HALLELUJAHS-A Rocketown Worship collection to release June 3
Block quote start
(Franklin, TN… 05/08/03) - On June 3, Rocketown Records will release a compilation album titled Hallelujahs—A Rocketown Worship Collection, which includes
11 previously recorded tracks and three new songs. Two new songs— “My Jesus I Love Thee” and “You Are My All in All”—were arranged and produced by Rocketown
Records founder and Chairman Michael W. Smith during a live recording session at a Gospel Music Week 2003 showcase at Nashville’s Rocketown teen club.
All of the artists on the Rocketown roster participated in the live recording, and each artist wrote liner notes for their songs on the album.
“Worship music is what Christian music always has been and always will be,” said Smith. “What I love about our artists at Rocketown is that they write songs
that represent what worship is about in its fullest sense, living all our lives for God. From the strains of nature heard in Chris Rice’s ‘Hallelujahs’
to the reminder that the greatest commandment is to love in Ginny Owens’ ‘I Am Nothing,’ I’ve found that this collection is music that draws my heart closer
to the Father and challenges all of us to impact our world.”
