LOS ANGELES (May 30, 2012) Maranatha! Music announces the release of Power of the Cross from Worship Leader and Songwriter Shelly E. Johnson in partnership with LifeWay Worship. The four-track EP will be available August 14, 2012 distributed by EMI CMG Distribution. The lead single, "All Things Beautiful," is impacting AC and INSPO radio formats.

"Maranatha! Music is thrilled to work with Shelly and LifeWay Worship on her new EP, Power of the Cross," said Randy Alward, president of Maranatha! Music. "Shelly is a gifted songwriter and worship leader and has a unique ability to engage an audience of worshippers."

Johnson is an Atlanta-based songwriter with a great passion for leading worship. After graduating from Belmont University in Nashville and releasing her independent album, Mosaic of Grace, Johnson spent four years leading worship at churches across the southeast, serving regularly as a worship leader at Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, TN and developing her own ministry. She felt God's calling on her life to ministry as early as 14-years-old after the tragic death of her father.

"All Things Beautiful" proclaims the message that in an imperfect world scarred by pain and suffering, God makes all things beautiful according to His perfect plan. Johnson said about her new single, "Thanks be to God, it's not my place to understand His divine, mysterious and perfect plan. All I know is that He promises to work all things together for good for those who are faithful to Him."
