Bethel Music, the worship ministry of Redding, CA-based Bethel Church, world premieres the highly anticipatedWe Will Not Be Shaken film January 16 on its Facebook page for free. Over 15,000 Facebook fans have already indicated that they plan to view the film on the site. Recorded during an evening of worship on a mountaintop overlooking Shasta Lake north of Redding, the live album and DVD, which release internationally January 27 with Provident Music Distribution, present 11 new songs led by the Bethel Music Artist Collective, including Brian Johnson, Jenn Johnson, Hunter Thompson, Amanda Cook and Matt Stinton, as well as debut artists Kalley Heiligenthal, Hannah McClure, Paul McClure, Jonathan David Helser and Melissa Helser.

The We Will Not Be Shaken album (produced by Bobby Strand and Chris Greely) and film (directed by Nathan Grubbs and Luke Manwaring) chronicle the sound and breath-taking visuals from a multi-camera shoot that includes aerial views from a drone aircraft’s camera flying overhead at this unique gathering.
Meant to be a catalyst for other worship communities to take hold of what it means to “not be shaken,” We Will Not Be Shaken’s title track was birthed in a spontaneous moment of worship on a Sunday morning service at Bethel. The song hails a message of promise amidst adversity and the victory believers have in Jesus, while the recording powerfully captures the track’s energy and declaration, inviting listeners to join in praise.
Available for pre-order now, those that pre-buy We Will Not Be Shaken at iTunes will receive instant downloads of the title track featuring Brian Johnson and “Ever Be” featuring Kalley Heiligenthal. “Ever Be” quickly went to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Music Videos all genre chart, while the title track went to No. 1 on the Christian & Gospel iTunes Top Songs chart this week. The entire album also hit No. 2 and has been tracking all week in the Top 10 on the Christian & Gospel Top Albums chart.
