COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – April 30, 2021 – The countdown is officially over for the FAITHFUL project – helmed by the ministries of Compassion International, David C Cook, and Integrity Music.
Coming to life in the winter before the pandemic, a group of well-known and respected authors and songwriters gathered as a community to write and share songs. Their work came to be known as FAITHFUL, songs and stories of God’s kindness to women throughout history and here with us today.
The FAITHFUL book, an eclectic collection of written stories, lyrics, photos, and art created and curated by some of today's most distinguished and thoughtful Christian artists and authors, releases tomorrow. Amanda Bible Williams, Ann Voskamp, Ginny Owens, Kelly Minter, Kelly Needham, Lisa Harper, Raechel Myers, Ruth Chou Simons, Sally Lloyd-Jones, Sarah Macintosh, Savannah Locke, and Trillia Newbell, with an introduction by Amy Grant, gathered to create this keepsake book that celebrates God and the enduring legacy of women in the Bible.
The album FAITHFUL: Go and Speak drops today and shares songs from many of today’s renowned artists, songwriters, and authors. Each song on this special thematic album features a woman telling the story of God's faithfulness throughout Scripture to the present day, and this collaboration between artists and authors has led to a collection of poetry and resonance through song. Artists involved on the album are Amy Grant, Ellie Holcomb, Ann Voskamp, Sarah Macintosh, Sandra McCracken, Ginny Owens, Leslie Jordan, Christy Nockels, Rachael Lampa, Kelly Minter, Savannah Locke, Sarah Kroger, Christa Wells, Tamar Chipp, Jess Ray, Janice Gaines, Trilla Newbell, and Taylor Leonhardt.
A new lyric video is also out today for “Rise Up,” performed by Christa Wells, Jess Ray, Christy Nockels, Tamar Chipp, and Ellie Holcomb. Holcomb also wrote the song along with Raechel Myers, and Ruth Chou Simons.
The FAITHFUL livestream event, which airs tomorrow (May 1) at 7 pm CT, will be an unforgettable evening created and curated by some of the most thought-provoking and influential Christian artists and authors of our time. This unprecedented event will feature a collaboration between the FAITHFUL artists and authors, sharing God’s faithfulness to women throughout Scripture and all the way to present through stories and song. It is the hope of everyone involved that each viewer will walk away from the event with an increased understanding of how God has always valued the integral role of women and how He continues to guide, shape, and protect their lives today.
