“I think this album is for every fan that loves music, and our hope is that these songs and the stories behind them will serve as a way to raise awareness to the challenges that people face everyday—many of which are forgotten about,” Maverick City Music’s Jonathan Jay explains. “For me, the most impactful part of this experience was the prisoners’ reaction to simply being remembered as humans. It was an overwhelming sense of gratitude and excitement that carried through every day we spent with these men. It was unbelievable, and I think if more people would just become aware of these feelings, they would want to help find a solution for the issues that come with incarceration.”
Black Voices Movement shares: "Our message is Jesus and His cross. In April 2021, a group of 60 young Black leaders from all over the nation gathered in a tent to seek God and His direction. Jesus met our hunger with His empowerment and called us forward as messengers, evangelists, gatherers, and musicians. A family was formed and four months later, we gathered again — this time with 300. That weekend we recorded our debut album titled The King Is Calling. This project is the sound of our 'yes' and response to Jesus's call. As a missional expression of Circuit Riders, we pray this album inspires our generation to accept their callings in Christ with courage, purity, and the fear of the Lord."

In early 2022, 25 worship leaders and writers met in Atlanta, GA for an ambitious but appointed gathering. Tasha Cobbs Leonard saw a need to provide a safe haven for worship leaders. A space to not only create, but to have authentic community and to be discipled. Over a 36-hour period, the diverse group prayed and wrote together, then immediately recorded before an intimate audience of worshippers. The need has now birthed a movement— SANCTUARY… a place for the prophetic creative.
"We hope you're reminded that the Lord 'keeps his covenant of love to a thousand generations.' The same God who gave David courage to face Goliath fights for you today. The God that answered prayers and provided for His children back then is the same God we serve today. He’s trustworthy. His track record proves it. So we can have confidence that His love toward us will never run out or change."
Yancy shared: "I had the idea of Ready, Set, Go several years ago and just sat on it. I originally thought it would just be about the Bible passage: 'running our race for the prize.' But... I realized you can’t finish a race you never begin. So many people sit on the sidelines in life because they never begin the race God has for them... Whatever God is asking you to do, DO IT. The ripple effect of our obedience is greater than we could ever understand.”
The radio edit of "Jireh" from Maverick City Music is now available! Led by Chandler Moore and Naomi Raine, the song is a simple yet infinitely powerful declaration that God is enough and that we're already chosen by Him.
