Two brand-new songs, two stripped down versions of fan favorites, plus a live recording of "How Can It Be" will be included.

Her singles "How Can It Be" and "First" both reached #1 on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart and #1 on the Christian Digital Tracks Chart with "First" also reaching #1 on the NCA radio chart.
