iWorship Now/Next 2014
The artists of Integrity Music continue to blaze the trail for the next songs of the church. iWorship Now/Next 2014 is the newest in the annual look at what is becoming popular in worship circles as well as what will probably be the songs of the next couple of years. It features a plethora of artists from worship elder statesmen Paul Baloche and Darlene Zschech to newcomers All Sons and Daughters and The City Harmonic. Cut down to 15 tracks from the 28-track forerunner, this year’s adaptation features live performance of 10 of the songs, thus providing worship teams with a performance line benchmark. The remaining tracks join the compilation in what should be worship standards in the near future.
This is a great album for large congregations or megachurches. It could easily been seen as the setlist for Lakewood or Hillsong. Smaller worship environments may find this collection just what they are looking for to provide challenges for their team.
