The long-awaited LIVE IN CHICAGO album by Bishop Dan Willis and All Nations Choir (ANC) is now available! The album was recorded live at the Lighthouse Church of All Nations in Alsip, IL, which is one of Chicago's fastest-growing multicultural churches under the leadership of Senior Pastor Garland Mays. Bishop Dan Willis, the visionary behind the iconic choir The Pentecostals of Chicago, founded Lighthouse Church of All Nations. Bishop Willis and his now ANC choir have returned with a power-packed album of sacred anthems, churchy praise tracks, and atmosphere-setting worship songs.
LIVE IN CHICAGO features guest appearances by Willie Moore, Jr, Wess Morgan, Jesse Campbell, Bridgette Hurt, and many more. The album producers are Philip Feaster (Jonathan McReynolds, Fred Hammond, Chicago Mass), Bryan Hurt (Music Director at Lighthouse Church of All Nations), and Bridgette Hurt (Light House Minister of Music). Bishop Dan Willis serves as executive producer and contributes his anointed songwriting to the project on tracks "Be It Unto Me" and "Til We Meet."
"I cherish the fact that you are listening to this album, and I PRAY at this moment that you will always know GOD INHABITS THE PRAISES of HIS PEOPLE," says Bishop Dan Willis. "You will love Willie Moore, Jr. and Wess Morgan, along with the greatest voices in all of Chicago! So, Till We Meet Again, let’s SHOUT! I love you, and there is nothing you can do about it!!"
ANC's first radio single, "Praise Him," written by Percy Gray, features a vocal lead by Fred Dubose. Bishop Willis and ANC have released the first live video from the recording on their YouTube channel. The ANC choir delivers "Praise Him" with exuberant uniformity making the song a future staple for Sunday morning services nationwide.
LIVE IN CHICAGO has a blend of traditional and contemporary songs appealing to diverse audiences. Bishop Willis and Bridgette Hurt duet the lead vocals on "How Excellent Your Mighty Name" while singer and radio personality Willie Moore, Jr steps to the mic on the urban-inspired "Feel Like Praise'n."
"The Bishop Dan Willis and ANC project is on FIRE!" says Bridgette Hurt. "Thank You Jesus!!! It’s anointed, it’s exciting, and it’s relevant. It’s a well rounded project that will fit any ministry on any level. God’s hand is on it, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
You can experience the fire of Bishop Willis and ANC live! They are set to tour the US and abroad. Bishop Willis and ANC will be on the west coast (Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas) in August. They are to tour internationally live in Dublin, Ireland, at Victory Church Dublin on October 20 and live in London, England, at Ruach City Church on October 22.
