Marking the culmination of her first five years at the International House of Prayer of Kansas City (IHOPKC), Lauren Alexandria’s new five-song EP, Victorious in Love, releases April 14th from Forerunner Music, IHOPKC’s official record label.
Lauren, who appeared on Forerunner Music’s 2016 release Onething Live: Love Makes Us Strong, has now drawn together a number of powerful songs birthed from prophetic choruses sung in IHOPKC’s Global Prayer Room and from her personal journey with God. Victorious in Love features powerful anthems that take the listener deep into her heart—and God’s.
“These are songs that have been written either from the prayer room, capturing different moments there, or from spending time with God and letting Him speak and sing melodies over me,” Lauren says.
Lauren has much to celebrate this April: along with this first EP, she has gotten married. She has added the personal touch to this release, with her new husband, Kendrian Dueck, singing on “Unknown Places.”
“We definitely plan to keep doing music together,” Lauren says.
Drawing inspiration from fellow Forerunner Music artist Misty Edwards, and the collaboration of Nashville producer Ben Shive (Laura Hackett Park, MercyMe, Rend Collective, Sara Groves, etc.), Victorious in Love is a God-saturated EP.
Lauren, a graduate of the Forerunner Music Academy at International House of Prayer University and a current worship leader in the Global Prayer Room, has given herself to a journey of seeking first the Lord. Her prayer is that all who listen to the project would feel likewise.
Oh, that we would live a life of worship
That He may find us shouting praises in the valleys,
And when He calls us away to those mountains,
It is the very heart of worship that picks up that cross,
Grabs His hand, and leans into His strength,
With thanksgiving on our lips, and joy in our hearts.
He is our great hope, and fear has no place—
Yes by yes, choice by choice, step by step—
With a song of His love in our hearts,
We will conquer every mountain,
We will be victorious.
