"It’s Time is an expression of worship in beauty and strength with some of the purest female worship leaders of our time,” says Naomi Raine. “I’m humbled to be a part of this movement that hopefully continues to fuel this generation toward extravagant worship. Women are pillars in their communities and families and my prayer is that this would empower women to go after God with everything they have. My life was changed in an environment much like the one we will be in every night of the tour. Hoping people come out to be equipped and inspired."

Naomi Raine was named a Pandora 2023 Artist to Watch and is known as one of the most powerful voices in the gospel genre.
