The successful solo artists joined forces in 2020 to record "There Is No Higher Name."
It’s been a long 16 months without live, in-person concerts, but now they’re coming back in a big way. Leading the charge is Catholic artist Sarah Kroger, who has teamed with Madison Street Worship’s Corey Voss. The pair released a collaboration during the world pandemic and now they’re taking the new act on the road with a fresh tour.
Kroger and Voss have both enjoyed incredible success as solo artists. Now, they’ve joined forces with the Christian musical community REVERE. This multi-artist project, a branch of Integrity Worship, draws all sorts of Christian artists together for new and exciting faith music. They wrote of their goal on their website:
“Our hope with REVERE is to gently help steer the church away from a production culture where the emphasis can, mistakenly, become a love for worship, to a reverential culture where the focus is, clearly and firmly, a love for Christ.”
Kroger and Voss paired up to produce “There Is No Higher Name,” in August, 2020. The tune starts slow but builds to a fantastic hymn. The song is marked by an impressive performance from a chorus that supports both vocalists. The song was released as part of REVERE’s album Holy Place.
In an interview with The Christian Beat, Kroger said of the album:
“Holy Place is a collection of songs we recorded in the middle of the pandemic in an empty church in Nashville,” Kroger explained. “They are a reminder that we have access to God anywhere, anytime. We can encounter Him when we’re alone in our rooms or gathered with a thousand people. The key is an open heart. I pray that these songs lead you to an encounter with the Father today.”
Voss supported Kroger’s sentiments, noting that it’s not about what you bring to the music, but what the music brings to you. He said:
“Sometimes we don’t have much to bring, and what don’t know what to say, but the hope is that when worshiping with these songs, you feel the burden of perfection lifted off your shoulders and a peace and comfort of the Spirit instead!”
Now, Kroger and Voss are preparing to tour for the album in Fall of 2021. The press release notes that the events will include stories from the artists to “move you and unite you in the Holy Place.” If time permits, the pair of worship leaders will discuss their craft as well as songwriting, character and the heart of worship, mental health, and more.
The tour will run on dates from October through November. Be sure to visit REVERE’s website for more details as the dates get set in stone.
