Live Album Captures the Theme of Family, Spontaneous Worship Moments from International House of Prayer’s Annual Onething Conference in Kansas City, MO
Over 15,000 Worshipers from Across the World Gathered at 15th Year-End Premier Event, Including Well-Known Worship Artists Audrey Assad and Jonathan David and Melissa Helser
Recorded during the International House of Prayer of Kansas City’s (IHOPKC’s) annual Onething young adult conference last December and marking the 11th live Onething album to date, Onething Live: All Cry Glory releases today from Forerunner Music, the official record label of IHOPKC. Featuring some of the most memorable songs from the 15th year-end premier event, Onething Live: All Cry Glory captures the energetic atmosphere and vibrant worship of the conference led by Forerunner Music artists and members of IHOPKC’s worship teams, while sharing a spirit of unity found amongst the 15,000+ worshipers in attendance and an estimated 500,000 participants via live broadcasts during the 4-day event.
The 12-track album (and 18-track Deluxe Edition), centered around the unifying theme of “All Cry Glory,” includes new songs from established Forerunner Music artists Misty Edwards, Laura Hackett Park, Jonas Park, Jaye Thomas, and more, as well as new songs from four IHOPKC worship leaders appearing on a Onething album for the first time: Brandon Oaks, David Forlu, Olivia Buckles, and Lesley Phillips. Also featured on the album is the compelling rendition of the song, “Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts)” sung by Misty Edwards, “You Came (Lazarus)” by guest worship leaders Jonathan David and Melissa Helser of Bethel Music, and “River in the Rock,” an original song by guest worship leader and critically lauded singer-songwriter Audrey Assad.
This year’s album includes an emphasis on spontaneous choruses and songs the worship teams formed in the moment, helping recreate the atmosphere of live worship at the conference. The spirit present in the music is conveyed through the recording, allowing listeners to revisit powerful worship moments time and time again. This phenomena, present on other Onething albums but given special emphasis this year, is part of what connects so powerfully with listeners, whether or not they have attended a Onething conference.
