Uplifting Worship Experience

Joanna Beasley, formally known as Joanna Martino, released her debut album My World, in 2005 at the age of 19, just 3 years after advancing to the final 80 contestants in "American Idol." Her second album Patiently Waiting released in November, 1999. Joanna’s desire is to continue serving and pouring into others as Christ pours into her. Creating an atmosphere of worship and a place where her audience is focused to hear God speak to them, Joanna is ecstatic to bring her new music, her heart and the message of Grace to the world. Her new album Loud Love is loaded with melodic and worshipful songs speaking the Truth of the Word of God into the hearts of today's culture.

“Exalted One”
showcases not only Joanna’s gifts as a songwriter, but her shimmering, emotion-laden voice. The song is an infectious celebration of God’s faithfulness with an uplifting chorus based on Psalm 121: “We lift our eyes to You, where our help comes from, our hope is found in You, Jesus Lord of all, we lift our eyes to You, Exalted One.”

“Won My Heart”
is a love song to Jesus, “I want to open my heart to You God, Your love has overthrown every fear that I’ve known, over and over again, Your love has won my heart, the fight is over, here we are, living with the only God who knows my heart.”

Right from the opening notes of “Your Love,” you’ll be captivated by the melody and message. The song is a gorgeous and gentle reminder that if we have Jesus we have all we need. “What You did for me, what You’ve done for us…With Your Love, It’s Your Love, found in Your hope, it’s the anchor to our soul, we are redeemed.” Amen.

The album includes new recordings of some of Joanna’s favorite worship songs. Don’t miss her gorgeous covers of
“Rooftops” (Jesus Culture) and “I Will Rise” (Hillsong). Both songs are absolutely incredible prayers exclaiming God’s loud love for us, flawlessly delivered by Joanna’s sweet and sincere vocals.

I’m emotionally moved by the Doxology focused songs “Hallelujah” and “Jesus Savior” as they proclaim my heart’s cry to worship my King, Jesus. “Worthy are You God, Worthy is our God, Hallelujah, Hallelujah to the One who was, is, and always will be…God” beautifully flows into: “Hallelujah, Hallelujah, our God saves, our God saves, praise God from whom all blessings flow praise Him all creatures here below, praise Him above, ye Heavenly hosts, praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Amen.”

“Thank You”
is another prayer song that proclaims “I am Yours and You are mine, I have come to thank You for everything You’ve done and everything You’ve won, You have rescued me from the power of the grave.”  

The gorgeous and moving song “This Same Love” is a guaranteed hit song co-written and sung with Chris McClarney, who wrote “Your Love Never Fails.” Joanna sings this tender and prayerful ballad directly to God, “You made me beautiful, this same Love, who has conquered death / Is You great God, You saved me from the shame that I deserve / You’re a Good and Great God!” Amen. It’s one of my top worship songs of the year. “Boldly” is a great reminder the Lord is ready for us to approach His throne of grace. James 4:8 promises that when we draw near to God, He WILL draw near to us.

Closing Thoughts:

Joanna Beasley has pure and strong vocals that remind me of Jaci Velsquez. She clearly loves our Lord and Savior Jesus with all of her heart and wants to celebrate that fact with every song.  Joanna brings her walk with Jesus into her songwriting. Loud Love is filled with overwhelming biblical truth. She has captivating and catchy songs filled with inspirational lyrics. For me, Joanna brings sincerity and relatable themes that get deeper with each listen.  After repeated listens, the songs get deeper into the recesses of your heart with the challenging messages. If you are looking for one of the top worship albums of the year, then look no further than Loud Love. I’m sure it will continue to challenge, inspire and move me. This is truly a great album and an uplifting worship experience.
