Integrity Music announces the release of 'I Surrender', a new single from GRAMMY and Dove Award nominated worshipers All Sons & Daughters. The single is the first from the duo’s forthcoming studio recording, Poets & Saints, which will release September 2 along with a companion book and small group study guide.
Based at Franklin, Tennessee’s Journey Church, and composed of Leslie Jordan and David Leonard, All Sons & Daughters is known for their organic, folk aesthetic and lyrics that focus squarely on Jesus while embracing the tension of the Christian walk. Their songs include “All The Poor and Powerless,” “Brokenness Aside,” “Oh How I Need You,” and “Great Are You Lord,” which is currently ranked in the top 20 of the most-performed songs in churches according to Christian Copyright Licensing International.
According to Leonard and Jordan, first single "I Surrender" was inspired by the life of Saint Francis, a man who was born to privilege but suffered abuse at the hands of his father. Francis walked away from his father and the family’s wealth, literally giving his father the clothes from his back, to follow Christ and embrace a life of service to the Church.
From their experience, George penned a book that examines the lives of poets and saints, and together, George and All Sons & Daughters crafted corresponding Poets & Saints curriculum and a study guide for small groups, all of which will release in September.
