Bethel Music’s latest album VICTORY features 14 confident, declarative songs recorded live at Bethel Church.
The album is inspired by the story of King Jehoshaphat, and the unlikely victory won by sending worshipers to the front lines of battle in 2 Chronicles 20:22. As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the men who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. Along with current worship leaders Brian and Jenn Johnson, new emerging voices from our worship community are featured on this album such as Emmy Rose and Bethany Wohrle. Outside voices include Molly Skaggs, part of the Cageless Birds ministry led by Jonathan and Melissa Helser, who brings a grass-roots spirit with her song Ain’t No Grave, and Daniel & Harvest Bashta with their new song Drenched in Love.
Many of the songs on this album were forged in the midst of extreme circumstances, ushering our community into a place of unified dependence where we learned to fight battles Gods way – with worship. Mighty declarations like, I raise a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies / I raise a hallelujah louder than the unbelief, were written the very night that Joel and Janie Taylor, a family in our community who helped found and launch Bethel Music, faced the possible loss of their son Jaxon.
