sixstepsrecords / Capitol CMG's Passion releases their newest offering, “I've Witnessed It,” recorded live at Passion 2023.
A press release said, “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. Click here to listen to the 14-track album that 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/Fort Worth, Texas, at Dickies Arena, followed by Passion's home base in Atlanta 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," Stanfill said. "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)" is premiering today on YouTube following more video content in the coming weeks. Click below to watch the performance.
