Press Release

A special release of "Bless God" drops today from Grammy-Award-winning songwriter, producer and worship leader Brooke Ligertwood. The song, which originally appeared as the first track on her latest album, “EIGHT,” (Capitol CMG), is now offered with four additional renditions, including the focus track, "Bless God (Live From Passion 2024)." The version, which also features Passion, Brandon Lake and Cody Carnes, is accompanied by a live video, viewable below. Listen to the live rendition here.

"Bless God" is a warmly invitational, yet declarative and anthemic song. Whilst each song on “EIGHT” sits in its own lane, if the lane "Bless God" sits in was adorned with garland and sign, it would say "This is for the Church.'"

"The power of worship as a habit and a habitual posture cannot be understated," Ligertwood elaborates further. "When life and circumstances twist us into all manner of positions, decisively aligning our gaze and confession with the truth of Christ and deliberately bringing him thanks and praise is not only vital but an entrance to the joy of the Lord. In the field of plenty, the dark valley, when empty-handed, whether victorious or unraveling, blessing God is possible and powerful! The song 'Bless God' exists to serve and accompany our pilgrimage through all these seasons and situations." 

In her long-standing career and with her passion for art and theology, Ligertwood has served the Church globally through her long-established tenure of writing congregational anthems, while also maintaining a mainstream career of over two decades under her maiden name, Brooke Fraser.

A prolific songwriter, she has penned a growing anthology of beloved church anthems such as “What A Beautiful Name,” “King of Kings,” “A Thousand Hallelujahs” and “Hosanna,” and devotional favorites “New Wine” and “None But Jesus.” Her songs have been streamed globally more than 1.5 billion times, translated into over 15 languages, and have topped charts with two No. 1 songs and several top 25s that have been sung around the world ("What A Beautiful Name," "Who You Say I Am," "King of Kings," "Hosanna”). With her songwriting, she has been honored with a Grammy Award, one RIAA Platinum-certified single, and two RIAA Gold-certified singles.



Ligertwood is part of Hillsong Worship, which she leads globally. She passionately asserts that all of life, for the follower of Christ, is ministry. To find out more information, visit BrookeLigertwood.com.
