Casting Crowns’ New Live Project Features Hall’s Adoption Journey
Casting Crowns announces the release of its new live project, titled Until the Whole World Hears LIVE, available Aug. 31, which will offer millions of fans a front-row experience to the platinum-selling music, and discipleship, of 2010's Dove Award-winning Artist of the Year.
Recorded at Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, N.C. on April 24, with additional footage recorded at North Charleston Coliseum, North Charleston, S.C. and at Von Braun Center, Huntsville, Ala., the band's unforgettable 2009/2010 “Until the Whole World Hears” national concert tour is captured on this live 2-disc set, sharing the heart and story of such songs as “If We've Ever Needed You,” “Glorious Day” and the No. 1 hit single “Until the Whole World Hears.” The powerhouse tour saw over 350,000 fans in 82 cities.
The 54-minute LIVE concert DVD includes an additional 80 minutes of behind-the-scenes content and will launch the premiere of Casting Crowns' new “Until the Whole World Hears” music video. The music video features fan-submitted clips of audiences singing the anthemic song, literally all across the globe.
DVD highlights include “Mark Hall's Teaching Video Series” and the “Adopting Hope” story which details the Halls' heartwarming journey to bringing home their 33-month old daughter, Meeka Hope, from China. The five devotional-styled video lessons led by lead singer/songwriter, author and pastor Mark Hall, give viewers a deeper look at the Biblical studies and personal stories that have inspired the band's message-driven songs for the family.
Casting Crowns also reveals secrets of the road, with a peek into the creative day-time activities of the seven band members, in clips titled “Laser Tag,” and “Cornhole.” Remaining chapters provide new interviews with the band and “The Crew,” a look at the growing family in “Crowns' Kids,” an introduction to Brian Scoggin in “Our New Drummer” and the last word with “Inside Scoop: two Minutes with Mark's Parents.”
Appearing on the LIVE CD are eight live versions of the band's new songs: “Until the Whole World Hears,” “If We've Ever Needed You,” “Glorious Day,” “Mercy,” “To Know You,” “Holy One,” “Blessed Redeemer,” and “At Your Feet.”
