Nashville, TN (February 1, 2019)
Inspired by his live worship album Surrounded, which is nominated for a GRAMMY as Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, Michael W. Smith hosted “A Night to Pray, Worship and Be Awakened” at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN last August. The energy, passion and unity of the event was captured as it happened on AWAKEN: The Surrounded Experience releasing Feb. 22 from Rocketown Records and The Fuel Music. The album also features special guest CeCe Winans and the voices of 14,000 that attended the event.

“The night was beautiful. I remember thinking, ‘This is what Heaven will look like.’ A picture of unity, with all colors, ethnicities, denominations and ages joined together in worship,” shares Smith in a Parade exclusive. “I’m still hearing reports of lives changed, commitments deepened and people empowered in a new way. We may each have different stories, skin and songs, but we all share His same Spirit.”
