Helpless Estate Release Album 'When We Rise’ Out 17th December 2013
HELPLESS ESTATE and First Presbyterian Church of Orlando are excited to announce the release of When We Rise, a 10-song exploration into classic hymns. Recorded over the course of one week at Emissary Studios, here in Orlando, When We Rise is composed of new arrangements of beloved church hymns and features Wil Brown, leader from the Genesis worship service and members of the Genesis team.
"We know this will appeal to our whole church family," says the Genesis Director Wil Brown. "We hope those who worship in Genesis will appreciate some of the new arrangements, and that those who worship in our Traditional service will see how we’ve sought to honor the musical integrity and truth inherent in hymnody."
Thanks to the underwriting of this album project by the generosity of the Heart of the City Foundation, the proceeds from album sales are able to fully benefit First Pres mission partners in Madagascar, at the Topaza Orphanage. 100% of the proceeds will go to the reconstruction of an essential building destroyed by a cyclone in July of 2012.
To give everyone in our church family the chance to participate, and allow God’s generosity to work through us – we’ve made When We Rise available at this time to anyone by donation. In addition, an anonymous donor has come forward and offered a $10,000 matching gift for the initial album sales.
The album is available on CD this Sunday morning, under the Angel Wing (between the Sanctuary and Allen Hall).
