PASSION 2013 Debut Highest Ever on Billboard 200 by The M Collective on 2013-03-20 14:50:47
Nashville, Tenn. (March 20, 2013) - Passion: Let the Future Begin has indeed begun brightly, with a No. 1 debut atop Christian SoundScan, as well No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, the highest Billboard entry ever for a Passion recording. Garnering sales in excess of 47,000 units, this also marks sixstepsrecords' second album this year to debut in the top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, following GRAMMY® winner Chris Tomlin’s No. 1 entry with Burning Lights this past January.
Passion: Let the Future Begin is named after the anthemic lyrical shout from Tomlin’s energetic track “God’s Great Dance Floor.” The first single off the album, Kristian Stanfill's "The Lord Our God," just went to radio, and was immediately added by KLOVE, who is also premiering the music video for the track at KLOVE.com, as well as offering a free download of another song from the project, “Once and For All,” featuring Chris Tomlin. Amongst its 14 tracks, also featured on Passion: Let the Future Begin is a live version of Tomlin’s hit, “Whom Shall I Fear [God of Angel Armies],” which currently holds the No. 1 spot on the National Christian Audience, AC Monitored, and AC Indicator charts.
Passion 2013 was a four-day gathering in January of this year, attended by a generation of 18-25 year olds from around the world and led by renowned pastors and teachers Louie Giglio, John Piper, Beth Moore, Lecrae, Francis Chan and others, as well as worship by Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill, Kari Jobe and Brett Younker. The conference was profiled in the national spotlight as students representing 52 countries and over 2,000 universities gave more than $3 million to help fund the freedom fight for the more than 27 million human slaves currently in captivity.
Accompanying the release of Passion: Let The Future Begin, Passion will embark on the “Passion: Let The Future Begin” Tour on April 3rd for a night of worship. Making stops in 16 cities, the tour will open up the opportunity for people to connect with the vision and heartbeat of Passion in their own city and join together in worship and prayer as a community seeking to make Jesus famous.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #195: What Is the Apocalypse?
The Long Range Weather Forecast published by The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017 accurately predicted a bitter winter last year, which dumped so much snow on the country that it inspired the Snowpocalypse festival in Milwaukee, Snowpocalypse survivor badges in Boise, and its own Twitter hashtag #snowmageddon. In keeping with our national compulsion to turn every personal victory or trial into a meme, we can now add -mageddon or -pocalypse to a catastrophe for an over-the-top event to post on our favorite social media outlet.
