The new release from Amanda Cook has been long awaited with expectancy. Her voice is so anointed and is used by God in a powerful way that touches the soul and breaks chains with the truth. I love her song “Pieces,” and her first album BRAVE NEW WORLD.
From the official Bethel Music Website, here are some facts about Amanda and her influence on the Bethel community and in her music career thus far.
“Her latest album ‘House on a Hill’ released March 2019, marking Amanda’s second album with Bethel music, a sequel to her debut album, ‘Brave New World’ in 2015. Her song “Starlight” is featured on Bethel Music’s first album recorded live on tour Starlight (2017). “Pieces” (co-authored with Steffany Gretzinger) is featured on Have it All (2016). Amanda’s first solo project with Bethel Music, Brave New World, released in September 2015 and won a GMA Dove Award for “Inspirational Album of the Year.” She is featured on 5 Bethel Music compilation albums to date and has written numerous anthemic worship songs including “You Make Me Brave,” “Closer,” “I Will Exalt,” and “Shepherd.” She co-authored numerous songs with Steffany Gretzinger for Steffany’s solo project, The Undoing (2014).
Amanda Cook is also expected to go on tour with Hillsong United this year, which is an amazing collaboration! Hillsong United is one of my all time favorite worship bands and has influenced me since I was a teenager. I love that Hillsong and Bethel are uniting in music and praise.
