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 Manila (Capital of the Philippines) and Kuala Lumpur (Capital of Malaysia), Planetshakers Band releases its Legacy CD / DVD Sept. 15 from Integrity Music. The new 12-song recording and 10-track DVD is available to now at iTunes, Amazon.com and Christianbook.com.
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: “Through It All,” “Be My Vision,” “Here’s My Life” and “A Love I Know.” The project features worship leaders Sam Evans, Joth Hunt (who also produced and mixed the album), Rudy and Chelsi Nikkerud and vocalists BJ Pridham and Aimee Evans among others.
Legacy follows a long line of critically acclaimed recordings from Planetshakers Band, including two 2016 releases that received GMA Dove Award nominations this year. In addition to “Long Form Video Of The Year” for Overflow, Planetshakers is nominated for “Spanish Language Album Of The Year” for Sé Quién Eres Tú featuring the Colombian ministry Su Presencia. (The 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards will be held Oct. 17 in Nashville.)
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.”
In addition to the Legacy CD/DVD, a digital deluxe version and a songbook, Planetshakers Band will release a Spanish-language version of the album, Legado, in November, marking the band’s third Spanish album.
