Kari Jobe Releases Multiple Versions of 'The Blessing'

May 23 2020

GRAMMY-nominated worship leader Kari Jobe releases multiple versions of the widely popular new song, "The Blessing," which Jobe co-wrote with Cody Carnes and Elevation Worship's Steven Furtick and Chris Brown. Today's release includes a studio version, cinematic version and radio versions all featuring Carnes.


In March before the world was overcome with the pandemic, Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes and Elevation Worship gathered together to write "The Blessing," releasing it just days later via YouTube with the live video that now has more than 13 million views. Jobe released the live audio track a few weeks later, and the song has 17 million streams and has been included on Spotify's US Viral 50 and Global Viral 50 Playlists.

This timely song has also been covered by churches around the world singing the song over the nations. Countries like the United Kingdom, Canada and Zimbabwe to name a few have covered this song in many other languages. "The Blessing" is currently the No. 1 Song at Worship Together, MultiTracks, Praise Charts and Song Select. At radio, the single has already moved into the Top 20 on Christian Airplay Chart, AC Monitored and AC Indicator charts after just a few weeks of being sent to radio.

"I have cried so many times as I’ve watched different people all over the world declaring the blessing over their families, their churches and their nations," shares Kari Jobe on the impact of "The Blessing." "God is a God of His word and this song is straight from scripture. I love how He never changes and is always with us and for us. That brings so much peace, especially in a season of disappointment, uncertainty and fear like we have all been waking through this year. 'The Blessing' is truth that we can declare daily over our lives, families, and others. So grateful."

Jobe is currently working on songs for a new album that will be released later this year.
