Today is the day! Fair Trade Services artist and songwriter Hope Darst releases her debut album. Peace Be Stillwhich has already hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top 40 US Christian & Gospel Albums Chart.
 
“I’m blown away thinking about this right now,” said Hope. “I dreamed of being an artist for the first 25 years of my life and then laid that dream aside to pursue what God had called me to do—raise a family and serve the local church. I never imagined that so many years later, God would lead me back to my first dream of writing and releasing music as an artist." 
 
Peace Be Still was produced by Jonathan Smith (Zach Williams, Phil Wickham, Passion) and Max Corwin.  Click here to listen/purchase Peace Be Still.

Peace Be Still is also the name of the album's first single, which Darst wrote in 2017 with Mia Fieldes and Andrew Holt, fellow worship leaders and songwriters at her church.  Inspired by the trio's collective desire to overcome disappointment and fear, the song soon became an anthem of hope for their congregation, while churches around the globe also began to embrace its truth as their own.
 
"Peace Be Still" is currently No. 4 on Billboard's AC Indicator chart, and Top 10 on Billboard's National Christian Audience and AC Monitored charts, as well as Mediabase's Christian Audience and Christian AC charts. It's also playing on approximately 95% of Christian AC stations in the U.S.!
 
Additionally, the song has more than 45 million digital streams and a radio airplay audience of more than 121 million between her single as well as the extended live version from The Belonging Co's debut album, All The Earth. Hope has already begun sharing the message of Peace Be Still with the media, recently talking with outlets such as CBN News' Studio 5, New Release Today, Worship Leader, and more.
