Some of the most notable worship leaders of this generation—Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill and Kari Jobe—filled Atlanta’s Georgia Dome with songs of freedom and praise as they led more than 60,000 college students in worship at the significant, four-day gathering of Passion 2013. Capturing the power and energy of the conference, the 14-track, live worship album, “Passion: Let The Future Begin,” debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart.
“Passion: Let The Future Begin” is named after the anthemic lyrical shout from Grammy winner Chris Tomlin’s energetic track “God’s Great Dance Floor.” The studio version of the song was first introduced on Tomlin’s album “Burning Lights,” which debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart earlier this year. The first single off the album, Kristian Stanfill's "The Lord Our God," also has exclusive music video release. Also featured on Passion is a live version of Tomlin’s hit, “Whom Shall I Fear [God of Angel Armies],” which currently holds the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Christian Songs chart.
Passion 2013 was a four-day gathering in January of this year, attended by a generation of 18-25 year olds from around the world and led by renowned pastors and teachers Louie Giglio, John Piper, Beth Moore, Lecrae, Francis Chan and others, as well as worship by Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill, Kari Jobe and Brett Younker. The conference was profiled in the national spotlight as students representing 52 countries and over 2,000 universities gave more than $3 million to help fund the freedom fight for the more than 27 million human slaves currently in captivity.
Passion will embark on the “Passion: Let The Future Begin” Tour this April for a night of worship. Making stops in 16 cities, the tour will open up the opportunity for people to connect with the vision and heartbeat of Passion in their own city and join together in worship and prayer as a community seeking to make Jesus famous.
