Soul Survivor Live 2010 – Light The Sky
It’s that time of the year, the release of the highly anticipated Soul Survivor live album. Soul Survivor is one of Europe’s largest youth events which is held over three weeks in the middle of the British summer, with over 30,000 festival goers attending for teaching and worship. Their annual live worship albums are always full of powerful and passionate worship.
Soul Survivor has equipped some of the most well known worship leaders of this generation. Over the many years the festival has been going it has seen Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Ben Cantelon, Lex Buckley and many others lead young people in worship. To my surprise I found out this year was the eighteenth annual Soul Survivor summer festival. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?
This year sees a new batch of talented worship leaders appear on this sixteen track album which is called Light The Sky. Beth Croft heads up the worship with 18 year old Tom Field and 16 year old Jamie Rodwell, who are charged with leading thousands of young people in worship. They lead with passion and energy which comes across on this album.
Once I saw the track-listing to this album I knew it was going to be a good album. Starting with Beth Croft singing Jesus Culture’s version of the Tim Hughes song Holding Nothing Back, which is a truly stunning version of the song, with its high energy guitars and driving drums this is a brilliant start to the album. We then seemingly flow into the Tomlin/Redman song Our God (Is Greater) a song that is having an impact on the worship of churches around the world, another strong and powerful song.
