In partnership with Essential Worship, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Zach Williams announces the release of his cover of "Rattle!" featuring Pastor Steven Furtick. Written by Furtick, Chris Brown, and Brandon Lake and originally recorded by Elevation Worship, "Rattle!" is one of the newest and fastest-growing anthems for the church in 2020. A lyric video also drops today and can be viewed below.
"'Impossible' and 'disappointment' are two words that have plagued our culture in this season," Williams shares. "I want these words to be replaced with 'power' and 'miracles.' As a musician with a platform, I want 'My God is able' to rattle the minds of the listeners. The first time I heard this song, the raw power and emotion of this song impacted me greatly, and I want this song to be a reminder to all that God IS able and he IS doing great things."
A "Rattle!" contest is also well underway with Tunespeak. With already more than 160,000 entries at press time, the contest runs through December 4 and offers numerous giveaways such as a Fender guitar, Alclair monitors, along with Zach Williams and Essential Worship merchandise.
Despite his "Rescue Story Tour" plans postponing due to COVID-19, Zach Williams was able to tour with Big Daddy Weave this past fall on numerous drive-in tours around the U.S. Plans for the upcoming year will soon be announced. And just in time for the holidays, Williams just released his resounding version of "Go Tell It On The Mountain," which was recorded at the legendary Fame Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The music video, which shares the recording of the song, is also out now.
Williams' latest single, "There Was Jesus," his duet with Dolly Parton, held the No. 1 spot at radio for multiple weeks. And it was a year ago when the duo debuted the song during the live broadcast of the CMA Awards. "There Was Jesus" is featured on Rescue Story, which features the GRAMMY-nominated title track. Rescue Story was nominated for a GMA Dove Award (Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year) and won for Best Recorded Music Packaging. Williams was also named this year's GMA Dove Awards Songwriter of the Year (Artist).
