The multi-cultural worship collective Village Lights released their full-length debut album, Kingdom, today. The trio includes Sarah Kroger, Ricky Vazquez, and Ike Ndolo. Village Lights released their self-titled EP earlier this year, which introduced their heartbeat of unity, inclusivity, and reconciliation wrapped in worshipful devotion. Village Lights see themselves as more than a band, but rather a movement for those who seek justice in our world and the church. The project was produced by GRAMMY-nominated Matt Maher, who has also acted as a mentor for the band. Click here to listen to the album.

"Music is always best when made in a community," shares renowned worship leader and songwriter Matt Maher. "This requires such a level of trust. Every great artist knows this fundamental truth. Art is something best shared. I love this group and their willingness to include so many in their journey of creativity, and I'm honored to help them as a producer bring this treatment of the end of the liturgical year into a collective work of song for the church and the pilgrimage of the believer."

The group was inspired by the traditional liturgical feast 'Christ the King of the Universe,' which was historically implemented in the church at a time of rising tide of nationalism around the world. The feast was a way to reunite God's people around the idea that our allegiances lie with Christ our King. Each song is based on the Scriptures surrounding that feast day, making it an immersive sonic, artistic, and theological experience.

"We feel like this is a very timely record," shares Village Lights. "There seems to be an urgent need now more than ever for all God's people to unite under Christ and His kingship. Revelation 7:9 says, 'After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands.' We hope this record can be a soundtrack that moves people toward unity."

Accompanying this special project are stunning music videos that were shot in Sedona, Arizona. Each video intentionally brings a visual element to remind and showcase the beauty and greatness of God. This weekend, Village Lights will be leading worship for the National Catholic Youth Conference, with more than 12,000 in attendance and more tuning in virtually. Leaders can also find chords and resources on We Are Worship here.
