Avalon Worship brings their new sound and uplifting show to Hoover Auditorium Saturday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m.
The Grammy-nominated pop vocal group Avalon has long been admired for show-stopping mega-hits like “Testify to Love,” “Can’t Live a Day” and “Adonai.” While these iconic songs have shaped their legacy and remain close to their hearts, members of Avalon — Janna Long, Greg Long, Jody McBrayer and Dani Rocca-Herbert — are ready to explore a new musical direction that showcases their harmonies.
Now going by the name Avalon Worship, the group has recorded a self-titled worship album that reflects who they are as individuals as well as a collective.
This natural evolution has given the group a renewed energy for creating music that edifies and encourages. Their album includes both original recordings as well as worship covers of some of the biggest songs being sung in churches today.
Their original track “You Deserve It All” is a vocal-forward, heart-mover reminiscent of the group’s early hits. Adding their well-tuned vocal arrangements to worship hits like “Rattle,” “The Blessing” and “Graves into Gardens,” the songs become instantly singable.
With a balanced mix of known favorites and brand-new songs, this album cements the group’s purposeful step into the worship genre. Powerful and poignant, each track was handpicked to reflect a personal cry for God to draw near. More than a collection of songs, Avalon Worship is faith extending outward to be a blessing to all who hear it.
