Michael's USA Today, Yahoo! Music and CCM Magazine-acclaimed studio album, A Million Lights, releases today (Feb. 16) and will be available at digital retail and streaming outlets everywhere, including iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.com.
Following the release of A Million Lights, which features the title track, "Love Always Wins," "Crashing Waves," "Revolution" and 9 more songs, Michael launches his highly anticipated live worship album Surrounded the following Friday, Feb. 23. Leading a diverse chorus of voices, the full-length live album features the declarative "Surrounded (Fight My Battles)" and "Light To You," which are available as instant downloads now with each iTunes preorder of the album.
In many ways, Michael is a statesman, at the fulcrum of Christian music in pivotal moments It is said that the heart of a lion never goes away, and Michael isn't content staying with the equilibrium. At a loss for what his voice should be toward the end of 2016, this prolific artist comes roaring back with A Million Lights and Surrounded albums in a countercultural response to the divisive national sentiment of 2017 and the mean-spirited banter on social media.
"Until the world ends, music is the most powerful language there is," says Michael. "It can transform your life on every level, not just the spiritual. It can help people reconnect with why they're here."
