River Valley Worship - "Real Thing"

River Valley Worship has released their "Real Thing" from their upcoming album Altars. In this exclusive guest blog post, the writer shares, "It’s the truth of Psalm 86 that nudged us to write a lyric like 'All I know right now is I’m ready / All I want right now is the real thing Lord.' Somehow it feels declarative without losing the authenticity of where we really find ourselves at times in this life. 'God I know there’s more for me to learn and grow in, and there’s a lot that I don’t know, but I do know one thing... it’s that I need you.' I would like to think that there is a tone of hopeful desperation laced throughout the entire landscape of 'Real Thing.'"

Cross Worship - "Victorious"

"Victorious" was recorded at Rivers Crossing Community Church in Mason, OH as part of Cross Worship’s first live recording of original songs. The song is D’Marcus Howard’s debut as lead vocalist. Cross Worship is a collaboration of worship leaders with a heart to reconcile the body of Christ across denominational and racial divides. It was founded by Troy Culbreth in Cincinnati, Ohio as a regular gathering, inviting churches from around the city to come and worship together united as one.

Rita Springer - "Midnight"

"Midnight" is the first released song of Rita Springer's upcoming album. She shares, "For me, Midnight has always felt like the darkest part of night. My life has been a series of waiting. Waiting on God to make good on His words and all His promises. Twelve is a big number in Scripture. God seems to like these two numbers put together. As the 'Bridegroom,' He waits to show up until midnight. Even Boaz finds Ruth (Ruth 3:8) laying at his feet, at midnight. I wrestled with this and as I went into write a record about Light, I had to address the hour of midnight. I had been tossing questions at God and one night He simply replied to my whine about why he seemed to be the last hour God. He reminded me that midnight, to me the darkest hour, was actually the first hour of the new day. It was dawn. Here I was thinking he was waiting when he was actually arriving at the first hour.

I walked into the studio at Capital with Mia Fieldes and Bede Korporaal and told them I wanted to write about how God doesn’t wait for sunrise… He moves at midnight. The song was written as the three of us sat in the reality of this truth. I cannot think of a more appropriate time to release the first song of this new record of Light, by telling the story of a first hour God rushing in to show himself never late, always right on time!"

In this exclusive guest blog post, Rita dives deeper into the story behind her new song "Midnight."
