What critics are saying about Whole Heart...
"I'm impressed by the consistent quality and fresh, worshipful songs that come from Passion. This album is no exception. Whole Heart is about proclaiming the 'reckless love' of God and crying out for His Presence throughout this incredible worship experience." - New Release Today
"Passion has come back with a bang. Energetic, original, quasi-familiar, and filled with the Spirit's presence, this album underscores all the requirements for a great worship album. A record not to be missed!" - Hallels
"The soaring choruses & melodies heard throughout Whole Heart capture the essence of modern worship as voices of the artists combine with the thousands who were in attendance of the Passion 2018 conference. The songs within the collection reflect an overall theme of being filled with the Holy Spirit and surrendering your heart to praising our Heavenly Father for His wondrous love and majesty as we live our life for Him." - Today's Christian Entertainment
"Passion has raised the bar with Whole Heart, creating an engaging album with encouraging tracks and inspiring, reflective moments. This year has brought together a fantastic team of artists and leaders who have poured their hearts into the event and the songs. Most of all, the album beautifully accomplishes what it sets out to do - to glorify Christ and celebrate His love. Whole Heart drives this theme, creating a moment to worship with 'whole hearts' the One who gives freely from His whole heart." - The Christian Beat

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 eight 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. Whole Heart is available now digitally and will release physically on Mar. 23.
