(November 17, 2011) Nashville, Tenn--
"How Great Is Our God" continues to be the No. 1 song sung in churches around the world, and in turn, is the fastest rising modern day hymn in CCLI chart history.
This week, Chris Tomlin
, the voice behind the popular church anthem, released How Great Is Our God: The Essential Collection
in honor of the song's global impact. The album continues to prove how this acclaimed artist is leading future generations in a new direction of worship.
The 15-track album (track listing below) features seven No. 1 hits, all of which are in CCLI's Top 120 Chart. How Great Is Our God: The Essential Collection
also includes new renditions of “Forever,” “We Fall Down” and a new version of the title track and fan favorite, “How Great Is Our God [World Edition]" featuring the international languages and voices of worship leaders Tomlin
has met all over the globe on Passion world tours.
This track is also the project's first single, spinning on over 19 AC stations, currently at No. 28 on the AC Indicator chart.
“I’ve been thinking for a while if I ever did a ‘Best Of’ I’d want it to be called ‘How Great Is Our God’ just because of what that song has done and what that song has become globally,” explains the GRAMMY ® nominated artist.
“It just seems to translate universally, as people have picked it up in their own countries and own languages. It’s the most special thing I’ve ever recorded. It gives you a sense that this is the whole world worshipping God.”
