Engaging kids with songs to carry for life that share timeless truths with intentional artistry, For the Cause is the second release in the Getty Kids Hymnal album series. The album will be available in stores and online on June 16. As with the first release (In Christ Alone) this latest album features 12 hymns old and new sung by kids for kids of all ages to sing along to! Recorded with kid friendly arrangements by the Getty Band.
This album's release will coincide with the Getty Music Global Hymn Sing (June 11, 2017).

They were married in 2004, and two years later, they recorded their first project as a couple in the United Kingdom and Nashville, TN.
