I don’t know about any of you, but I LOVE Planetshakers! I’ve heard a lot of their music, and I can even say without hesitation that my favorite song is Nothing is Impossible from their 2011 album of the same title. We’ve played a couple of their songs in our praise team at church too, and I love their energy! When I heard they were releasing a new album, I really wanted to learn more so I could share it with all of you!
Planetshakers’ new album, #LETSGO, is releasing September 11, 2015 from Integrity Music. The album will launch into 700+ million homes WORLDWIDE through Planetshakers LIVE! which is a Daystar Television event on September 21, 2015!
In partnership with Integrity Music and Daystar Television Network, Planetshakers is gearing up for a unique launch event unlike anything they have attempted before in celebration of their new album #LETSGO, which releases Sept. 11. At the heart of the new CD is a challenge, a dare to listeners to see what is possible when they boldly follow God. This message is being taken to the world with Planetshakers LIVE!, broadcasting internationally Monday, Sept. 21, at 8:30 pm ET on Daystar Television Network, which reaches into 108 million homes in the US, 10 million homes in Canada and 700 million homes worldwide – a potential viewing audience of over 2 billion people.
A 90-minute special featuring new music from #LETSGO and personal “Let’s Go” stories in front of a live, invitation-only audience in Dallas, TX, Planetshakers LIVE! will be hosted by Brian Carn and John Gray (from Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church), as well as feature special guest, Gospel recording artist Tasha Cobbs.
A truly global event, the broadcast will also be simulcast live to a free “Watch Party” held halfway around the world at the Church of God Dasmariñas in the Philippines, Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8:30 am PHT. In addition to this event, the Planetshakers Live! partners are teaming up to give away #LETSGO to the live audience in the Philippines: for every album purchased on the day of the event, one will be given to an attendee in the Philippines.
The “Watch Party” location was chosen after Planetshakers heard stories of concert attendees who made significant sacrifices just to be able to travel to see them in concert.
“It is inspiring, and simultaneously heartbreaking, to hear countless stories of people skipping meals so they can travel to one of our events,” shares Joth Hunt, Planetshakers worship leader, guitarist, and producer. “It’s hard to imagine someone doing that, but it just goes to show that their souls are more hungry than their bodies. That’s why we wanted to put on this special ‘watch party’ just for the people of the Philippines.”
“Here at Daystar we’re always dreaming big and looking for opportunities to pioneer new ground for the Gospel,” says Marcus D. Lamb, Founder and President of the Daystar Television Network. “That’s why we’re so excited to be partnering with Planetshakers for Planetshakers LIVE!, the likes of which has never been attempted on Christian television! We are especially looking forward to our live simulcast in the Philippines, a nation which is a part of the 10/40 window, where tens of thousands have yet to hear the Gospel.”
“Planetshakers’ desire is to help believers encounter God through praise and worship, and unbelievers through evangelism,” adds C. Ryan Dunham, President of Integrity Music. “Regularly filling stadiums and arenas around the world, their heart is not just in making great music, but to see people intimately experience God in such a profound way that they are never the same. Now believers in North America can share in that mission by helping spiritually needy people overseas encounter God through the music of Planetshakers, passing on the message of #LETSGO to others.”
