Six-time Grammy-winning singer Israel Houghton returns to perform his new single, “Broken People” ft. DOE Jones. His new album, “Project LA: Alive in Los Angeles,” is available everywhere music is sold.
Israel weighed in on the record:
I feel strongly about this moment in Project LA: Alive in Los Angeles.
I feel like the entire project hinges on this moment. People all over the world because of self-righteous religion have been led to believe over the last few decades that it is possible to have God turn His back on us like humans do. I’ve come to overwhelmingly believe that He loves with an everlasting unconditional love. And to further punctuate the point CHOOSES to use flawed and wounded people to carry out His purpose for them and others. This moment for me is the reason why we gathered together as NewBreed to globally help others worship God and sense His life changing presence.
I’m wondering if you sense the same.
