The six-time Grammy Award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir returns to their musical roots with their 29th album, Pray. This live album is a return to a familiar sound - a sound that many have come to know as the "BTC sound." While the concept is reminiscent of their first live album, Live: A Celebration of Worship and Praise, it is an alum for the church of today. The album's title track, "Pray," is a soul-stirring reminder of what Jesus said: "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." (Matthew 21:22)
Pray takes the listener on a musical journey with 14 new songs that are sure to captivate and rouse the soul. The first few songs take us to church with praise and worship that ushers the listener into a place of communion with Him. From the hand clapping, up-tempo, "Jesus Is," to the beautifully orchestrated "He Loved Me" - a reminder of when we first accepted His love, Pray takes the listener through a melodic voyage with the final destination, "Come To Jesus," constituting a sweet beckon to run to the arms of Christ.
"With so many tragic events happening in the world today, Pray serves as a reminder of the importance of having a relationship with Jesus, because communion is what He longs for His people to have with Him," Says Carol Cymbala, Founder and Chor Director of The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. "My hope is that the songs on this album will draw believers and non-believers to worship and believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
