Vocal trio Point of Grace to release their first-ever Hymns recording, Beautiful Name, on April 3. The new album is the platinum-selling and Grammy Award-nominated group's second album with LifeWay Worship and their first full-length recording of hymns and worship songs.
Beautiful Name showcases Point of Grace's signature harmonies in 10 fresh arrangements of beloved favorites, old and new. Speaking about how the album came about, one of the group's vocalists, Shelley Breen, explains:
"We have always known at some point in our career we would record a hymns and worship project. After being together for 25 years, this seemed like the perfect time. So much of our ministry is based on the foundation we received growing up in the Church and singing these hymns that are so theologically rich and full of verity."
"These days, especially, we believe every single song we record and release needs to be heavily anchored in Truth," Breen adds. "Our hope is that the words of this project will remind people of the absolute trustworthiness and freedom we can find in a life with Christ."
LifeWay Worship director Mike Harland adds that because of the positive response Point of Grace received for last year's Christmas album Sing Noël, they wanted the group to record more great music as soon as possible. Harland says the new album is full of familiar songs, with a fresh and exciting sound only Point of Grace could deliver, praising singers Denise, Leigh, and Shelley for creating an extraordinary worship collection that expresses how beautiful the name of the Lord truly is.
In post on their Facebook page, Point of Grace announced that they will hold a release party for Beautiful Name on April 3 at 6 p.m. at the brand new LifeWay Christian Store in Downtown Nashville, Tenn., inviting all fans to stop by and celebrate with the singers.
