More than 10 years since their last solo release, Bethel Music's Brian & Jenn Johnson will debut their album After All These Years on January 27, capturing the wonder, conviction, and tenderness of heart behind the story of who they've become and who they've remained over the past season. Cowriting every song on the album together, After All These Years varies stylistically from previous projects, as each track is marked by a distinct and bright 80-piece symphony orchestra paired with timeless lyrics and instrumentation.
Songwriting, leading worship and overseeing Bethel Church's Worship Department for over 15 years, the album marks the duo's third solo release, following in the footsteps of live-worship albums Undone (2001) and We Believe (2006). After All These Years carries a message that the unseen history we build with God is the greatest treasure that sustains our lives personally, from generation to generation. Stirring great hope for worshippers, the album reminds us to cherish our own history with God and to empower us to build a legacy that will last.
Colton Dixon's new album, Identity, will release March 24. Varying stylistically from previous releases, Identity will blend Dixon's traditional alternative-rock sound with pop elements, delivering a number of upbeat, danceable tracks. "I think this is the most fun I've had making an album," Dixon said. "Our identity isn't in our past or our careers. It’s not in our successes or failures. Our identity lies in something much bigger than ourselves, and that’s what really counts.”
Chonda Pierce will perform at the Faith Freedom & Future Inaugural Ball in Washington, on Friday. Presented by Family Research Council, one of the country’s leading policy organizations, the ball is among a slate of high-profile celebrations to follow the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump earlier that day. "The inaugural events, with all their pomp and circumstance, are the epitome of our democracy,” shares Pierce, who will also attend the Inaugural Swearing-In Ceremony and the National Prayer Service. “No matter who is in or out of office, I am a patriot of the process and of the office. I'm more than excited to get to see any of it, much less be a small part of it!"
