Capturing the live praise and worship heard at Planetshakers’ conference held this past April in its home-city of Melbourne, Australia and at gatherings attended by tens of thousands in the Philippines and Malaysia, Planetshakers Band releases its Legacy CD / DVD Friday.
In addition to the audio tracks and corresponding videos from Planetshakers’ acclaimed Legacy Part 1: Alive Again and Legacy Part 2: Passion EPs, Legacy includes four additional tracks recorded live in Melbourne with 20,000 worshipers.
Legacy follows a long line of critically acclaimed recordings from Planetshakers Band, including two 2016 releases that received Dove nominations this year.
Beyond the awards and accolades, Planetshakers Senior Pastor Russell Evans underscores that the legacy of the ministry is about transforming lives. “If people get in the presence of God and they encounter Him, He can give them a dream for their life,” he says. “Then, out of that, they go and change their world.”
Country singer and DOVE nominee Bradley Walker has just completed an all-new, studio recording and live concert DVD of gospel songs and hymns that will be released on October 6. Produced by Ben Isaacs, Blessed: Hymns and Songs of Faith captures many of the songs that inspired Bradley to become a singer.
Rising country singer, Jake McVey, honors our country’s first responders with the video for his latest single “Never Give Up.” The inspirational anthem penned by McVey is brought to life with the music video, already exceeding hundreds of thousands of views and thousands of shares on social media in a couple weeks. In the music video, McVey plays a widowed fireman trying to make ends meet and not lose his family’s farm. The video was directed by Relyent Entertainment’s Louis Police, who has been a volunteer for the Kentucky Department of Emergency Rescue for 20 years. The video was shot with first responders from the Fire, Police and EMT departments of Richmond, Kentucky.
"These brave men and women appreciated being part of a video honoring them by shedding a small light on the risk and sacrifice they face everyday on the job. Just as it is in big cities such as New York or Houston these small towns like Richmond, Kentucky,first responder’s jobs are terribly dangerous," states McVey. "We have seen time and time again how much these courageous people do to keep us safe. It was my honor to do this video with and for them. If I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that you just have to keep going. Through the good and the bad, you have to find what keeps you moving and just ‘never give up.”
