|SARAH KELLY’S BORN TO WORSHIP STREETS APRIL 1st
17 January 2008
Multi-GRAMMY-nominated recording artist and worship leader Sarah Kelly is poised for an April 1st release of her third album Born To Worship (Gotee/EMI CMG).
Born to Worship features 10 songs of what Kelly is calling “edgy, passionate worship” and chronicles her own personal survival story from self-hate and abuse.
“This album is a returning to my roots,” says Kelly. “As a child, way before I started dealing with self hate and ultimately falling into a series of abusive relationships, I wrote passionate, abandoned worship songs. Now I am freshly on the other side of those deadly addictions and have much to worship and praise about. My life has come full circle back to my first love as if I was truly born to worship. And now, because of my life experiences, there is a new depth, joy, and a revelation of the meaning of ‘grace’.”
Producer credits on Born To Worship go to Mitch Dane (Jars Of Clay, Bebo Norman) with Vance Powell (Martina McBride, Jars Of Clay) coming alongside as mix engineer. Daniel Huscroft also co-produced with Dane on the songs “Faithful Father” and “Amazing Grace”. Along with the title song, the album’s track listing includes the first radio single “Brand New Day”, as well as “You Overwhelm Me,” “Glorious King,” “Not Quite Home Yet,” “Faithful Father,” “Everything To Me,” “Beautiful God,” “Sit With You Awhile,” and a remake of the classic hymn “Amazing Grace.”
Take Me Away, Sarah Kelly’s 2004 Gotee Records’ debut, merited the singer-songwriter a bevy of attention from fans as well as industry, who gave her a GRAMMY nod in the “Best Rock Gospel Album” category. The album nabbed the #12 spot on the “Top Christian Albums” Soundscan chart first week out by selling more than 4,100 units, securing her as the highest new artist debut in the 10-year history of the Gotee label. The single “Take Me Way” also landed a No. 6 spot on the CHR radio charts. In 2005, the national retail store Guitar Center added Kelly’s image to the "World’s Largest Outdoor Photo Exhibit,” a gallery found on the outside of 140 Guitar Center stores all around the country. In addition, Kelly was one of the first Christian artists to have music exclusives featured on Sony Connect (www.sonyconnect.com). Kelly’s last album, Where The Past Meets Today, sold nearly 5,000 albums first week out, landing at #2 on Sound Scan’s Christian album chart, and merited yet another GRAMMY nomination. She also made a guest appearance on Rick Dee’s Top 40 Countdown syndicated radio show. Averaging 150-200 tour dates a year, Kelly has shared the stage with acts including Jars of Clay, Everyday Sunday, and Paul Wright.
