Curb | Word Entertainment’s Sidewalk Prophets releases I Believe It Now (Alternate Versions) today (7/30) – listen HERE. The five-track collection offers fans a variety of renditions of “I Believe It Now.” Included in the set is a live version recorded last summer during the group’s historic livestream at the Ryman Auditorium, now viewed over 375,000 times. Watch Sidewalk Prophets’ powerful performance of “I Believe It Now” live from the iconic Ryman stage HERE.
Produced by Jeff Pardo and co-written by Sidewalk Prophets front man Dave Frey, along with Ben McDonald, Jordan Sapp and Ellie Holcomb, “I Believe It Now” encapsulates the tension between faith and doubt. “The more I listen and perform ‘I Believe It Now,’ the more moved by it I am,” Frey reflects. “Faith is hard sometimes, but God is bigger than our doubts. He pursues us through our unbelief. The truth is our doubt proves that our faith is small, but the God we serve will never abandon the ones He loves. He’s going to show up in ways that we can’t even fathom.”
The album version of “I Believe It Now” was originally recorded for Sidewalk Prophets’ latest full-length project, The Things That Got Us Here, which topped the Billboard Christian/Gospel Albums chart upon release.
The Dove Award-winning band is currently sharing new music from The Things That Got Us Here, as well as previous hits, on their “Great Big Family Reunion Tour,” which kicked off in June and runs through the fall, with Sidewalk Prophets visiting fan-selected venues across the country. Their first in-person run of shows since COVID-19, the “Great Big Family Reunion Tour” follows a year of innovative livestream concerts for the band that generated more than 35K virtual audience members.
