10/26/2011 - Victory World Music Set To Release The Highly Anticipated CD Shake Heaven November 8, 2011
Victory World Music’s first studio album, Shake Heaven, releases November 8, 2011 and is being spearheaded by the multi-talented R&B Legend, Montell Jordan. The project marks Jordan’s first foray into the CCM music world, with the Grammy nominated star writing or co-writing all thirteen songs on the CD and overseeing production of the recording. In his role as Worship Leader at Victory World Church in Atlanta, Jordan is working with the church’s worship team to build a group of artists/musicians who are cross-cultural, cross-generational and who celebrate the diversity of music styles of the world. This is the mission of Victory World Church as their ten-thousand membership represent a wide cross-section of Americans with diverse lifestyles and musical tastes.
"Victory World Church is a place where God inhabits the praises of His people and where worship is a lifestyle,” explains Jordan. “The worshipers of Victory World Music are committed to taking back what belongs to God by creating Christ-centered music that may be enjoyed by the entire world of both believers and non-believers alike."
The title track was the first single from the new CD, Shake Heaven and also features Dove nominated artist, Beckah Shae, who also lends her talents to the first song on the album, Yes You Are (Yeshua). Let’s Go is a rousing declaration to raise your hands and let yourself go with your faith, because you can trust in the Lord. Breathe is a soulful ballad that says, More of You, Less of me/Set the bar, for me to reach/You said you are, and I believe/Savior, save me (save me). The acoustic guitar driven These Hands talks about the weight carried from our sins on Christ’s nail driven hands and When I See You celebrates the wholeness of Christ. The album is available at all digital retail outlets.
Victory World Church is one of the nation’s fastest growing worship centers, and is internationally active through missions, leadership training and pastoral mentorships. Victory World Music is an important outreach ministry of the church, which is translated through the power of music, and was a longtime vision of Senior Pastor's Dennis & Colleen Rouse that was birthed at Victory by Montell and Kristin Jordan in early 2011.
5/9/2011 - Victory World Church Launches Victory World Music
One of the nation’s fastest growing worship centers, Victory World Church is on an incredible growth track and is internationally active through missions, leadership training and pastoral mentorships. Now Victory World Church will continue this outreach through the power of music with this mission being embraced through the launch of Victory World Music. Senior Pastors Dennis & Colleen Rouse announced today that the new music ministry’s debut project is Shake Heaven, which is spearheaded by R&B legend Montell Jordan, worship pastor at Victory World Church. The project will be the church’s first studio album with the entire worship team and the title track is the first single that spotlights a duet with Dove nominated recording artist, Beckah Shae and Jordan. The song will be going for adds at radio in mid-May and will be promoted by industry vet, Chris Chicago. The CD is scheduled for release in late August.
“Victory World Church is a place where worship is a lifestyle, therefore the music that comes from here is a reflection of the lives that people are living,” says Jordan. “My only objective at Victory and with this project is to create an atmosphere of worship where God truly inhabits the praises of His people.”
“Since the very beginning of our church, we’ve always felt that God would open doors of worship that would cross generational and cultural barriers,” says Dennis Rouse, Senior Pastor “and through Montell’s leadership, we’re seeing that happen with more than 105 nationalities coming together in a worship experience each weekend.”
Montell Jordan brings his seventeen years of music business expertise to Shake Heaven, as Jordan was one of the leading R&B artists and producers from 1994 to 2010, when he left the industry to join Victory World Church’s worship ministry. Jordan released seven albums between his two record labels, Def Soul and Koch Records, and his mega-hit “This Is How We Do It,” garnered one Grammy nomination and two MTV award nominations. Jordan produced such high-profile acts as Deborah Cox, Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Boyz II Men, Christina Milian, 98 Degrees, Sisqo’, Dru Hill, and appeared in such films as The Fighting Temptations, The Nutty Professor, and Standing In The Shadows Of Motown. He was born in Los Angeles and graduated from Pepperdine University.
Victory World Church is known for its multi-cultural and multi-generational congregation that currently numbers around 9,500 in weekend attendance from over 105 nations. The ministry has expanded with a new satellite campus, Victory @Hamilton Mill in Buford as well as additional church plants in Georgia that include; Victory North in Kennesaw and Classic City Community Church in Athens. Worship is an integral part of the weekly worship service and the styles of music vary from week to week to touch the hearts of all the cultures in attendance. The main campus offers five worship services from Saturday night through Sunday evening which includes a Spanish service, Victory Vida, on Sunday evenings. Spanish translation is available in all services and French translation in the 11:00 am service only.
