Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and recording artist Michael Bethany releases his highly anticipated debut Gateway Music album, Overflow, today (June 30). Available now at digital and streaming outlets globally through https://gatewayworship.lnk.to/
Produced by Ryan Rich and Kyle Lee (Michael W. Smith, TobyMac, CeCe Winans), Overflow delivers a live worship experience featuring a multicultural sound of worship birthed out of Michael’s personal overflow of intimacy with God.
“In 2017, I was in my prayer closet and the Holy Spirit gave me a word about doing this new album and to call it Overflow,” shares Michael. “As overflow was eventually becoming the theme of my life, where out of intimacy everything would overflow, I made a commitment to stay in that place, making it the anchor of my life. Literally, almost every song on the new album came out of prayer, an intimate time with God.”
One of those songs and its companion video releasing today, “Fill the Room,” cries out for the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit; the reality of God to saturate lives in every moment and place of worship. The track radiates with a passionate, singable chorus and an extended worship flow that creates space for people to go deeper in God’s presence.
Like “Fill the Room,” “He Is Lord” is meant to usher people into the throne room of God’s amazing presence while the joyful testimony and lead single from Overflow, “Ask Me Why,” reflects on the faithfulness of God. Written in collaboration with award-winning songwriters Mitch Wong and Mia Fieldes, “Ask Me Why” uniquely blends the sound of both contemporary and Gospel music genres.
