Congratulations to Julie and our other worship leaders featured on the Onething Live album, who have all been serving several times a week in our 24/7 prayer room for a number of years. Many of the songs on the album have been birthed in the prayer room during the course of night-and-day prayer, which has continued for almost fifteen years now.

Forerunner Music Celebrates First Dove Nominations

Onething Live and Julie Meyer Recognized

Kansas City, Mo. (August 14, 2014) — Forerunner Music celebrated two Dove-nominated projects as nominees for the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards were announced at a press conference in Nashville, Tenn., yesterday. This marks the label’s first time to be nominated for a Dove Award.

Onething Live: Sing Your Praises was nominated for Special Event Album of the Year. In addition, worship leader Julie Meyer garnered a nod for her holiday offering, Christmas, in the Christmas Album of the Year category.

“We’re delighted to see two albums from IHOPKC worship leaders recognized by the Gospel Music Association!” remarks Forerunner Music president Nick Syrett.

Onething Live: Sing Your Praises, the eighth project from the best-selling Onething Live series, became the highest charting album in the series’ history when it debuted at No. 8 on Soundscan’s Praise and Worship chart following its release in April. The album was recorded live at last year’s annual Onething conference, a premier event where more than 25,000 young adults gathered for extended times of worship, Bible teaching and ministry in downtown Kansas City. The project features 11 of the International House of Prayer’s (IHOPKC) talented worship artists, including Misty Edwards, Laura Hackett, Matt Gilman, Justin Rizzo, Jon Thurlow, Anna Blanc, Ryan Kondo, Jaye Thomas, Zac Dinsmore, Jonas Park and Wallace and Rachel Faagutu.

This past holiday season, Meyer gave fans the gift of her first seasonal effort. Christmas includes traditional classics alongside three originals, largely driven by acoustic melodies. The album also features an array of family and friends, including Meyer’s son who played on the project as well as co-produced it.

Winners for the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards will be announced Tuesday, October 7, 2014, at Allen Arena on the campus of Lipscomb University of Nashville. The award show will be broadcast on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) at a later date.
