EDITORS’ NOTES

GRAMMY®–nominated singer/songwriter Kari Jobe achieves the difficult feat of building a live worship experience around a set of all-new material on Majestic. The album takes its title from the historic Dallas theater where it was recorded—but it refers equally well to the sense of glory its music embodies. Jobe delivers performances that are both intimate and emotionally powerful, using the delicacy of her vocals to convey deep spiritual rapture rather than mere surface beauty. From the arena-sized rock dynamics of “Breathe on Us” and “Keeper of My Heart” to the contemplative pop strains of “Look Upon the Lord” and “I Am Not Alone,” she sings with vulnerability and conviction. The album’s songs—cowritten by Jobe with such noted Christian tunesmiths as Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, and Paul Baloche—draw the crowd into a shared act of praise that’s sustained through the final notes of the closing track, “Let the Heavens Open.” “Forever” stands out for its vivid portrayal of Christ’s passion and resurrection that builds into a ringing cry of faith. Fellow worship pastor Cody Carnes blends voices with Jobe on another key track, the aching “Holy Spirit.”

About Kari Jobe

Dallas-based international worship leader and CCM songwriter Kari Jobe ministered around the world for over a decade with various worship groups before settling down as the worship pastor at Southlake, Texas' Gateway Church in 2006. Jobe released her debut, a set of inspirational songs co-written with Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Paul Baloche, Klaus Kuehn, and Mia Fieldes, on Columbia's Integrity imprint in February 2009. The album was an immediate success, reaching number three on the Christian Albums chart and charting on Billboard's Top 200 as well as netting her a pair of Dove Awards. Her similarly inspirational-inclined sophomore effort, Where I Find You, arrived in 2012 on Universal's Sparrow Records imprint, this time topping the Christian chart and earning Jobe a Grammy nomination. A concert album called Majestic arrived in 2014 and featured new material recorded live at Dallas' historic Majestic Theatre. A year later she issued Majestic Revisited, which featured alternate studio versions of many of the songs from Majestic. In 2017 Jobe issued her third studio album, Garden, which saw her working with producer Jeremy Edwardson (Jesus Culture, Hillsong United, Jon Foreman) and delivering a hopeful set conceived during a time of personal loss. ~ James Christopher Monger
