Michael W. Smith is re-recording and releasing his best-selling album of all time, Worship, in honor of its 20th anniversary. Worship Forever will re-imagine the album live in front of an audience with a full symphony orchestra at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena on July 12 in Nashville.
Smith will be joined by special guests Amy Grant, Matt Redman, Tauren Wells and more for the live album, which will be released on September 10, 2021. Tickets are on sale now at Eventbrite.com and the performance will be released as a TV event later this year.
Originally released on September 11, 2001, the double Platinum Worship offered hope during a time of despair and mourning following 9/11. “The Worship record was a special one for me,” recalls Smith. “From the recording live in Lakeland, Florida – to the release on 9/11– the day our nation was attacked. I’ve seen God use those songs and that music in ways I could have never dreamed. I’m so excited, now, to be reimagining this record, start to finish, with a full symphony orchestra. It’s going to be a special recording and night.”
