Already released in India, Pearl City Worship's debut album, produced by Eskelin, soared to No. 1 on the iTunes "Religious" sales chart, topping Hindu, Muslim and all other religious recordings in India. In a city of multiple religions, social and economic bifurcation, and almost two million living in slums, the light of Christ is shining through the music and message of Pearl City Worship.
"Impacting culture is what I feel sets Pearl City apart of other churches in our city," says Pearl City Church Pastor, Scott Norling. "We have a unique culture from within for sure, but what matters most to us is not as much what is going on inside, but our impact outside the church."
"I think God strategically put us here in Hyderabad so we can pull down Heaven into this place," adds Worship and Creative Pastor of Pearl City Church, Allen Ganta. "They have a hundred million gods here. They don't mind adding Jesus into this pantheon of gods, but where is the real truth? After looking for answers everywhere, and praying to all these gods, it's only after you find Jesus that you'll have the answer for everything."
That is the message of the dynamic and declarative opening track, "The Answer," from We Won't Be Silent, which is featured in the music bed of the video introduction to the band found at https://vimeo.com/146425429.
Other stand out tracks on the album include "The One Who Saves Us," a song that has so shaped Pearl City Church that its lyrics are literally written on the church's walls. The track "My Strong Hope" anchors this church that has faced profound persecution, while the prayerful "Where You Are" is a cry for God's presence.
