UPPERROOM is a collective of more than 100 musicians who create Christian pop, rock, and folk as part of the like-named church group based in Dallas, Texas.

∙ Christian-pop star Michael W. Smith featured his version of UPPERROOM worship leader Elyssa Smith’s “Surrounded (Fight My Battles)” on his 2018 album Surrounded.
∙ Their 2019 EP Moments: Color 003, consisting of highlights from the prayer room, rose to No. 2 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Albums chart.
