“All of us are just like church people, we love serving the local church,” Chris Brown of Elevation Worship told CP. “It’s why we got into it; it’s what we’ve given our lives to. Worship is what we do. Our church has just been writing songs for years, and that turned into recording albums, and that turned into this. It’s wild.”
