GRAMMY-nominated and multi-Dove Award Winning worship leader, Kari Jobe offers up serves up a brand new sing titled “First Love”.
Despite her deep desire to lead worship with a live audience for this project, the album was uniquely recorded and captured live this summer during the pandemic without an audience at her home church, The Belonging Co, in Nashville, TN.
“Recording this album live without an audience was something I wrestled with, but I really felt God say to keep moving forward,” shares Kari Jobe. “I felt like if I waited, I would be disobeying the Lord. I’m trusting that these songs are meant to release hope right now in this uncertain season. When I was working on this new album, I wanted to think about the church – little did I know that I would have to have the ‘church’ in my heart when I recorded a live album as well.”
“First Love,” is a heart cry to return back to God based on Revelation 2. The song begins with the lyrics “I’m returning to the secret place / Just an altar and a flame / Love is found here / In our sacred space / I hear Your voice I see Your face.” The first video from the live taping debuted this week as well.
