Passion Releases New Album, 'I've Witnessed It'
sixstepsrecords / Capitol CMG's Passion releases their newest offering, I've Witnessed It, recorded live at Passion 2023. Passion has continued to unite a generation in worship, prayer, and justice ignited by the fame and renown of Jesus for the last two decades. The 14-track album showcases powerful worship moments captured at the annual Passion conference, which was held in two locations with more than 30,000 students in attendance across the two events over the New Year holiday. The first gathering in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX at Dickies Arena, followed by Passion's home base in Atlanta, GA at State Farm Arena.
The new project includes standout moments led by sixstepsrecords' artists Kristian Stanfill, Brett Younker, Melodie Malone, Sean Curran, Crowder and features new voices from the Passion Movement. I've Witnessed It also includes familiar songs like "Gratitude" and "Same God" led by special guests Brandon Lake, Elevation Worship, Cody Carnes, and Kari Jobe.
“Every Passion record is special for different reasons, but this one, in particular, has some real grit and fire in it," explains Kristian Stanfill. "Every song is like a stake in the ground, and every lyric is being lived out in real-time. It’s moment-by-moment surrender. Add to that the sound of the students singing and standing in the gap for their generation…it’s overwhelming! We are praying this project gives fresh wind and faith to everyone who hears these songs.”
The title track immediately connected with the attendees and continues to impact globally since it was released last month. Celebrating today's release, the video premiere for "Here It Is (I Worship You)" will be premiering today on YouTube following more video content in the coming weeks.
Ushering in the writing, recording, and leading of some of the most recognizable and unforgettable worship anthems of this generation, Passion has three RIAA Gold Certified Singles ("Even So Come" "One Thing Remains" and newly certified "Glorious Day") and more than 3.2 billion global streams.
