(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) June 6, 2012—Forerunner Music, a ministry of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Mo. (IHOP-KC), offers its latest music project, onething LIVE: Magnificent Obsession, on July 24. The album was recorded at IHOP-KC’s annual “onething” young adult conference and features 11 of its worship leaders.
One of many conferences IHOP-KC hosts annually, “onething” is its premier event, drawing 25,000 young people from all over the world. onething LIVE: Magnificent Obsession was recorded at last year’s conference in December and highlights some of its most memorable worship songs. Worship leader Matt Gilman, featured on the record, shares, “I Iove the focused nature of this album and that it represents so well why we do what we do here at the house of prayer—because Jesus is worthy of unceasing adoration.”
Although the 12-song project reflects the musical leanings of multiple worship leaders, its theme is decidedly singular: Jesus is a worthy obsession. David Brymer’s opening track “Worthy of It All,” one of the most requested songs from the conference, is a moving anthem depicting the heavenly scene described in Revelation 4. Similarly, “All Is for Your Glory,” led by Cory Asbury, is a beautifully sincere declaration of the Lord’s preeminence in all things, coupled with a joyful heart-cry to embrace humility.
Other stand-out tracks include “Measure of a Man,” performed by Misty Edwards, IHOP–KC’s most well-known worship leader, and “New Jerusalem,” which showcases Gilman’s passionate lyric and vocal.
A live performance DVD from the event will accompany the music disc; they will be packaged together and distributed to physical and digital retail outlets via New Day Christian Distributors. The digital version includes two additional tracks from Cory Asbury: an extended rendition of “All Is for Your Glory” and the upbeat “Never Gonna Leave Me Dry.”
