About The Passion Movement:The Passion Movement and the messages of founder Louis Giglio have marked the lives of millions of people around the globe, calling people everywhere to live for the glory of God. From its inception, the movement of Passion has birthed new anthems of worship, influencing countless churches and helping to define the current worship climate and establish artists Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill and others. Louie Giglio is the pastor and founder of Passion City Church in Atlanta, GA.Some of the songs on this album were written specifically for Passion 2016, while others are songs we've been singing in our church for a while now. I really enjoyed the album for several reasons. One was the big names that are always favorites in our house that were featured, including Crowder, Chris Tomlin, and Matt Redman. Another reason is that while this is an album of praise songs, they also really have their own distinct sound.
