Worship Leader Phil Wickham unveiled Singalong 4 (LIVE) today. Featuring special guests Matt Redman and Brian and Jenn Johnson (Bethel Music), the live worship experience captures a special evening of raw and honest worship that took place in Southern, CA with Phil Wickham and friends alongside a community of worshipers.
"The idea of these 'singalong' records started one night several years ago in Portland, Oregon. It was just me, my guitar, and a few thousand college students singing out songs of worship together. That night we pressed record and captured something truly special. It was simple, raw, and honest. That recording became the first 'singalong' record," shared Wickham. "Ever since that first recording it has been a dream of mine for these 'singalong' projects to become something more than just records tied to my name."

What it Sounds Like:
The first time I heard Phil Wickham's song "Grace" from his self-titled major label debut, I was hooked by his enthusiastic and reverent songs, layered with a Brit-rock musical vibe. I've felt that he's improved with each new album and Singalong 4 takes me to another realm of holiness and thirsting for God's presence. Phil Wickham has breathed several new worship anthems into the Church ("You're Beautiful," "Cannons," "Because of Your Love," "At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh)," “This is Amazing Grace,” “My All in All,” “Stand in Awe,” “Living Hope”). We sing all of those songs at my church on a regular basis, and if you liked the studio versions of “Living Hope,” “Great Things,” “Anthem” and “Till I Found You,” you’ll love these anointed live recordings.
What it Sounds Like: "You've been faithful through every storm / You'll be faithful forevermore / You have done great things / And I know You will do it again / For Your promise is "Yes and amen" are the biblical cries of worship in the heartfelt and soul-stirring song "Great Things." You’ll also instantly “singalong” with “Tethered,” “Till I Found You,” “Anthem" and "Living Hope," which features guest vocals from Bethel Music’s Brian and Jenn Johnson. Each song includes tender and powerful vocals and takes listeners on an emotional and spiritual journey with every lyric sung about our faith in Jesus. Every song is completely anointed, Spirit-led and emotionally captivating. A sincere desire to experience the presence of God can be heard in every song, with expressions like “The cross has spoken / I am forgiven / The King of Kings calls me His own / Beautiful Savior / I'm Yours forever / Jesus Christ, my living hope" in the standout instant classic “Living Hope.”
Best Song on the Record:
I’ve been blessed by “Living Hope” since I first heard the song. Each version of the song is better in my opinion, with this one being the most dynamic and exciting yet. The song is a biblically-inspired standout, co-written with Bethel Music’s Brian Johnson, and the lyrics proclaim the cry of my heart. I'm really engaged by the emotional vocals and the deep, prayerful lyrics throughout the album. There are several other standout songs, including a gorgeous medley of “Tremble / What A Beautiful Name” and the worship classic, “Heart of Worship” featuring Matt Redman. If you've always enjoyed Wickham’s corporate worship anthems, you're in for a treat with this album. It has a great balance of upbeat and reflective songs and it is chock-full of songs for the Church as well as songs for personal reflection and worship.
This album provides listeners with songs that proclaim acceptance of God’s love in any circumstance. Singalong 4 provides words of appreciation and adoration of God. Phil’s enthusiastic and reverent style of writing and singing praise and worship songs has consistently been a draw for me. His prayerful sentiments are consistently filled with his personal adoration of God - I've felt that he's improved with each new album and this is my favorite live worship album. It is completely worshipful in the style of Phil's previous offerings of enthusiastic praise and worship, and every single song could be added to your Sunday morning worship set.
