Miraculous Healing Inspires Title Track of New Album Dance Again By LIFE Worship UK

Recorded Live in UK, Dance Again Available Globally May 26
Integrity Music announces the May 26 global release of Dance Again, a 13-track album featuring new songs from the UK’s LIFE Church, including the title track, which was inspired by a miraculous physical healing. Recorded live by LIFE Worship, the music ministry of LIFE Church (formerly Abundant Life) in Bradford, England, Dance Again is an album filled with new songs from a congregation pressing deeper into God’s promises.
Dance Again features original songs written by members of the church along with a cover of  “One Thing Remains” by Brian Johnson/Bethel Music.  The album also features “We Believe” co-written by LIFE Worship’s Matt Hooper and popularized by the Newsboys. But it is the story behind the title track that has people talking.
It all began with church member Amanda Varty who had battled “ME” (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) for nine years. The debilitating disease left Amanda bedridden much of the time. There were days when she couldn’t walk, and in time, Amanda lost her job and was on the verge of losing her home. 
Desperate beyond words, Amanda and her husband went to church hoping for a miracle. On that particular day, Amanda recalls that she felt stronger and could sit upright and even raise her hands during worship, hands that had barely the strength to raise a fork to her mouth. Yet when she left the church, the weakness returned.
For eight months, the situation remained the same with Amanda feeling weak at home but better at church. Then, one day as Amanda received prayer at church, she stood up, walking away from her wheelchair. And that’s when she did the one thing that she had dreamed of being able to do during all those years of suffering. She danced again before God. 
Her testimony had a profound effect on the church, inspiring worship leader and associate pastor Matt Hooper to pen the song “Dance Again.” 
Praise Him when your heart is breaking / When your strength is almost gone / Sing out your song and
Praise Him in the fire and fury / In the dark night of your soul
Your tears will dry / Your heart will mend / Your scars will heal / And you will dance again…
“So many of us live between the promise that God gave us and the realization of that promise,” says Matt Hooper. “There’s a big gap sometimes for us to live in. But what we do in that gap… our reasonable response ought to be praise. He never changes, He’s always faithful. And we have to approach the sovereign God with that mindset. When your heart is breaking, praise Him.”
To hear more about Amanda’s healing and the inspiration behind the song “Dance Again,” view “Amanda’s Story” and to watch the live performance of the song, go to “Dance Again”.
Dance Again will be available through all major digital service providers beginning May 26 with a “Deluxe” version of the album, including bonus videos, available exclusively through iTunes.

If You’re An Aspiring Music Artist Or Band, Or A Writer Hoping For A Book Deal, Or A Creative Artist Such As A Filmmaker, Screenwriter Or Entrepreneur Then I’d Like To Tell You About My New Book Called The Success Secrets Of A Legend, How Bob Marley Went From Struggling Jamaican Musician To International Superstar

Attention: Writers, Musicians, Bands, Filmmakers, Screenwriters, Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners.



I just released my new book for creative artists of all kinds who are looking to either launch their career or take it to the next level.  Making a living, and finding ultimate success as a creative artist can be very challenging, and the truth is many creative artists never reach a place where they are happy with their income and level of success.  If that is you, then I’d love to tell you about my new book called The Success Secrets of A Legend: How Bob Marley Went From Struggling Jamaican Musician To International Superstar.


You can download a free preview of the book (the first 3 chapters on amazon, or noisetrade or smashwords).  The book costs only $0.99 on smashwords and iBooks and Barnes and Noble, and $2.99 on Amazon Kindle.


Below Is A Description of The Book:


Celebrated and revered around the world as one of the greatest musical artists to ever grace the stage, Bob Marley has given the world some of the most-loved songs, including “No Woman, No Cry,” “I Shot The Sherriff” and “Could You Be Loved,” among countless others. Rising from the humble origins of Trenchtown in Kingston, Jamaica, Bob Marley rose to the very pinnacle of music royalty with his status as icon and legend only growing each year since his passing. But how did this skinny kid from the ghetto slum of Trenchtown rise to the highest heights of pop music? By all accounts, Bob Marley’s success was as impressive as it was improbable. Coming from a country not previously known for its musical exports, as well performing a new musical genre unfamiliar to most of the world, Bob Marley invaded the public consciousness with a new sound that was ultimately embraced by people as far away as Canada, Germany and Japan.

As the title promises, in this new self help book, personal success author Hervict Jacobs looks at the success secrets of Bob Marley, and traces how he went from the slums of Kingston to becoming the legend that he is today by examining the insights that helped him rise from nothing having a personal net worth of $30 million at the end of his life.

This book is for creative artists of all kinds: writers, musicians, filmmakers, and screenwriters as well entrepreneurs and small business owners. Whatever your creative passion, THE SUCCESS SECRETS OF A LEGEND will show you the techniques and strategies that Bob Marley used to achieve his dream of musical success, and how you can use these same insights to take your career and business to the next level.

Some of the topics covered include, starting where you are no matter how bleak the circumstances may seem, the importance of brand to success and how Bob Marley built his brand through years of small gigs. It will also examine how Bob Marley got a London-based record label to partner with him and how you can get investors to partner with you.

What makes the story of Bob Marley’s success so uniquely compelling is the very lows of abject poverty from which he rose. Moving from rural St. Anne with his mother to Trenchtown, with no advantage or promise of future success, Bob Marley steadfastly worked his way up from nothing. Bob Marley’s life story, while it is a fascinating rags to riches story, is more than just the gripping saga of a boy with a dream who overcame the odds, it’s a blueprint for anyone who longs to follow their dreams.
