NASHVILLE, Tenn.â€”Platinum-selling, GRAMMYÂ®-nominated Point of Grace returnÂ April 3 with a landmark new collection, Beautiful Name. The iconic trioâ€™s second LifeWay Worship set and first full-length recording of hymns and worship songs, the project showcases Point of Graceâ€™s signature harmonies atop 10 fresh arrangements of beloved favorites, old and new.Â
Produced and arranged by Kent Hooper and Phillip Keveren, Beautiful Name features cherished hymns Â â€œAll Creatures of Our God and King,â€ â€œHoly, Holy, Holyâ€ and â€œBlessed Assurance,â€ among others, alongsideÂ such worship classics as the Twila Paris-penned â€œHow Beautifulâ€; Hillsong Worshipâ€™s anthemic â€œCornerstoneâ€; and renowned modern hymn â€œIn Christ Alone (My Hope Is Found),â€ by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend.Â
â€œWe have always known at some point in our career we would record a hymns and worship project,â€ said Point of Graceâ€™s Shelley Breen. â€œAfter being together for 25 years, this seemed like the perfect time. So much of our ministry is based on the foundation we received growing up in the Church and singing these hymns that are so theologically rich and full of verity.â€
â€œThese days, especially, we believe every single song we record and release needs to be heavily anchored in Truth,â€ Breen adds. â€œOur hope is that the words of this project will remind people of the absolute trustworthiness and freedom we can find in a life with Christ.”
“Because of the awesome response to Sing NoÃ«l, our Christmas project with Point of Grace last year, we couldn’t wait to get these great artists back in the studio,â€ said Mike Harland, director of LifeWay Worship. â€œTheir new album, Beautiful Name, is full ofÂ familiar songs with a fresh and exciting sound only Point of Grace could deliver. Denise, Leigh and Shelley have created an extraordinary worship collection that truly expresses just how beautiful His Name is!â€
