Southwestern Assemblies of God University worship song featured in Worship Leader Song DISCoveryWaxahachie, TX January 17, 2012Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) original worship song “Shine” from the “In All The Earth” album will be featured on Worship Leader Media’s Song DISCovery.

Every two months, Worship Leader Magazine produces a special publication that includes a CD comprised of a special selection of songs chosen from thousands of submissions. SAGU’s chapel worship director Meredith Jones submitted the recently released “In All The Earth” album, a live recording of Late Night Worship in March 2011. All the tracks on the album are original songs written by students.

“Shine” was written and performed by SAGU student Binil Chacko. “Shine” will be included on the compilation album with 12-14 other tracks, which will be available to subscribers of Worship Leader Magazine throughout the nation. The Song DISCovery album will provide artist information, the original album covers and song chord sheets.

“The album will be on a new platform,” says Binil Chacko. “It gets to travel beyond word of mouth and will be accessible on a greater level.”

The “In All The Earth” CD was the first live recording in ten years. “It is my dream that SAGU would put out a worship recording every year, and I think this is the first step,” says Jones. “It is exciting that our first project is receiving this kind of recognition.”

“I’m so excited for our students,” says Jones. “Who knows what doors this will open up for SAGU and the students as songwriters and artists.”
