Live from the 2022 Sing! Conference
Posted January 31, 2023
This excellent live album is from the 2022 Sing! Getty Worship Conference, which had a theme of Christ Our Hope in Life and Death. The twelve songs were pulled from a wonderful conference that took place at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center and the Grand Ole Opry over three days last September in Nashville. (Read my Reflections from the conference here).
In addition to Keith & Kristyn Getty and their incredible band, this album features Blessing Offor, Shane and Shane, CityAlight, Skye Peterson, Matt Papa, Matt Boswell, Bob Kauflin, Jordan Kauflin, Sandra McCracken, Joni Eareckson Tada, Matt Merker, Kirk Whalum and more.
It had to be hard to pick just a few songs among the many highlights from the conference. In addition to enjoying this album, I look forward to more music from the 2022 conference being released in the coming months.
