender and gratitude; the bilingual declaration of praise, "Por Cristo"; and "Love The Name," featuring acclaimed singer/songwriter Brian Courtney Wilson, among other selections.
"When people listen to this project, I want them to know they have a place in the Body of Christ," Sanchez says. "They don't have to be a Bible scholar or theologian or someone on television to be of value or importance. Life is a symphony-everyone has a story to tell and a part to play. There's reason and purpose in it all."
Ricardo Sanchez has helped pen some of the most influential songs in modern worship, including "Power of the Cross," "I Call Your Name," "Great God," and the Dove Award-winning "The Power of One."
