Produced by Paul Mabury, Worth It All is a collection of 11 original tracks all but one written or co-written by Andrews. Through the upcoming album, Andrews seeks to remind people of the meaning and value of “worth” and what is of greatest “worth” to them. As Andrews recently noted, “Only Jesus is worthy of it all. My life, my heart, my every breath, my authentic love, my worship. He is everything. He is Worth It All.”

Meredith Andrews [Worth It All]| Posted January 07, 2013 Meredith Andrews’ albums have received well-deserved acclaim for her premier songwriting and singing ability. Five years ago, Meredith’s debut albumThe Invitationincluded the hit song “You’re Not Alone.” Meredith followed up with her next "best" album, Dove Award winning Worship Album of the Year, As Long As It Takes. With her previous recordings, Andrews focused on a theme and wrote poetic and worshipful commentary with songs about her walk with Jesus. Worth It Allis the newest “best” album by Meredith Andrews. While not a departure from her signature piano-based style, this album builds on the momentum of Meredith’s vertical worship songs “New Song We Sing,” “How Great is the Love” and recent number one inspirational song, “Not for a Moment (After All).” She has written and recorded an entire album loaded with songs that all bring listeners the Throne Room focusing on how God is “Worth It All.”
Each of her albums have had at least one song that pulls my heart strings and brings out an emotional response. From "You’re Not Alone" and “Draw Me Nearer” to "Come Home" and “All Will Fade Away,” I always expect at least one of Meredith’s songs to make me cry. On Worth It All there are several personal songs that melt my heart including“Start With Me,” “All I Ask” and “Burn Away.” Meredith is the premier female worship song writer in all of Christian music, along with Christy Nockels, Brooke Fraser Ligertwood and Mia Fieldes. She consistently writes and sings piercing, relevant and moving songs. If you are looking for an entire album of songs like Dove Award winning Worship Song of the Year "Your Great Name" as recorded by Natalie Grant, look no further than Meredith Andrews. What's especially cool about this album is how Meredith invites listeners into her life by sharing what's on her heart. She dwells on prayerful yearnings, lays out spiritual truths and worships God all at the same time. Opening vertical worship songs "Open Up the Heavens,” “Not for a Moment (After All)” and “Strong God” beautifully set the tone for this 5 star masterpiece with her signature powerful vocals and worship filled lyrics. This can be gorgeous background music, but don't miss out on what Meredith has to say in each song.
For me, the lyrical highlights can be found in the emotionally heartfelt songs “Start With Me,” “Worth It All,” “All I Ask” and “Burn Away” along with “The Gospel Changes Everything.” All of these songs worship with awe and wonder the greatness of the Cross. The title track includes the vulnerable and prayerful lyrics, "I let go of all I have, just to have all of You, and no matter what the cost, I will follow You, Jesus everything I’ve lost, I have found in You, when I finally reach the end, I’ll say, You are worth it all!" Amen. The song is a gorgeous offering to our Savior and Redeemer Jesus. “All I Ask” is a gorgeous song with another prayerful refrain reminding me of Hillsong UNITED’s brilliant and gorgeous song "All I Need Is You" both in music and message. I hang on every note as Meredith belts out her heart cry to God-“All I Ask, All I seek is You, is You, All I want, All I need is You.” Tying everything together is the standout song “Not for a Moment (After All)” which beautifully proclaims the Truth from Romans 8:35—"Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ." Amen.
CLOSING THOUGHTS Meredith Andrews’ excellent songwriting, singing and captivating songs have made her my favorite female worship songwriter and singer. If you like Christy Nockels, Brooke Fraser Ligertwood and Natalie Grant, you must get Worth It All by Meredith Andrews. The standout congregational worship songs are "Open Up the Heavens,”“Not for a Moment (After All),” “Strong God” and “Worth It All.” Don’t miss the gut-wrenching personal songs “Start With Me,” “All I Ask” and “Burn Away.” Truly, every song is amazing. It's hard to imagine, but Meredith has now once again released her "best" album topping her previous excellent work. This is the most spine-tingling female led worship project I've experienced and all of these songs are completely anointed, Spirit-led and emotionally captivating. There are no weak songs and this album is truly a masterpiece. Worth It All is flawless and overflows with worship-driven emotional responses to our Lord and Savior. This is sure to be among the top worship albums of 2013.
