LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 12, 2020) -- GRAMMY® nominated Elevation Worship celebrates two major milestones today with their release of GRAVES INTO GARDENS. The project, which dropped May 1, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart and broke an Apple Music record in the Christian & Gospel genre garnering the title as most pre-added album of all time - a meaningful streaming milestone indicating true user engagement that is akin to a pre-order on iTunes. The full-length live compilation and 11th career project from the group has catapulted into the hearts and homes of millions around the globe at a time when hope is needed now, more than ever.

"I hope the songs on this album would revive hope and stir faith that God is still specializing in resurrection," says Elevation Worship's Chris Brown. "He's still turning mourning into dancing, turning our heaviness into praise. And he's still making beautiful things, out of seemingly hopeless situations."

 



GRAVES INTO GARDENS is comprised of 12 newly-penned tracks including the blockbuster song "The Blessing" (with Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes) that has garnered more than 12 million YouTube views in just seven weeks. "RATTLE!," a song birthed during the current COVID-19 pandemic and featured as the opening track on the album peaked at #8 trending overall on YouTube, amassing more than 2.4 million views since it's Easter week debut. Both singles also peaked at No. 1 Billboard's Christian Digital Song Sales chart.

Elevation Worship is the musical expression of Elevation Church, a multisite church based in Charlotte, N.C. founded by lead Pastor Steven Furtick. Over the past 14 years, it has grown into a global phenomenon drawing a weekly attendance of more than 25,000 with locations from Toronto to Orlando; in addition to their worldwide online audience.
