Hope of the Broken World is everything that you would expect from this multiple Dove Award winning group, plus there are a couple of songs that branch out into genres/formats that they are not normally associated with (Country, Southern Gospel).
To date, the group has sold 2.5 million albums.
The first Single "Hope Of The Broken World" has been released to radio.
Says Selah's Tood Smith says of the single, "As I watch the news tonight the Middle East is in chaos, natural disasters are destroying lives all over the world, and the economy looks very bleak. It's as if Matthew 24 is coming true before our very eyes, but John 16:33 says, 'In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.'"
"I wrote this song with Carl Cartee the first time I was privileged to meet him. He had come in with a gorgeous melody and the idea of writing a song about creation. As I sat there pondering the way God hovered over our earth inÂ the beginning, I couldn't help but think of our broken world with the knowledge that our God has not changed. The same God who hovered in the beginning and spoke our world into being, still overshadows us and births light out of darkness, peace out of chaos and life out of death," says Jennie Lee Riddle, songwriter of "Hope Of The Broken World" and "Revelation Song".
