Passion's "Worthy of Your Name" album will be available on March 24, 2017.

MUSIC

Passion’ new live album, Worthy Of Your Name is now available on all digital platforms with physical albums becoming available on March 24, 2017.

"This album represents so much more than just new songs," Passion said. "It's the sound of hearts beating again. It's the sound of a generation coming alive in Jesus. 55,000 college students filled the GA Dome in January, but the after effect will last forever. It's finally here!"

More than 55,000 18-25 year olds from 90 countries and all 50 states packed Atlanta's Georgia Dome for the annual conference, bringing young adults from around the globe together to proclaim the name of Jesus. Spearheaded by Passion Founders Louie and Shelley Giglio, attendees heard from renowned speakers while joining in worship led by Passion (helmed by Kristian Stanfill, Brett Younker and Melodie Malone), Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and Hillsong UNITED.

This year, students made history by sponsoring more than 7,000 children through Compassion International, the most children to ever be sponsored at one event. Attendees fulfilled all remaining sponsorships in the countries of El Salvador, Rwanda, Tanzania and Indonesia as well as hundreds in Bolivia. Students have also continued to fight modern-day slavery through support of The END IT Movement along with gathering tens of thousands of new towels and socks for local Atlanta homeless shelters.
