At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh)
Spirit of the Living God / Spring Up O Well / I Surrender All
Editors’ Notes Stripping away the atmospheric production of his studio recordings, singer/songwriter Phil Wickham presents his wide-eyed praise tunes in stark acoustic form on Singalong 2. Recorded in March 2012 at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, Calif., the album follows up 2008’s Singalong as Wickham leads his audience through a song set filled with joy, awe, and reverence. Wickham has one of the most expressive voices in Christian music, and in this setting his passionate, almost angelic vocal qualities come through with palpable immediacy. The crowd's full participation adds to the spiritual luster of such familiar tunes as “You’re Beautiful,” “Sun & Moon,” and “Heaven Song.” The album reaches an especially rapturous peak with a starkly powerful rendition of “Cielo.” The newly composed “Wonderful” (boasting a soaring, room-shaking chorus) and a version of the classic hymn “I Surrender All” are also standouts. From first song to last, Wickham’s majestic lyrical imagery and unrestrained performing style turn Singalong 2 into a sustained act of worship.
