Hillsong United Giveaway + Michael W. Smith

One of the biggest reasons why I blog is so that I can share my faith with the people in my life, and with people I’ve been blessed to meet through the internet. I started the blog as a means to share our lives with family and friends who live far away. And now, it’s become a hobby, almost a part-time job, and a ministry.

I’ve been doing reviews and giveaways for quite a while for a company called “Propeller/ Fly By Promotions” in Nashville. If you’ve been following for the past couple of years, you know I’ve given away children’s books, marriage books, and a few movies and documentaries. And lately, to my joy, I’ve been able to review music like Plumb and Christy Nockels. And today, we’re talking about “Hillsong United”! The band which wowed us all with “Oceans” just released a new album, EMPIRES, yesterday!

The twelve songs on EMPIRES are soulful and sweetly melancholy,   The album is largely instrumental, and it focuses on the musicality, while the singing voices are quiet and take a backseat to the praise.

It’s modern, beautiful worship music.

Steve and I have heard the song “Touch the Sky” making radio waves and on the TODAY show, and it’s definitely powerful.

“My heart beating/ My soul breathing/ I found my life/ When I laid it down. . .
What treasure waits within Your scars/ The gift of freedom gold can’t buy/ I bought the world and sold my heart/ You traded heaven to have me again.”

I also have to mention that Michael W. Smith released a new video today for his song, SKY SPILLS OVER!




Here’s a quote from MWS on the video:
"I’m really passionate about the song SKY SPILLS OVER.  It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night.  My son Ryan is a really talented filmmaker so I always enjoy working with him on a project.  But what made this project even more special was that 3 of my own grandkids were in the video.  This video was a lot of fun to make.  I hope people enjoy it!"
 

Keep tuning in because I will be giving away a copy of Michael W. Smith’s album, SOVEREIGN, in the next week or so!
