Grammy Award-winning songwriter, producer, and worship leader Brooke Ligertwood has released a multi-track EP for her song, "A Thousand Hallelujahs." The release features multiple versions of the anthem including a new radio version (which is impacting radio today), a live performance, a Passion 2022 live recording, and an acoustic rendition of "A Thousand Hallelujahs."

Ligertwood shared, "As Darrell Johnson says, 'When we come to worship on a Sunday, we join a worship service that has been happening long before we were around and will continue long after our earthly time ceases.' This song finds context in not only the generation's worship of Christ’s Church on the earth, but the eternal reality of worship in heaven. When we worship, we join both."
Ligertwood's critically acclaimed 2022 album, “SEVEN (Live),” has garnered more than 120 million global streams since its release. The lead single, "A Thousand Hallelujahs," from that album has amassed more than 30 million global streams and made four international Top 50 viral charts.
As a prolific songwriter, Ligertwood's songs have more than 1.5 billion global streams and have been translated into over 15 languages. Her songs have topped the CCLI chart with two No. 1 songs and several Top 25 worship songs that have been sung around the world like "What A Beautiful Name," "Who You Say I am," "King of Kings" and "Hosanna.” For her songwriting, she has been honored with a Grammy Award, one RIAA-Certified Platinum single, and two Gold singles.
Next month, she will embark on the “SEVEN Tour,” including a performance at the historical Ryman Auditorium on March 19. Click here for the complete tour schedule.
