Beginning today (April 5), Planetshakers also releases the single “I Choose You” from Rain Part 2 to iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and more digital and streaming outlets everywhere. The song, which is led by Joth Hunt (who also produced and mixed the EP), declares that God is the one to look to, no matter what the circumstances.
“God had me write that song a week before I knew this was going to happen. It was the perfect tool God helped me to use to declare victory over the situation,” says Joth, adding, “It’s easy to sing these songs week-to-week, but when you are actually going through it, these lyrics become more…they become an anthem.”
Hunt’s story of writing “Only Way” and overcoming cancer can be seen in two “A Miraculous Journey” video parts available now at youtu.be/Acv3bUtda6A (Part 1) and youtu.be/ft7TRpJz-Ck (Part 2).
Along with Hunt, both Rain Part 2 and Rain Part 1 (released in January) EPs are led by Planetshakers’ worship leaders Sam Evans, Aimee Evans, BJ Pridham, Rudy Nikkerud,Chelsi Nikkerud and more. A tangible, intentional expression of worshippers collectively pursuing the presence of God, the new recordings precede the annual Planetshakers Conference launching with the “Rain” theme this year at Melbourne Arena in Melbourne, AUApril 10 and at Royal International Convention Centre in Brisbane, AU (Bowen Hills QLD) April 16. The promotional video for the events can be seen at youtu.be/veN7GFxWeHA.
Sharing the new music live at these conferences, Planetshakers’ new songs will also be broadcast live via the Daystar Television Network. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Planetshakers has partnered with Daystar to exclusively air its conference on the network to millions in over 180 countries around the world.
“2019 will mark the 22nd year that Planetshakers Conference has been lifting up the name of Jesus to a generation,” says Planetshakers Church Sr. Pastors Russell and Sam Evans. “We feel that just as rain is formed naturally by the sun’s heat evaporating water, that our prayers, praise and worship have been reaching heaven all this time. Rain forms when there is a cool change and there is a change in the atmosphere. We are believing that at this conference there will be an unprecedented outpouring of the rain of heaven.”
“With over 20,000 members, Planetshakers Church is influencing the global community in profound ways through a growing reach that spans nine campuses in Australia, Europe, Singapore, South Africa and the United States,” adds Joshua Brown of Planetshakers. “And with the widespread popularity of Planetshakers TV, annual conferences, and the worldwide music distribution of Planetshakers Band, millions are being impacted for eternity by the message of the Gospel.”
