Elevation Worship’s Latest Album Nothing Is Wasted Sells Almost 12,000 Copies In Its First Week

 

This week, Charlotte, N.C.-based worship team, Elevation Worship celebrates the street week release of its second full-length album with Essential Worship/Provident, Nothing Is Wasted, with the group’s first No. 1 chart debut, selling more than 11,780 total units across all physical and digital channels. The project enters at the No.1 position on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Chart and lands within the Top 50 of all albums in the nation on Billboard’s Top 200 Overall Chart.

Bryan Ward, Vice President of Marketing for Provident Label Group states, “We are excited to partner with Elevation Worship in bringing their songs to the world and equipping worship leaders with new songs for their local churches. We are already seeing the positive impact of releasing the album in two unique expressions with live worship and studio recordings, which gives the listener two different ways to experience the songs.” He adds, “It’s wonderful to see how Elevation Church and their worship team are growing exponentially in the Charlotte community but also to see their songs impact the church globally.”

Nothing Is Wasted is available in a deluxe edition, which features 25 tracks, and a standard edition with 13 tracks. The deluxe edition contains 12 tracks recorded as a live worship experience and the same 12 tracks also recorded in the studio with a more progressive expression. Both versions include a bonus track of the group’s upcoming radio single, “Give Me Faith.” Both albums hit No. 1 and No. 3 respectively on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Top Albums chart during street week. The deluxe edition also reached No. 5 on the iTunes overall Top Albums chart.

The current momentum of Nothing Is Wasted demonstrates a substantial upswing in the impact of Elevation Worship over the last 15 months, nearly doubling its growth in sales from previous album, (For The Honor) which debuted at No. 22 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Chart in Nov 2011. Comprised of a gifted team of songwriters, musicians and worship leaders, Elevation Worship is a passionately dedicated group, leading as a single worship team, before eight separate church congregations across the Charlotte Metro area, and in Toronto, Canada. “We are extremely excited that as more people experience the songs on this album, they are ultimately getting a glimpse of the amazing things God is doing in our church,” says Wade Joye, Worship Pastor Elevation Church.

The group, always highly focused on the local church and equipping worship leaders across the globe, spent street date conducting live online interviews, performing songs from the album and unveiling exclusive video clips from the live worship experience of Nothing Is Wasted.

Elevation Worship plans to support its chart-topping album through all Elevation Church campuses, with over 12,000 worshippers in attendance weekly, and scheduled conferences in 2013, including Thrive Conference, CMB Worship Night Experience and featured on the National Worship Leader Conference.

About Elevation Worship:
In the same spirit as Hillsong, Passion and Jesus Culture-modern worship grown from a single seed then catapulted onto a national stage-Elevation Worship is organic to its environment and yet unique to the digital age in which it was born. It is a passionately dedicated team of gifted songwriters, musicians and students of worship boldly leading, as a single worship team, before eight separate congregations across the Charlotte Metro area as well as internationally in Toronto, Canada.

Under the direction of Pastor Steven Furtick (also a worship leader and songwriter) this Charlotte, N.C. church was established by Furtick, and eight other families, with one massive vision: to reach people far from God. In just seven years, Elevation Church has become one of the fastest-growing churches in the U.S. with seven established campuses in the greater Charlotte area. The Elevation Church worship gathering is simultaneously broadcast across these multi-city locations via cutting edge technology allowing the church’s 12,000+ weekly worshippers to feel closely connected as one church praising with one voice.

To date, Elevation Worship has sold more than 30,000 units of its debut album with Essential Worship, For The Honor, in less than a year. Its worship anthem, “Give Me Faith,” is currently one of the fastest-growing church songs at No. 140 on CCLI, moving more than 160 spots within a year. Additionally, Elevation Worship released its second full length album, Nothing Is Wasted (Feb. 19, 2013), to a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Chart and broke into the Top 50 of Billboard’s Top 200 chart.

In fewer than six years, Elevation Church has grown to more than 10,000 people at six locations across the Charlotte area, making it the second fastest growing church in America. Pastor Steven is also becoming one of the most influential leaders, speakers and authors in the country.

From the beginning, Pastor Steven had a vision for Elevation Worship to write and record songs that reflected the church’s journey, experiences and needs. The fourth album from Elevation Worship, and its first national release, For The Honor features all original songs including the title track, “Give Me Faith”, “All Things New,” “Exalted One” and “The Church.” A complete track listing for the release follows:

Additionally, a digital deluxe version of the album will contain 3 bonus songs, 5 music videos, For The Honor documentary, chord charts for all songs and more.

As with recent movements including Hillsong, Passion and Jesus Culture, Elevation Worship seeks to bring new ideas to the worship arena, connecting with other worship leaders as well as churches to better serve God and His Church through worship.

Worship Pastor Wade Joye says, “We have seen God do the impossible in our church time and time again, and we consider it such an honor to give voice through these songs to the great things He has done. Our prayer is that all who hear this project will be inspired to believe that the Lord can do the same in their own lives and churches.”
