Songs 4 Worship™, the praise and worship series created by Integrity Music and Time Life Music, met with unprecedented demand following its nationwide network and cable television launch in 2001. Now, with over 10 million double albums sold, the brand celebrates its 10th Anniversary with the March 1 release of Songs 4 Worship™ Ultimate, a three-disc set packed with 27 powerful worship anthems and a special bonus DVD with over an hour of compelling worship visuals including performances from Kari Jobe, Israel Houghton, John Mark McMillan and more.
The project’s two CDs and bonus DVD offer up some of the most popular worship songs from a variety of artists and musicians including: Michael W. Smith, Natalie Grant, Israel and New Breed, Kari Jobe, MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Lincoln Brewster, Paul Baloche, Tenth Avenue North and Phillips, Craig & Dean.
“The Songs 4 Worship™ Ultimate project caps 10 years and over 10 million double albums for the biggest selling praise and worship franchise of all time,” says Danny McGuffey, Integrity’s Sr. VP/Chief Marketing Officer. “It is an amazing story and the uniqueness of the series is that we work with the best and emerging worship songs as well as the most respected artists and worship leaders in the world. This collection expands on that idea with the addition of a bonus DVD to total three discs at a value price.”
McGuffey says Ultimate contains yet another surprise, the addition of the song “Face to Face,” newly written and recorded especially for the project by renowned worship artist and Songs 4 Worship™ series alum Darlene Zschech.
“It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since the launch (of Songs 4 Worship™),” adds Zschech, writer of the anthem “Shout to the Lord.” “I am so honored to have been a small part of that and the many songs that have impacted the way people have worshipped around the world.”
As a continuity series, Songs 4 Worship™ garnered an amazing 500,000 member signups for Time Life in just over 90 days after its TV roll-out of the debut album, Songs 4 Worship™ Shout to the Lord. And Songs 4 Worship™ has remained Time Life’s biggest music series launch ever.
Since 01, Integrity and Time Life have released dozens of Songs 4 Worship™ collections in multiple genres including Gospel, Country, Hymns and Children’s. The series has also been an international hit, selling over a million units in the UK/Europe and earning multi Platinum, Platinum and Gold certification in the U.S. and Gold certification in Australia, Canada and the UK.
