Worship leader, songwriter and vocalist Meredith Andrews invites the world to experience a special night of congregational worship that took place in downtown Nashville at her home church (The Belonging Co.) on Sept. 26 with her upcoming live recording. Meredith Andrews will release her first live EP, "Faith And Wonder (Live)," on March 8, 2019.
In anticipation of the upcoming release, Andrews will release three singles digitally leading up to the six-song EP release. On Dec. 7, the first song, "A Million Saints," will be available, as will a pre-order for the entire EP. "Faith And Wonder (feat. Cody Ray Lee & Abbie Simmons) [Live]" will be available on Jan. 4, while "Open Over Us (Live)" releases on Feb. 8, leading to the full EP release in March.
"Faith And Wonder (Live)" was produced by her husband, Jacob Sooter, who also co-wrote five songs on the EP. She also enlisted the help of her church family from the crew and production team as well as a large portion of the audience for the live recording, making it a family affair. Co-writers of "Faith And Wonder (Live)" include: Sooter, Phil Wickham, Mia Fieldes, Hank Bentley, UPPEROOMS's Simmons and Lee, Bethel Music's Steffany Gretzinger, The Belonging Co.'s Andrew Holt, and Vertical Worship's Tyler Miller and Eddie Hoagland.
A press release states "The result is a collection of songs that feel like a homecoming, intimately personal while still filling the room with a collective chorus of worship for a God who saves. It was Andrews' first and only goal in creating 'Faith and Wonder (Live),' for God's presence to be felt in a deep and genuine way."
"More than anything, I wanted this project to honor Jesus," Andrews shared about the EP and recording. "It was an opportunity to get in a room full of people, sing these songs over and with them, and encounter the presence of God together."
The debut single, "A Million Saints," was co-written with worship leader Wickham. True to the heart of the project, this song is about the global church, lifting one voice with one heart. 
"It's a picture of heaven to me, all of us joining in and singing, 'God, You're holy,' " Andrews said of the song. "It's not just about me or my community. It's the church of the world, all nations and all generations singing the same thing, lifting up one name."
Andrews is passionate about writing and leading songs that keep people's hearts and minds set on Jesus. Over the course of her four Word Worship albums, the Dove Award-winning artist has been using her musical gifts, love for God and her huge heart for his people to teach and remind others.
She has been a part of multiple songs sung by churches across America, such as "Open Up The Heavens," "Lamb of God," "Not For A Moment" and "Spirit of the Living God." Andrews often leads worship at major women's and/or worship leader conferences across the U.S., and has toured with Matt Maher, Natalie Grant, Big Daddy Weave, Vertical Church, Wickham and Michael W. Smith, among others. For additional information, visit www.meredithandrews.com.
