Nashville, TN (September 21, 2018)
Jericho, the new project from prolific artist and songwriter Aaron Boyd, released September 21 to all outlets. Boyd is best known for the writing the popular worship anthem, “God Of This City,” made popular by Chris Tomlin.
The title track, “Jericho,” features a special appearance by Newsboys member, Michael Tait.
There’s a special element to this project as well – half of the proceeds will benefit the work of World Orphans, a non-profit that seeks to provide wholistic care to vulnerable families through the local church.
“I am so excited about the release of this project,” says Aaron. “I’ve partnered with World Orphans for the last few years and seeing the incredible work they are doing across the globe. I love these guys to bits and believe wholeheartedly in what they are doing to protect vulnerable children.”
A mission trip to Belfast over 10 years ago set the trajectory of Boyd’s ministry and life. On that trip, “God Of This City” was written in the most obscure venue. Since that first experience, Boyd has used every platform possible to raise awareness and finances around the issues that he witnessed on his many mission trips since.
Aaron shares, “I want to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and bring injustice from the darkness into the light.”
Jericho was unveiled earlier this week during a special VIP ‘sneak peek’ held in Franklin, TN where a room full of industry leaders were treated to a listening party and a special performance by Aaron.
