I just finished listening to this CD for my second time today. Wow! There is such a wide range of songs/styles/feelings on this disk. It’s wonderful. If you enjoy the songs of Israel and New Breed (“Say So“, “Alpha and Omega“, “We Have Overcome“), you will LOVE The Champion Center’s Champion’s Live. From the high energy opening songs of “We Lift our Hands” and “Rejoice” to the power ballad “I Will Run” (which is a DEFINATE pull our for choir/large worship team led worship!), this CD will have you dancing, crying, rejoicing, and praising the Lord!
As far as pull outs for worship…like much in this genre of music, it depends on your church and your team. This music is definately on the higher end of the difficulty scale. That’s not a bad thing! Not everything we do needs to be three chords and all in under 3 minutes, but this is most certainly on the other end of that. Your instrumentalists might certainly enjoy the challenge of these arrangements. Vocals better brush up on their “gospel”. “I Will Run” (ballad) is a certain pullout as well as “Nothing Compares” (a gospel meets pop, high energy “dancing at the throne” song).
