13 Days To iTunes Happiness

That's right, we are hard at work mixing Passion 06 music today so it can be shipped off to the Apple folks tomorrow. We're working on two songs and a talk for the first Passion 06 bundle (translation: buy all) that will be available exclusively on the iTunes Music Store on January 24. I can't tell you what the two songs are just yet, but the pic gives a hint of at least one!

Stay tuned. More info coming. Thirteen days 'till iTunes. You know what to do!


  • The contained excitement is killing me, but I guess the eight albums I bought at Passion this year will just have to hold me over until then. =)

  • I work for a small advertising agency doing reporting to radio stations and media outlets(which is the extent of my small understanding in the advertising industry and its foreign language). I send weelkly reports to media outlets and radio stations, but try to include my care for people as I send the rigid reports. A guy from one of the stations responded to a question, and then asked me about my holidays. Well....my holidays were spent in Texas without family as I saved up and got ready for the drive to Nashville. So, I told him about asking God for really big things even when they seem out of reach (like me coming to volunteer for Passion). I filled him in on the iTunes info, so maybe he'll check out the message and music?! I was so excited to tell this stranger about the God who answers big requests. It was REALLY hard to go back to number crunching after sharing briefly about Passion. Poor guy didn't know what was about to hit him. Turn his heart toward you, Lord, if it isn't there already!!

  • Whoa! I guess its going to be a Crowder like song?
    Do you have to have an ipod to download itunes?? I am still a good ol' CD girl, haven't yet crossed over to an ipod.
    itunes better find out that they are gonna have a "party" and know that God is "Glorious" and that he is "Our joy"!

    By Blogger Kelli, at 1/11/2006 5:43 PM  

  • I hope the other song is... "PARTY!!!" I can't wait!!!

    By Blogger Carolyn Carter, at 1/11/2006 5:59 PM  

  • "you make everything glorious?" i hope so. crowder always seems to come up with some great songs.

    By Blogger Klint Bratcher, at 1/11/2006 6:25 PM  

  • I am so excited to hear all the songs!!
    I sure hope(Party)will be on the cd!
    Oh and I was wondering is there going to be a DVD of passion 06 too?
    That would be so awesome!!

    By Blogger FanofGOD, at 1/11/2006 6:29 PM  

  • YAY! I am so excited to hear a piece of what God did at Passion 06!!!

  • Cant wait! Anything to remind me of what God did last week is exciting right now...

  • OH yay! :) I am SO excited! Passion music is absolutely amazing, I just leave the window open at work and listen to the 4 songs over and over.

  • Hey,

    Here is something for everyone who is suffering from prayer withdrawal now that the 28 day prayer journey is over. It is the Global Prayer Chain going on during January at www.deomai.com. Please sign up and take some time to pray along with others from around the world.

  • All i can say is HURRY! :) all the songs from last week just keep playin over and over in my head... not nearly as "tuneful" but it works for now... Thank you for EVERYTHING! (p.s. YOU AND I or GLORIOUS, that would be a very nice surprise!)

    By Blogger Whitney, at 1/12/2006 1:21 AM  

  • oh im so thankful for music and the memories that come back listening to it... of God meeting us... i am stoked about getting it ASAP!
    Also God is still moving powerfully to drastically change lives... read my latest blog if you have a chance, i didn't want to put the whole story here...
    OH my goodness our God really does reign as strong here on the west coast, as I felt his presence and movement in Tennessee!!!!

    By Blogger Justine, at 1/12/2006 1:56 AM  

  • oh yea i CANT wait! hopefully one of the songs are you are my JOYY! and the other is GLORIOUSSSSS, OVER USSSS, HE SHALL REIGNNN, GLORRRR-IOUS!!
    i just love that song so much, and its always on my mind. But any song from passion is great. cant wait.

    By Blogger Branded By Fire, at 1/12/2006 3:53 AM  

  • Although I love the Party song, I would have to go with hoping it will be "Glorious". That is the most beautiful and powerful song. It has been running through my mind ever since I first heard it last week.

    By Blogger Donna Versace, at 1/12/2006 6:20 AM  

  • I am looking forward to Itunes.....
    However, I need prayer today. I have a court trial for criminal activity that has been done against me. Duet 10-18 Thank you for you faithfullness that you promise to "defend and bring justice to me the widow orphan" My prayer for the defendent that He will "throw off is old evil nature which is rotten throug and through and that there would be spiritual renewal in his thoughts and attitudes and become a new man which was created accordidng to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore but away his lying "Let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbors for we are members of one amother."
    Let bring GLORY TO YOUR NAME through these circumstances. Bring healing to your people and restore your church.Turn him from darkenss to light and from the power of satan to the power of God and that he will receive forgiveness for his sin and be santify by you in fiath." Act 26:18 "
    Let the scales fall from his eyes" Acts 9:18 Psalm 55 & Psalm 109.IN YOUR NAME I TRUST.... Glory and Praise to your Name Christ my Saviour!!! Jeannie

  • For Kelli,

    You don't need an ipod to download itunes. You can download the itunes program to your computer. Then itunes essentially becomes a media player and you can play the music on your computer OR if you have a cd burner, you can actually burn the songs to cd.

    By Blogger stephen, at 1/12/2006 8:45 AM  

  • THIS IS FOR GLORY! HIS GLORY! (so i guess it doesn't matter what songs you put on there, haha, i'm a dork). Gal 2:20

    By Blogger Keri Anne, at 1/12/2006 8:46 AM  

  • ok my guesses are "Party" and "Glorious"

    sweet whatever they are! we WILL be on itunes!!!

