Bethel Music, the worship ministry of Redding, CA-based Bethel Church, launched its acclaimed, multi-artist 16-track, double-disc live recording, Have It All, internationally Friday, March 11. In its debut week at retail, Have It All hit No. 6 on the Billboard Top Albums chart becoming Bethel Music's highest retail debut on the chart ever (2015's We Will Not Be Shaken hit No. 9, 2014's You Make Me Brave hit No. 10). Have It All also perched at No. 1 on the overall iTunes® Albums chart in the US for six straight days. The album further became a worldwide hit, reaching iTunes' overall No. 1 in Canada, No. 3 in Australia, No. 6 in Brazil, No. 7 in the UK, No. 24 in Germany and No. 63 in France.
 
Have It All is the first live recording at Bethel Church since 2012's For The Sake of The World, and features Brian and Jenn Johnson, Jeremy Riddle, Steffany Gretzinger, Amanda Cook, William Matthews, Jonathan David Helser, Paul and Hannah McClure, Kalley Heiligenthal, Josh Baldwin and Bethel newcomers Leeland and Cory Asbury.
 
This collective of creatives share in each others' experiences as they drink deeply from the well of community forged from decades of worshipping and living life. Over the course of the past several years, the worship leaders who call Bethel home have walked through seasons of loss, grief, joy and victory, not only as a body of believers, but also as friends who feel like family. Turning those seasons into songs, the group created the blueprint for Have It All.
 
"When you're friends with all these guys, and you know what they've walked through...and then a song comes out of that season, there's always a backstory to it," says Brian Johnson. "We all had similar things happen--whether good or bad--and this album goes to show that we all made it through the journey and we have something to show for it in the form of a song."
 
The first single and title track from the recording, "Have It All," which has already become the top-played track on Spotify's Praise & Worship Songs playlist while also being billed as the No. 5 track on Spotify's all-genre New Releases section, is an anthem of surrender Brian wrote and later embraced as he struggled with debilitating anxiety attacks. He candidly shares this story in the video here.
 
In addition to writing "Have It All" and leading the 16-artist team at Bethel Music along with his wife, Jenn, Brian has penned some of today's most well-known worship songs, including: We Will Not Be Shaken," "One Thing Remains" (2013's No. 1 ASCAP Christian Music song), "Love Came Down" (featured on American Idol 2012), "You Have Won Me" and "For The Sake Of The World."
 
As the songs on Have It All are released worldwide, Bethel's biggest desire is for the message to outweigh the person leading the song. "At the end of the day, I think it's important that we're pointing people to Him instead of even the songs or our movement," says Brian. "I think it's really important that it wouldn't just end with people looking at us, but that we'd be like signs to Him. If that happened, that would be enough for me, because then we'd feel like we did the work we're called to do with this album."
 
Have It All follows five acclaimed Bethel Music albums that all went to the top of Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart, including We Will Not Be Shaken (2015), Amanda Cook's Brave New World (2015), You Make Me Brave (2014), Tides Live (2014) and Tides (2013). Furthermore, Without Words: Synesthesia (2015), The Undoing (2014), by Bethel Music's Steffany Gretzinger, and For The Sake Of The World (2013), all hit No. 2 on the Billboard Top Christian Album's chart.
 
Taking the new songs from Have It All and growing list of worship favorites like the aforementioned songs and "This Is Amazing Grace" (an ASCAP "Song of the Year"), "Forever," "You Are Good," "You Make Me Brave" (GMA Canada Covenant Awards "Song of the Year") and more on the road, Bethel Music "Worship Nights" have seen worshippers fill to capacity major venues at events coast-to-coast and internationally.
 
This month Bethel Music artists Jeremy Riddle, Amanda Cook, William Matthews, Josh Baldwin and Hunter Thompson continue their European tour that has seen sold out "Worship Nights" events, including at today's London, England event. The tour continues in Leeds, England (3/22), Glasgow, Scotland (3/23) and Belfast, Northern Ireland (3/24, Sold Out).
 
Next month, Bethel Music artists are featured in major market theaters, churches and other venues across North America during two concurrent tours. Amanda Cook's "Brave New World Tour" launches first on April 12 in Charlotte, NC, followed by events in Washington, D.C. (4/13), New York, NY (4/14), East Falmouth, MA (4/15), Toronto, ON (4/17), Fairfield, CT (4/18), Birmingham, AL (4/20), Atlanta, GA (4/21) and Nashville, TN (4/22). "Premium" tickets for these events include general admission tickets as well as an interactive ministry and question and answer time with Amanda Cook before the event.
 
Bethel Music's Steffany Gretzinger, William Matthews, Jeremy Riddle, Melissa Helser, Jonathan David Helser join Bethel's "Midwest Worship Nights U.S.A. Tour" that begins April 15 in Cincinnati, OH followed by events in Columbus, OH (4/16, sold out), Detroit, MI (4/18), Indianapolis, IN (4/19), Pittsburgh, PA (4/20, sold out), Chicago, IL (4/22), Green Bay, WI (4/23) and Minneapolis, MN (4/24). Each of these dates will feature "Bethel Breakouts" sessions, which is a time before the Worship Nights events for attendees to gather with like-minded people, growing together in what it looks like to pursue God's presence, as well as to ask questions of the Bethel Music team, be a part of an intimate acoustic worship session and more. Find tickets to all events here.
 
The above events all lead up to the Heaven Come Conference to be held May 25-27 in Los Angeles. Drawing participants from all around the world, the conference will feature not only the Bethel Music team, but other internationally known speakers and worship leaders.
