Receiving widespread praise from critics since its digital release, the accolades for Whole Heart continue to pour in, with CCM magazine describing the collection as “fresh congregational songs centered on the gospel and God’s character.” ChurchM.ag says this about Passion’s latest, “Having heard…Whole Heart, I definitely see why so many attend (Passion Conference). Their music is fantastic. Their energy is high. His presence is palpable.” Worship Musician adds on with thoughts on “Hallelujah Our God Reigns,” a favorite off of the album, calling its chorus “infectious and could definitely find its place in your regular Sunday set-list.”

From its start in 1995, Passion has been rooted in the confession of Isaiah 26:8 – “Yes Lord, walking in the way of Your truth we wait eagerly for You, for Your name and Your renown are the desire of our hearts” - existing to glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation. Passion has encountered millions of students and 18-25 year olds, young people whose lives have been transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. One of the most impactful and stirring aspects of the movement has been the sea of voices uniting together to lift up the name of Jesus, currently helmed by Kristian Stanfill, Brett Younker and Melodie Malone. The band has seen worship leaders such as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Crowder, Christy Nockels and more unite over the years, writing, recording and leading arenas in worship. Transcending the conferences, songs from Passion have become some of the most recognizable and unforgettable worship anthems of this generation. With 1.9 million units sold and a multitude of chart-topping singles such as “How Great Is Our God,” “God Of This City,” “One Thing Remains,” “Even So Come” and “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord),” listeners across the world continue to be impacted by the music of Passion. Delivering new projects annually, songs from records such as Here For You, White Flag, Let The Future Begin, Take It All, Even So Come, Salvation’s Tide Is Rising and Worthy Of Your Name have become timeless staples in the Church. The four-time Dove Award winners have had nine albums debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Albums Chart with three hitting the Top 5 on the Billboard 200. Through it all, Jesus continues to remain at the center. Passion is more than music. More than events. Passion is a generation living for His name. Their latest, Whole Heart, is available now.