    By Blogger Stephanie, at 1/12/2006 8:51 AM  

  • it really is too bad that my ipod broke and I got too frustrated trying to convert all my itunes songs onto my creative zen and just deleted the entire program... I might just have to cut my losses and re-install to get the Passion bundle... I still have about $20 worth of downloads on my account. unfortunately, I think all 2000 of my songs will still be MIA though.

    my guesses: I don't really have a guess, but I HOPE and PRAY that "Party" is on there... if not, we will all just have to wait for the Passion '06 CD to come out.

    By Blogger whitney_k, at 1/12/2006 10:17 AM  

  • My guess is definately "You Are My Joy," because it looks like that's what the Crowder guys are performing in the picture... still can't get over just how awesome God is and the amount of work that He did on me while we were all together in Nashville

    By Anonymous THE BOB-O, at 1/12/2006 10:38 AM  

  • Stephen,
    Thanks for letting me know, My brother has a burner and I think he is aquainted with itunes so I will make him help me out. First though I gotta get into itunes...

    Everyone else, its been one week since Passion ended! Happily I am still daydreaming about it half the time!!

    By Blogger Kelli, at 1/12/2006 10:45 AM  

  • oh boy!! i can't wait to get through 13 days! :)

    By Blogger Laura, at 1/12/2006 11:36 AM  

  • Wow...what an experience...Passion '06 proved to be an even more stunning and uplifting encounter with God than the previous year. Everything was God ordained, from the songs that were played to the people in my family group with whom I still speak and have built great relationships with. My heart is with Passion. MY passion is to see the college aged students of this country rise up and do something great for the name of Jesus Christ. I have applied to an internship with Northpoint Community Church while I am getting my M-Div. May God bless you Louie....My heart is in the exact same place as yours...

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/12/2006 1:46 PM  

  • I think they're playing You Are My Joy in the picture. I think Crowder used a capo for his new Glorious song, which isn't featured in this pic

    By Anonymous LesDudis, at 1/12/2006 2:21 PM  

  • Yeah, Tomlin's "Glorious" definetely needs to be on the album/iTunes!! That one has been riveted to my brain since he first played it last week :)

    Also, if you haven't checked out Charlie's new album, IT ROCKS! They did a very good job, and most of the new songs (if not all) that his band played at Passion '06 are on there.

    So between that, the new Tomlin songs, and the live versions of DCB's stuff we should be rocking all the way to Atlanta next year! (Does anybody else still have Passion '05 in their CD changer??)

    Stay strong gang!

    how did you hear the songs on Charlie Halls new cd?I thought it was not released yet?Let me know

    By Blogger FanofGOD, at 1/12/2006 5:48 PM  

  • fanofgod, they specially pre-released Charlie Hall's new CD at Passion for us =) we got a great deal, 8 bucks!

    By Anonymous LesDudis, at 1/12/2006 5:57 PM  

  • I got the new Charlie Hall cd too for that wonderful price. It really is great!!! I have to be honest. Until Passion, I had never heard of Charlie Hall so I had no idea about what his music sounded like. I was blown away and once again another vessel of the Lord's for the impact of His kingdom. Wow.....another song on here mentioned that I forgot about, yet thought it was so powerful. "This is for glory! His glory!" I just loved that song. I'm surprised I even had a voice after that; although I did get sick when I got back and didn't have half a voice yesterday.


    I do not know if your court date was today or not. Your posting was early this morning and I know the timing on these posts are not accurate. Anyway, I am praying for you. Psalm 61:3...."For thou has been a refuge for me, a tower of strength against the enemy". And yes, by all means, pray for your enemy as well. It was always such a hard thing for me to do, but the more I started praying for them, the easier it became. God loves them just as much as he loves you and because of His mercy, He wants them to be led towards repentance so that they too may live eternally with Him.

    In Christ,

  • Can I push forth a request that Kristian Stanfill's "Jesus Paid It All" and "O, Praise the One Who Paid My Debt" be on the Passion cd? Those two songs were just amazing!! It'd be awesome to see it make it on the album.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/13/2006 3:38 PM  

  • Yes, iTunes! I can't wait for the songs and messages to come out! I am a soldier stationed in Iraq and wasn't able to come to Passion this year. I am looking forward to see how God was moving in and on the hearts of students through His word and through song.

    God is ALIVE and KICKING here in Iraq! His story is being spread and changing lives in the most amazing ways.

    Please continue to 1.) pray for the troops stationed overseas and 2.) pray that the renown of Jesus continues to turn the hearts of soldiers to Him for His glory!

    It is happening over here and I am blessed enough to get to see it first hand! For the glory of God!

  • I can't wait to get the songs from iTunes! I'm guessing one of the songs is either You Are My Joy or We Win! Either will be awesome. I hope both are on the CD. And Kristian's songs as well... I can't wait for the whole CD... it's going to be amazing to relive the experience.

  • Agreed. Kristian fits in the group with all the "boys." However, as Watermark is retiring, isn't it time for another GIRL to rise to the top? It's becoming quite a man's club, otherwise...

    "glorious" now.

  • In respons to the remark about watermark retiring... that really is a bummer, but oh my goodness what a blessing they have been! Christies voice is so powerful, idk how many of you went to the session where Beth Moore invited the girls to their conference, but i wish i could go badly! If only it wasn't so far from Cali!

    I don't think it's so much about rising to the top... but it's definitely encouraging and powerful when someone with her heart and VOICE comes along.
