(Nashville, Tenn.) March 27, 2009 – Following the impressive launch of A New Hallelujah (10/28/08), Michael W. Smith follows up with A New Hallelujah – The Live Worship DVD. The DVD project debuted at the top of the Nielsen Christian DVD SoundScan chart and the CD reclaimed its No. 1 position on the Nielsen Christian Albums chart.
The new DVD is the video companion to Smith's latest record, and third worship album, A New Hallelujah. Recorded live in Houston last summer before 12,000 people, a 250-voice choir and several special guests including the African Children's Choir and 2008 GRAMMY Award-winner, Israel Houghton, this DVD captures the powerful experience of the evening's worship in high-definition. The 90-minute long project features all 13 songs from A New Hallelujah, plus four new tracks and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
Smith's first worship album, simply titled Worship, released on September 11, 2001, and has sold more than a 1.5 million copies. Its follow up Worship Again released September 19, 2002, and is nearing the 800,000 mark.
