Worship leaders Bryan & Katie Torwalt just released their new album Champion and the popular worship leaders share the impact their new worship music has made on them and in some communities already.
The Jesus Culture / Capitol CMG release is the first new album since the husband-and-wife worship duo's last studio release Kingdom Come in 2013. Katie revealed that their new album was done awhile back but they just kept adding songs to it so now is the perfect time for the world to hear it.
"The heart [of Champion] really is about overcoming, and hope, and God being our champion and fighting for us. The song 'Champion' came to me about a year ago and I was just in my room and had been in a season of battling a lot of fear and anxiety in life, irrational stuff and rational stuff. Experiencing some disappointment and some stuff that was out of my control," Katie told The Christian Post. more >>
