One of the amazing things we get to participate in each year is the incredible Night of Worship event. This event has attracted top artists covering a wide variety of musical stylings, but really all there for the same thing, to worship and praise Jesus Christ. This shining light in the middle of an incredible event representing every type of music you can imagine has always been a highlight. Past events have featured people like Matt Maher, Israel Houghton, Doyle Dykes, Lincoln Brewster, Peter Furler and more! An unfortunate schedule conflict will keep us away from the event this year, but if you are in the Anaheim area this event is open to ALL! While NAMM registered attendees will have priority, anyone is welcome. You simple won’t believe the incredible job these hard working volunteers to converting the hotel ballroom into a state of the art music facility. Incredible sound, incredible lighting, amazing video on multiple HD video walls and more. How about a little more detail?
Featuring performances by Christian music artists Lauren Daigle and For All Seasons, and hosted by Worship Musician magazine and Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI), this lively session will take place in the Pacific Ballroom of the Hilton Anaheim on Thursday, January 25 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. during the 2018 NAMM Show in Anaheim. It also will be streamed live on the CCLI website at www.NAMMNightofWorship.com
Grammy-nominated Centricity Music artist Lauren Daigle has been recognized with multiple GMA Dove Awards, including New Artist of the Year, 2015 Song of the Year for her single, “Can It Be,” as well as Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Best Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year with her 2016 single “Trust in You.” Her album “How Can it Be” was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. One year after its release, her holiday album Behold: A Christmas Collection rose to number one on Billboard’s current Contemporary Christian Chart in late 2017.
Southern California-based For All Seasons received immediate acclaim for their debut single, “Higher.” The song hit the Top 4 of iTunes’ Hot Track chart for the Christian & Gospel genre on its release date, has enjoyed extensive airplay, and has been added to popular streaming playlists such as Spotify’s Top Christian Hits. “Higher” currently has over 300,000 listens on Spotify, and its lyric video has over 40,000 views on YouTube.
