Don't miss the story behind the song "Victor's Crown" by Darlene Zschech.
Darlene Zschech Posted on June 27, 2012
Some of the most moving songs of praise are often birthed from times of despair. Such was the case with “Shout to the Lord.” While going through a difficult time and desperate for the peace of God, Darlene Zschech sat down at her old piano, the same one she’d had since she was five years old. She turned to Psalm 96, and without setting out to do so, she penned one of the Church’s most well-known praise songs in about 20 minutes.

Hey lovely people! February has been amazing and very intense… preparing for the new year, working on the Hope Unlimited Church team to see it up and running, seeing Michelle Shaw from our Hope Rwanda team embark with her husband Dave on our most successful trip thus far with such miraculous results… and like you all, we’ve just been asking God to truly meet with us, to change our hearts in His Presence, that we may be all He desires us to be.

Darlene Zschech shares on the topic of mercy
Australian Darlene Zschech is acclaimed all over the world as a singer, songwriter, worship leader and speaker, most notably for spearheading the music that comes from Hillsong Church. Although she has achieved numerous gold albums and her songs are sung in many nations of the world, her success is not the result of pursuing stardom and fame—it stands as a testimony to her life's passion to serve God and people with all her heart.
As a songwriter, Darlene is perhaps most famous for the chorus "Shout to the Lord," a song that is sung by an estimated 25 to 30 million churchgoers every week and has been covered by at least twenty other artists. This song is the title track for the first live album co-produced with Integrity Music, featuring Darlene as a prominent female worship leader. Shout to the Lord was nominated as Album of the Year for the 1997 Dove Awards and was nominated as Song of the Year for the 1998 Dove Awards. In 2000 Darlene received a Dove Award nomination for Songwriter of the Year.
In addition to "Shout to the Lord," Darlene has written over seventy songs that have been published by Hillsong Music Australia alone. She has also written three books on her passion, which include Extravagant Worship and her latest release, The Kiss of Heaven, with the Worship Leadership series becoming available soon.
In 2005 Darlene released a new solo album Change Your World, which features a new arrangement of Michael W. Smith's worship song "Agnus Dei," as well as a soon to be classic hymn, "Call Upon His Name." A new project, continuing to feature the theme of worship and justice is in production now.
Darlene has a great heart for helping hurting people, and she has recognized that her public platform gives her the opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of others. She is an ambassador for the work of Compassion International, and is committed wholeheartedly to relieving human suffering in any possible way.
It was a missions trip to Central Africa in 2004 that prompted Mark and Darlene to initiate Hope: Rwanda, a global endeavor designed to bring hope to a nation seemingly forgotten since the horrific genocide of 1994. The 100 Days of Hope (April 6 – July 15, 2006) project was strategically coordinated to cover the same 100 days that saw approximately 1 million people viciously slaughtered. Hope Rwanda continues to bring hope and healing to Rwanda… and a new ‘HOPE’ has spread into Cambodia, and the HOPE team are gearing up for many future endeavours.

Darlene and Mark reside in Sydney with their three daughters, Amy, Chloe and Zoe. While she travels extensively and has had the honor of ministering at many prestigious events around the world, Darlene’s highest prize is her role as wife and mother. She loves being at home and being part of the worship team in her local church. As she says, "First and foremost I am a worshipper, and I pray that my life is given to serve the lives of others.
