Christian Music News, New Christian Music News GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award winning worship leader, pastor and author, William McDowell, released his new live album, The Cry (Integrity Music), on September 20th, and it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Gospel Albums Chart. This is McDowell's fifth No. 1 debut album in his storied career. The Cry was recorded at Redemption to the Nations Church in Chattanooga, TN and features special guest artists Nathaniel Bassey, Travis Greene, Yolanda Adams, David & Nicole Binion, Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Trinity Anderson (worship leader of McDowell's Deeper Fellowship church). The Cry is available here

The album is already receiving praise from media being touted as some of his best work to date.

This is not a normal album! This is not a cookie-cutter "worship" album. So many powerful songs of declaration, worship, triumph, desperation, reassurance and more. - New Release Today Review

"Stay," from its string-laden intro to the conclusion, is a beautiful and melodically distinctive ballad about heavenly healing that encapsulates the album's theme of the power of prayer. It is arguably McDowell's finest work to date and is among one of the loveliest gospel songs this year. - Journal of Gospel Music Review

For 20 years, McDowell has been writing songs crying out for God to bring revival. However, his latest release is not a collection of songs crying out for God to come; rather it's a collection of songs written as a response to a God who already has. Two decades ago, McDowell began praying for revival to break out in his community, and on May 22, 2016, the presence of God entered his church of Deeper Fellowship in Orlando and has yet to leave.

The church has recorded over 300 different healings and miracles to date. What's more... the revival doesn't seem to be slowing down. The congregation has grown from a group of 15 to over 1,000 in just five years. People line up outside the church to attend Sunday services. The Cry is a powerful collection that puts to melody what God has been doing in his church and with these people.
