Spring Update

April 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

It’s been 2 months now since the crazy and amazing weekend that was Live 24. After the success of last year’s event, we had high expectations for the 2017 version. Last year we took a risk in trying to pull off a live-stream that many organisations with much bigger budgets and much larger teams were not attempting. We had no idea if it would work – but we prayerfully gave it a bash! In the end, thousands of people from all around the world tuned in, we spread the message and vision of Rechord Music further and wider than we had done before, and in the process we smashed our funding target. God moved! Would it happen that way again this year?

Yes. Yes it would. God moved as we praised Him solidly for 24 hours!

Andy: Again we had thousands of people tune in, the excitement was palpable, and it was obvious that God was moving in a special way through our worship of Him! People who weren’t yet believers were tuning in and meeting with God in special ways. New songs and new music were being sung to our Lord for the first time. We were being drawn into a glimpse of that never-ending throne room worship of our Lord!

Todd: With artists and viewers coming in from all over the world, it truly is a global event and it’s incredible to have the chance to be a part of it all. The vibe in the control room felt very relaxed, making it easy to slip into really engaging with the worship when I wasn’t running up and down the stairs to adjust the cameras. Some of my favourite moments took place in the middle of the night sets as well as the late afternoon as the natural light was beginning to fade away… such a great time!

Hannah: Five minutes before the end of Live 24 was one of the biggest adrenaline rushes of the whole 24 hours. On the Saturday afternoon we genuinely thought we wouldn’t meet our target and yet within the last two hours, with every refresh of the donation page, we believed a little bit more that there was a possibility it could happen. At 19:55pm we crossed the £5,000 line and I was shaking! It was such a privilege to tell the band that God had moved through the generosity of people watching and we had hit our target! Just WOW!

Live 24 has become a really special and unique time for us and we hope also for you.

So now what? Now we get back to our core task – making brand new worship music to glorify our God. Gus and I (Andy) are currently hard at work scheduling studio sessions with our artists to finish tracking for our new (and first ever!) album which we hope will be launching by Autumn. We’re also in the process of arranging filming for some new acoustic videos – so watch this space! Our activity will be ramping up behind the scenes and we’ll keep you updated along the way. We have at least 3 new artists that will be debuting on the new album and, honestly, the songs are sounding amazing. We can’t wait to share them with you!

We have more updates coming soon – but until then. Enjoy some of these memories of Live 24 2017 – let His Kingdom Come!
