Harmonizing with Good Friday and Easter, California-based worship leader Phil Wickham released the timely “Living Hope” on Good Friday. The single was co-written with Brian Johnson (Bethel Music) and impacted radio on Friday too. Wickham offered listeners a sneak peek infused countdown on social media. Speaking to the resounding power of the song, churches across the country organically picked up on the track before its release.
“Last year, Brian Johnson (Bethel Music) and I started writing a song over text,” shares Wickham. “Over the course of a month we threw lyrics and voice memos back and forth. The result of all of those text messages was this song, ‘Living Hope.’ I remember both of us feeling that something special had been given to us, and it’s become an anthem at both of the churches where we lead. The fact that this song has already found its way into other church communities before it’s even been released makes me so excited for what God has in store.”
“Living Hope” marks the first single from Wickham’s anticipated new record due out later this year. The newest collection of music will follow suit with his 2016 release Children Of God which critics noted was “Phil Wickham at his best” (Worship Leader).
Wickham will continue his consistent tour schedule marking dates in New Mexico, Washington, Texas, Colorado, Arizona and his home state of California. For the latest info, visit www.PhilWickham.com.
