Join The NRTeam
​Unified Praise

Evidence, the latest release from Elevation Worship is being released under the name Elevation Collective--and there's a good reason for that. The team at Elevation Church joined forces with some of the world's biggest names in gospel music to create unique new versions of their recent worship hits.

What it Sounds Like:
This is exactly what you'd expect from the list of features: it's arena-sized worship colliding with some of the most powerful gospel voices we've ever heard. These new arrangements feel a little more like traditional "Church music" than their original renditions, with keyboards and power-packed key changes abounding. The sonic highlight is consistently the unbelievable singing. Evidence stands as a plausible lesson in how to do vocals right.

Spiritual Highlights: 
The collaborative nature of this project ensures that the atmosphere is that of the Body of Christ unified in praise. It's easy to get swept away in the moments created through vertical lyrics and the building avalanche of musical vamps, creating an experience that is participatory for the listener. 

Best Song on the Record:
Although there are no weak offerings in this tight 7 track collection, Israel Houghton's re-imagining of the hit "O Come to the Altar" stands out as a slow-building highlight that is, to use the cliche, even better than the original. The Walls Group's take on "Resurrecting" is a close runner-up. 

For Fans Of:
Israel Houghton, Travis Greene, Hillsong Worship

Final Word:
Sunday morning is often referred to as the most segregated hour in America. Evidence joyfully shatters that stereotype with a beautiful collision of gospel and contemporary worship that sees the unified Church praising a God who relentlessly loves all of us--a collision we as listeners are invited to be a part of.
