The second family worship album from Elim Sound 'NEW' features ten original songs for the whole family to enjoy in the car, on a Sunday morning or in Kids Church.
'NEW' contains five brand new songs written for the project, three drawn from the wider Elim family and two from the Elim Sound album, 'ONE.'
In opening up the project to the wider Elim family, Elim Sound asked families, children and songwriters to send in songs. With over forty songs submitted, the tea chose: ’Gifts,’ written and sung by ten year old Hiyab Gazae from Coventry Elim, ‘Jesus Be The Leader,’ written and sung by son and mum, Reuben and Laura Rook from Portsmouth Elim and ‘Let You Light Shine,’ written by mum of three, Hannah De Lisle, sung by twelve year old Rubi Cook.
The team have used a number of new voices for this project including 15 year old rapper, Walter Taylor from Cardiff, Jonathan Owusu-Yianomah and Rebecca Scott from London, Karen Felix from Yeovil and Catherine Browne from Northern Ireland. They also assembled a choir of 40 kids from a number of Elim churches in London and a choir of 19 from Northern Ireland.
This multicultural, all-age project brings together a current pop-vibe with Scripture verses, bible characters and strong Christian truths.
