Paul Baloche’s Live is the stirring culmination of thousands of worship leaders from across Canada, coming together as a single congregation, to worship God in celebration of Christ’s resurrection. Live is a seamlessly blended worship set of Baloche’s songs, both classic and new, skillfully interspersed with cherished hymns such as “Holy, Holy, Holy.” Baloche explains, “Our hope was to capture a true and honest expression of worship to our God.” And that he did on this rock-worship album, with his polished worship leading and his sincere heart for giving others the words to sing back in praise to God. Paul’s expertise lies in writing congregational music that is singable, true, and attainable for congregations and worship teams alike. From the ethereal beginning of “Our God Saves” to the joy-filled praise of “Hosanna (Praise Is Rising)” and the solemn meditation of “Jesus Be My Savior,” this album reveals the beauty and authenticity of a worshiping congregation.
