'Multiply'-Mitch Wong & Steph Wong
Grammy award-winning songwriter Mitch Wong teamed up with his wife Steph Wong on this new track "Multiply." This new track reminds listeners of how much God can do with a person that is willing to say "yes". Doctrinally sound as it is pleasing to the ears; 'Multiply' showcases Mitch's fresh take on congregational worship as well as his unwavering commitment to the message of the gospel in song. On a piano-led, intricate soundscape, he testifies that Jesus, just as He did with the fish and the loaves, can multiply the faith that we place in His hands; for His glory; "thirtyfold, sixtyfold, a hundredfold". The song is the second single from his debut Integrity Music album. Stream 'Multiply' here.
