Great Awakening

Worship is a personal thing. It’s an intimate act, drawing individuals into the arms of their Creator or flat on their face at His feet. They’re ruined by love. They’re wrecked by grace. They’re carried away and pushed through His gates.

A strongly bonded group of friends in North Carolina recognized the power of worship and strove to create a conducive atmosphere lathered in Christ’s presence. They soon found themselves standing before their youth group each week, leading a group of 40 students in song. Unexpectedly, that group grew to 200. God was moving and He was m ...read more

Worship is a personal thing. It’s an intimate act, drawing individuals into the arms of their Creator or flat on their face at His feet. They’re ruined by love. They’re wrecked by grace. They’re carried away and pushed through His gates.

A strongly bonded group of friends in North Carolina recognized the power of worship and strove to create a conducive atmosphere lathered in Christ’s presence. They soon found themselves standing before their youth group each week, leading a group of 40 students in song. Unexpectedly, that group grew to 200. God was moving and He was moving fast. As their friendships deepened and they grew together spiritually, the band decided to write their own worship songs. Not for a label or a concert, but simply to express their personal love for the Lord. Now called Great Awakening, the brothers in Christ continue to operate with the same humility, honesty and depth that brought them together. Their latest endeavor is a sophomore album, a record housing 10 tracks, that will be released as a free download through Come&Live!. Songs in Secret exists to cultivate face-to-face conversations with the Lord in a secluded and highly intimate environment. Great Awakening wrote each lyric from their hearts as they put to music the words they speak in secret. As a band, Zach Janicello (guitar/vocals), Cole Johnson (guitar/vocals), Ben Woods (bass) and Tanner Johnson (drums), have grown exponentially since they released Cities in 2009. In addition to developing musically, the guys have learned to recognize and embrace their ability to please God via worship. “We’re figuring out who we are as worshippers made uniquely in the image of God,” says Cole. “We’re just singing love songs to Jesus in the way that we actually talk to Him. We hope this leads people into a deeper love with Him..

The intensely poignant lyrics on Songs in Secret create the picture of a child baring his soul to his father. It’s worship music that dares to go beyond the surface. In fact, it ventures deep to a place where time flies by and tears flow freely. Everything is stripped away. Passion and sincerity emanate from each and every carefully placed word and note. Great Awakening writes in hopes to inspire others to delve into their own secret place. « hide
