The Hope album is showcasing some of the best of Australian talent around a brilliant theme of hope. The concept of the album is that each artist performs a song/songs that bring them hope.
Details of the album and opportunity to buy the Hope album are on the websitewww.hopeinthislife.com.
Produced by musical director for the stars, Chong Lim, the album represents a partnership between ABC Music, Universal Music Australia and World VisionAustralia.
With guest appearances from a who’s-who of Australian and international celebrities, Hope is an album like no other, its theme of spiritual and psychological rejuvenation through the joy of music offering a fresh view of timeless, uplifting classic songs.
In a coup for ABC Music, the current ‘leading lady’ of Christian music, Darlene Zschech, has recorded the appropriately-titled track My Hope especially for the album, while Olivia Newton John performs the inspiring Isn’t It Amazing. Chart-topping young stars Mark Vincent and Stan Walker are also featured, alongside a cappella vocal legends The Idea of North. Also starring: Anna Maria La Spina, Annalisa Kerrigan and Andrew Naylor. The one-hit-after-another formula is held together by inspiring reflections on Hope by ‘the voice of Australia’s conscience’, the Rev. Tim Costello.
The album is co-produced by Andrew Hagger, a prominent Melbourne businessman, who had the original dream for the project.
Breakfasts of Hope have already been held in Sydney and Melbourne to packed houses and there is one in Adelaide on April 30 - featuring Tim Costello from World Vision and live performances from two artists from the album.
There will be a number of corporates represented at the breakfast and encouragement is made to book for a table of 10.
"Hope is the word written on the brow of every man, woman and child. It’s the promise of a better future, the antidote of despair. Grab hold of hope. Celebrate hope. Lean into it. Hold it close. Lift your spirits and be transformed. For our sake, God has so wonderfully created faith, love and hope.”
Rev. Tim Costello
