Emerging Voices, the seventh new full-length recording from Jesus Culture Music, was released July 31 amidst acclaim. In its first week at retail, it has become the No. 1 best-selling album on the SoundScan “Praise & Worship” chart, spent most of the first week of August at No. 1 on the iTunes® “Christian & Gospel” chart and peaked at No. 11 on the overall iTunes “Top Albums” chart.
The highly anticipated new album follows last year’s critically acclaimed, No. 1- selling double-CD, Jesus Culture Awakening: Live From Chicago, and features four rising worship leaders: Derek Johnson, Mary Kat Ehrenzeller, Nate Ward and Justin Jarvis.
Known as one of the most influential youth movements around the world, Jesus Culture has ignited a generation with energetic, passionate and authentic worship music organically birthed through the momentum of a movement whose focus is to equip a generation to transform society by bringing people into an encounter with God’s love through worship and discipleship. Their albums capture the heart of this movement of young people who are passionate for God and seeking an encounter with His presence.

Derek Johnson, Mary Kat Ehrenzeller, Nate Ward and Justin Jarvis... “I’m excited to introduce four emerging voices to you that we know and love,” says Banning Liebscher, Jesus Culture director.
“We believe that there are emerging voices being raised up around the earth right now, and these voices are going to be used to see entire nations awakened to the love of Jesus; awakened to the gospel. This is really our heart for this album, Emerging Voices.
“Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala and Melissa Wise-How were worship leaders who were young and involved in our youth group and that the Lord began to anoint to see their voice stir the hearts of the Church and awaken people to Jesus,” continues Liebscher. “This album is just a handful of these emerging voices; ones that are close to us: Derek, Mary Kat, Nate and Justin. I’m convinced that God is going to take their lives, songs and anointing to impact an entire generation.”
