Here Is My Worship [edit]
by Jaye Thomas | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: September 09, 2014
 

Jaye Thomas has been a household name among the International House of Prayer community since moving to Kansas City in 2008. Thomas is well known for his many original songs that have been featured on various Forerunner Music compilations and Onething Live albums, such as "We Make Room," and "We Love Your Name." He also has many popular co-writes with Cory Asbury, such as "Shekinah," and "Holy Ghost Party." Through his leadership in worship and excellence in music, Thomas follows in the footsteps of a long line of ministers in his family, as well as those of his great-aunt and renowned blues legend, Nina Simone.

Here Is My Worship is Thomas' first full-length album since his debut effort, PRAY, released while he was serving as a worship pastor at a church in North Florida, fresh from a season of studying jazz at Duke University. Here Is My Worship is a collection of heartfelt gospel and worship songs recorded live at the International House of Prayer's Onething 2012 and 2013 conferences. Accompanying Thomas' powerful vocals on every track is The Cry, a dynamic vocal ensemble which has also featured on two of his singles, "Higher," and "Standing," and on multiple Onething Live albums.

Here Is My Worship begins with a rendition of the classic, "O Come, Let Us Adore Him," in which Thomas' phenomenal vocal talent is immediately obvious, then flows seamlessly into the soaring, anthemic "Come, Holy Spirit," a prophetic invitation led by Thomas; "Come, Holy Spirit, we have need of You // Oh, how we long for you!"

"Treasure," another of the album's stand-out tracks, features compelling vocal rhythms and melodies and really shines in its musically intricate bridge--superb instrumentation from a highly energetic group which includes two former touring members of the Eddie James Band: keyboardist Marlon Robertson and drummer Richard Town. These names are joined by famed mix engineer Noel Hall, known for his years of work with Fred Hammond as musical director, among other roles.

"Clean" takes its inspiration from Jude 1:24, an earnest cry to be made holy before the eyes of the Lord and presented faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. "Praise Adonai" finds the band at its most animated as Thomas and The Cry express their longing for the return of Jesus, singing, "this is the heartbeat of heaven, this is the cry of the nations, we hear the Spirit, and we are the Bride saying, 'Come, Lord Jesus!'"

The album bows out with "O Lord, You're Beautiful," a moving and highly nostalgic song of adoration by Keith Green, and the album-closer, "We Won't Stop," in which Thomas and The Cry declare in tandem with 25,000 worshipers, "We won't stop 'til we have more!"

An Offering Of Worship | Posted September 05, 2014
Powerhouse gospel vocalist and worship leader Jaye Thomas is back for the first time since his debut in 2008. This time, he brings us a Spirit-filled album recorded live at the OneThing Conference and appropriately named Here Is My Worship. After coming from a long line of minsters and studying jazz at Duke University, it's no surprise that Jaye is not only good, but also passionate at what he does. 

With the help of vocal ensemble The Cry singing background, this album finds the diversity to catch you from the beginning and keep your attention until the last note. 

"Oh Come Let Us Adore Him / Come Holy Spirit" takes a Christmas classic and tastefully turns it into a simple song of praise, setting the tone of worship for the rest of the album. Well known worship songs like "Agnus Dei", "Holy Is The Lord", and "O Lord You're Beautiful" make their way into the final cut, with each version giving a new sound to the already well-done tracks. "Treasure" places emphasis on the value of God and the reward we have in Him, while "Clean" talks of our strive to be pure and right in His eyes. 

"Fill Me" and "We Make Room" are moving prayers for more of God and His presence. Such songs as "How Long - Praise Adonai", "Simple Song", "Here Is My Worship", and closing song "We Won't Stop" serve as powerful yet catchy and memorable calls to worship God for all He is and all He's done. 

Closing Thoughts:
There's no doubt that Jaye Thomas is talented and this album is proof of that. His silky smooth yet fearlessly solid voice controls every track, leading his audience of 25,000 into a wonderful time of anointed worship. Big things are sure to be in store for any man who puts as much passion and soul into his projects as Jaye has demonstrated here.
