Recorded during the International House of Prayer of Kansas City’s annual Onething young adult conference last December, Onething Live: All Cry Glory is the 11th live Onething album to date. The album captures the energetic atmosphere and vibrant worship of the conference, while sharing a spirit of unity found amongst the worshipers in attendance.
This year’s album includes an emphasis on spontaneous choruses and songs that the worship teams formed in the moment. It helps to recreate the atmosphere of the vibrant worship at the conference. You can revisit the same powerful worship moments time and time again.
This phenomena, present on other Onething albums but given special emphasis this year, is part of what connects so powerfully with listeners, whether or not they have attended a Onething conference.
