Earlier this year (Aug 21), Fair Trade Services artist and songwriter Hope Darst released her debut album Peace Be Still, which has already hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top 40 US Christian & Gospel Albums Chart. Today (Nov 23), Darst premiered the official live performance video (extended version) for “Peace Be Still,” which can be viewed below.
“I’m blown away thinking about this right now,” said Hope. “I dreamed of being an artist for the first 25 years of my life and then laid that dream aside to pursue what God had called me to do—raise a family and serve the local church. I never imagined that so many years later, God would lead me back to my first dream of writing and releasing music as an artist.”
Peace Be Still was produced by Jonathan Smith (Zach Williams, Phil Wickham, Passion) and Max Corwin. Featuring twelve songs all co-written by Hope, the project has already been touted as one of the top worship albums of the year by NewReleaseToday.com, calling the album “memorable, personal, and worshipful,” as well as “poignant songs of adoration.” Click here to listen/purchase Peace Be Still.
