What You Need To Know
Bethel Music releases their latest live worship collection, Victory (Live). This project features familiar Bethel Music voices such as Brian and Jenn Johnson, Cory Asbury and more, as well as some new voices such as Molly Skaggs, Bethany Wohrle, Emmy Rose and Daniel Bashta.

What It Sounds Like
No stranger to musical excellence and exploration, Bethel seems to have stepped out even more stylistically with Victory (Live). Even in subtle ways, these songs reveal the influence of various genres such as folk ("Raise A Hallelujah"), country ("Goodness of God") bluegrass ("Ain't No Grave"), while still creating moments of God's people singing and experiencing Him together in corporate worship, which Bethel does so well ("Praise Is A Highway", "Promises Never Fail"). 

Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights
These songs were born out of Bethel Music artists facing and overcoming real trials in their lives, such as Brain Johnson's battles with anxiety or the life-threatening sickness of Bethel Music CEO Joel Taylor's son. These declarations are honest and faith-filled. It's clear that they are written and sung from a place of clinging to God's character and promises and declaring the hope and victory we have in Him over every circumstance.

Best Song On The Record
"Stand In Your Love" stands out as the best song on the record. The song creates an atmosphere that feels like house worship and it's a really special moment on the album.

Final Word
Victory (Live) is a collection of songs that will bring you into an encounter with God, empower you to sing His promises over your circumstances, and give you a variety of musical styles to enjoy while you do it. 

Buy the album on Apple Music or stream it on Spotify.
