NEW: I Need A Ghost by Brandon Lake

Posted on July 25, 2020

I Need A Ghost is the first single from Brandon Lake’s debut album with Bethel Music titled House of Miracles. The song is a snapshot into Lake’s life journey in realizing that this world can offer a lot of things, but nothing can satisfy like the Spirit of God. With a raw and passionate sonic landscape, the song is a cry of desperation for the baptism of the Holy Spirit; that every moment would be enveloped and led by Him, the one who created us.

Introducing Hymn Sheets - Modern Worship Songs In Four-Part Harmony

Posted on July 16, 2020

Let's be honest, there are still a lot of people in our pews who appreciate the sound of four-part harmony -- and not just from the choir loft! We have experienced a major shift since the dawn of the overhead projector. That tool of the '80s and '90s was replaced by PowerPoint, ProPresenter, and a host of other programs designed to lift our eyes from hymnbooks toward lyrics projected above the stage.

Alongside PowerPoint and ProPresenter came a wave of new worship music that traded-in four-part harmony for catchy rhythms and smooth chord progressions. What we have gained on the stage with our refined worship bands, we have lost in the pews with our simplified melodies.
