Shelly E. Johnson has just announced the release of two brand new Easter singles, "Victory" and "Weight of the World" and we are excited to bring you the MultiTracks for these two new songs today. "Victory" is a hopeful worship anthem that celebrates the overcoming hope we have because of what Christ accomplished at Calvary while "Weight of the World" is darker, heavier, and soul stirring as it tells the story of the moment Jesus was on the cross, bearing the weight of all the world's sin. "It wasn’t just the physical agony He felt as He was dying," Shelly explains about the latter. "It was the emotional and spiritual battle He was fighting for us, on our behalf, that was the greatest fight of all. Nothing shows His love for us like that moment." As you are preparing for your Easter services, be sure to check these two new singles out as they focus on different aspects of Jesus' sacrifice. Both "Victory" and "Weight of the World" are now available on iTunes - download your copy today.
