Forerunner Music, the official record label of the International House of Prayer of Kansas City (IHOPKC), releases today the multi-artist album, Fully Alive. This much-anticipated, 15-track recording is available now at digital retail providers, including iTunes, Amazon.com and more, as well as on streaming outlets such as Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and other digital providers internationally. Fans may also purchase Fully Alive directly from the Forerunner Bookstore online at www.forerunnermusic.com/fullyalive.
This Forerunner Music worship experience, born out of the collaborative efforts of the night-and-day IHOPKC community of worship leaders, musicians, singers and songwriters who gathered together earlier this year as part of a series of Forerunner songwriting camps, features acclaimed Forerunner Music artists and worship leaders such as Jonas and Laura (Hackett) Park, Jaye Thomas and Jon Thurlow. In this creative venture, every song fromFully Alive was written and recorded in an atmosphere of prayer resulting in an extension and expression of hearts coming together to magnify Jesus.
"Our heart behind this album, from writing to production, was to bless God by creating together as a family," says Jonas Park, who co-produced the album with David Bollman. "We wanted to join our perspectives and strengths together-and then offer these songs to Him with love and deep gratitude.
"Something powerful happens when God's people come together to beautifully create music and when many voices join in song as one," continues Park. "There's a quote that I think about often from Saint Irenaeus that says, 'The glory of God is man fully alive.' It's like we've all had these individual breakthroughs with Him, and then come to together to celebrate Him 'fully alive.'"
In addition to the music from Fully Alive being available at retail and streaming outlets, music videos for each track shot during the recording of Fully Alive will be available throughwww.forerunnermusic.com/fullyalive beginning today.
Prior to today's release of the album, tens of thousands of people experienced a special preview of the new songs during Onething 2017, which was held Dec. 28-31. Forerunner Music artists and worship leaders debuted the songs from Fully Alive as part of this annual IHOPKC young adult conference that draws young people and church leaders from around the world to the Kansas City Convention Center for a time of worship and preaching. The gathering was also broadcast live online.
