CCM Album Releases: ‘Beatitudes,’ Hannah Kerr

Beatitudes Album Project Released

Beatitudes, a new multi-artist album project featuring songs by Amy Grant, Hillsong UNITED, Matt MaherJohn Mark McMillan, All Sons & Daughters, Amanda Cook, The Brilliance, Anthony Skinner, Terrian Bass and Becky Harding, Michael W. Smith, Martin Smith, and Propaganda, was released April 21 from Stugiology Music.

The 20-track album is part of The Beatitudes Project, which also includes a book, Words From The Hill (An Invitation to the Unexpected), and a documentary, View From the Hill, which is currently in production. The project shines a light on connected stories of real people from all faiths and walks of life as viewed through the lens of musician, producer and author Stu Garrard.

Four songs from Beatitudes are available for immediate download with each preorder of the album from iTunes, including “Morning Light” featuring Amy Grant, “The View from Here” featuring Hillsong UNITED, “Oh Mercy” featuring Matt Maher with additional vocals by Audrey Assad, and “Heaven Is Around Us” featuring John Mark McMillan.

“The Beatitudes Project is meant to be a reset button in a world plagued with violence and division,” says Garrard, who also authored Words From the Hill. “These upside-down Jesus announcements on a hillside by the Sea of Galilee in Matthew 5 where Jews, Greeks, Romans and people of all ethnicities were gathered are a reminder that there is another way.”
