Capturing the mission, heart and worldwide movement of Planetshakers Church, one of Australia’s fastest growing church’s in history, Planetshakers Band released #LETSGO globally through Integrity Music Sept. 11.
Born through the movement’s passion to reach and impact people around the world, the new recording immediately soared to the top of the overall charts in several countries during its first week at retail. The album not only became the most downloaded iTunes album across all genres of music for a period of time in Singapore, but also was simultaneously the second bestseller on the charts in Malaysia. The album also hit No. 1 in Australia and South Africa, and No. 5 in the US, on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts.
Live tonight, from Daystar Television’s Dallas, TX studios beginning at 8:30 pm ET, Planetshakers members will share new music from #LETSGO along with their “Let’s Go” stories during Planetshakers LIVE!. Presented by Planetshakers, Daystar Television Network, Integrity Music and Church of God World Missions, and sponsored by Gateway Church, Life Outreach International, The Assembly West Monroe, John Hagee Ministries, Potters House of Denver and more, this 90-minute special reaching into 700 million homes will be hosted by Brian Carn and Lakewood Church’s John Gray, and feature Grammy Award winning special guest, Tasha Cobbs.
In addition to the broadcast, the event is being streamed live at Daystar.com/Live and will be simulcast as a free “Watch Party” at Samaritan’s Place, an orphanage in Manila, Philippines. The children living there will not only have the opportunity to witness the event live, but also to participate via Skype. Planetshakers is further teaming with Daystar and Integrity Music to give away #LETSGO, and is teaming with Biblica and HarperCollins Christian Publishing to give away NIV Bibles, to the children and others throughout the Philippines through the Church of God ministry network.
“The mission behind #LETSGO is to reach and impact people around the world, seeing them transformed by the power of God and the love of God’s people,” Planetshakers collectively share. “The fact that we are able to live out this mission through our partnership with Samaritan’s Place and the gift of free Bibles via Biblica and Harper Collins Christian Publishing is beyond incredible – it’s proof that God is behind Planetshakers LIVE!. We are so humbled to see all the different people that are partnering with us for this broadcast and hope together we can rally the Church to even further impact a world in need of hope.”
