NASHVILLE, Tenn. –Gospel Music Hall of Fame members and GRAMMYÂ® Award winners theÂ Gaither Vocal BandÂ will release an all-new performance video onÂ Friday, May 18th.Â Â We Have This MomentÂ (Gaither Music Group) captures stage performances of 14 of the groupâ€™s recorded songs, most of which can be found on the companionÂ We Have This MomentÂ CD, which released in October of last year.Â Produced by famed country and gospel music performer and studio musicianÂ Gordon Mote, the CD recording debuted atÂ #1Â on theÂ Southern Gospel chartÂ and atÂ #4Â on theÂ Contemporary Christian Music chart, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
â€œThe longer I live the more I learn to appreciate here and now,â€ stated group founder and bass singerBill Gaither, â€œthis momentâ€¦this place in lifeâ€¦ this group of people with whom I am privileged to collaborate on these songs.Â I am blessed beyond measure by these men and by the way our collective contributions have brought something very special to this collection of songs.Â I hope you are as blessed by this recording as we have been to create it.â€
That creation, recorded by group members Gaither,Â Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd SuttlesÂ andReggie Smith, includes performances of several harmony-based tunes, Gaither classics and some of todayâ€™s most popular worship songs of the church, including the worship anthemsÂ â€œChain Breakerâ€andÂ â€œJesus Messiah.â€
â€œFor me, â€˜Jesus Messiahâ€™ is a great song of perspective that Jesus came not to be served. He came to serve,â€ stated Hampton.Â â€œItâ€™s a great reminder to me of why we are here. Iâ€™m not here for you to do something for me. Iâ€™m here to serve you because thatâ€™s exactly what Jesus did for us.Â He came for one purpose, and that was to rescue sinners.â€
â€œIâ€™ll Worship Only at the Feet of Jesus,â€Â penned byÂ Gloria Gaither, Bill Gaither andÂ J.D. Miller, is a beloved favorite that longtime fans of the group will recognize.Â â€œI like the line in this song that says, â€˜Thereâ€™ll be no other gods before Him,â€™” stated Suttles.Â â€œSometimes we have to sit back and look at whatâ€™s really important–at what really matters. Whatâ€™s the purpose of what weâ€™re doing? What do we want the final result to be? I think sometimes we get hung up on things that wonâ€™t really matter in the end.Â We focus on what looks good right now and what feels good right now, and a lot of times we donâ€™t think of others enough.â€
The first radio single from the release,Â â€œHallelujah Band,â€Â which landed in the Top 5 on the national radio chart, highlights how these five unique voices and personalities have come together to create something special.Â Written by Becca Mizell and Sam Mizell, the up-tempo number was featured via social media as a performance video that has garnered over one million views on Facebook.Â The groupâ€™s follow-up video of â€œChain Breakerâ€ has received nearly three million Facebook views.
Both of these performance videos are found on the newÂ We Have This MomentÂ 90-minute DVD release, which includes behind-the-scenes interviews with the group members and Gloria Gaither, who penned new words to a classic melody for the recording with the songÂ â€œHymn of Praise.â€
We Have This MomentÂ will be part of a TV special airing on over 15 networks that carry theÂ â€œGaither Gospel Hourâ€Â weekly includingÂ RFD-TV, DIRECTV, TBN, The Heartland Network, Dish TV, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT, TLNÂ andÂ GaitherTV.Â It will air in Canada onÂ Vision TV, The Miracle Channel, Grace TVÂ andÂ CTS.Â The recording is featured onwww.gaither.com,Â in the Gaither Catalog Collection, via the companyâ€™s social media propertiesÂ and on theÂ Gaither YouTube channel, which garners over 22 million views monthly.
