Recorded live on June 20 in Houston, TX with more than 12,000 worshippers in attendance, artist, composer, author and worship leader Michael W. Smith recorded his third highly-anticipated worship album A New Hallelujah.
“Since my last world tour a few years ago, I’ve been looking forward to recording a live worship project that reflected something more global than I’ve ever done before; a collection of songs and voices to translate what I experienced that year. I had hoped for an evening of worship that reflected the corners of our nation, and the world; I think we captured that. My great friend Israel Houghton, the world renowned African Children’s Choir, an incredible young worship leader named Coalo Zamorano and a 250-voice choir elevated the songs to amazing moments of praise and worship. It was more than I could have hoped for,” shares Smith.
With several new songs that Michael wrote especially for this project, as well as familiar ones such as “Mighty to Save” and “I Surrender All,” A New Hallelujah offers a uniquely moving worship experience for both fans of his highly-successful Worship brand, as well as those who are just discovering his music for the first time.

Michael W. Smith - A New Hallelujah| Posted October 28, 2008
Being a live worship album, sometimes you just don't know what you're going to get. This one just hits the mark, a real bullseye!
I'm listening to this, and I felt like I wasn't just listening to good music, but I was in worship. I was moved, touched. This album will leave you motivated about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Hallelujah! Amen!

We are all given talents from God. Michael's singing ability definately came from God. Michael could sing "Old McDonald had a Farm" and it would sould fantastic, probably the best you had ever heard. Michael can sing any genre of music and it would sound good. Michael W. Smith is one of my favorite christian singing artists. With regards to A New Hallalujah, it is very good; good lyrics, good tempo, good music, lyrics that you can understand, but this is not my favorite Michael W. Smith album.

Wow Thank you NRT for making my ordinary Tuesday evening extra special! Ilove that you can feel like you are part of the worship with this amazing recording. If all goes as planned I'll be worshiping with him and Steven Curtis Chapman next Wednesday night and I hear he does play a few of these new songs on the United tour
