- Greater Things
“…My greatest passion is to lead people into a heightened awareness of the presence of God, and to see individuals experience the breakthrough God has for them through worship. I am so excited about this moment in time – to be releasing my first solo song, to be part of the Capitol CMG family – and to see what God does with all of it…” Recently signed to Capitol Christian Music Group, former Elevation Worship frontman Mack Brock, who served as music producer of the group also, for more than a decade; has stepped out on his own to record his debut single and venture out into the great unknown to launch a solo career. It isn’t known why lead singers from bands break out into solo careers- maybe there are disagreements, or God is calling each member to different areas; but one listen from Mack’s new single “Greater Things”, which released around a month ago, and you’ll be convinced that Jesus still has something fantastic and wonderful for Mack to accomplish in the world of music in the coming years, as he brings more and more into the Kingdom of God through the gifts He has given to him.
Reminding me of Elevation Worship in style, Mack delivers to us a slower-paced keys-led ballad, which slowly but surely builds and builds to turn into an epic anthemic electronic dance party- and he is definitely right at home vocally- this track is bursting with energy and celebratory joy! Ardently declaring that ‘…I will not fear for You are with me, I’ve seen this fight from the victory, no power of hell could stand against me…’, Mack eloquently highlights the fact that it is Jesus and only Jesus whom we can trust at all times, and trust to do greater things than we can ever imagine. One of my favourite worship songs of 2018, “Greater Things” is something that needs to be heard and experienced, by anyone who needs motivation and uplifting, or just anyone who wants to worship our Lord God the Almighty. Destined to be big on radio this year, I reckon the track will propel Mack to greater heights and get his name out there as a songwriter, worship leader and solo artist!
With Elevation Worship still going strong, and Mack Brock seemingly fitting right into the ‘solo artist set-up’, this could be a win-win situation for everyone, as “Greater Things” reminds us that there is something great happening soon that is waiting on the horizon for us. As Mack preps for his debut solo album to release sometime this year, I reckon this track is sure to be in one of my top ‘favourite tracks’ come the end of 2018. So, what are you guys waiting for? Listen to “Greater Things”, then listen some more! Let me tell you, you will be blown away!
