William McDowell, pastor, prolific worship leader, and recording artist, to launch epic worship event “7 Days of Withholding Nothing.” Kicking off Black Music Month and in conjunction with the digital release of WITHHOLDING NOTHING live concert film on iTunes, McDowell will make the extraordinary live worship experience available for unlimited viewing on WithholdingNothingFilm.com for 7 days starting Monday, June 9th until Monday, June 16th.
Visitors will be able to access their free and limitless views of the 2-hour worship experience by unlocking the film’s page through their Facebook and Twitter accounts or by providing an email address. WITHHOLDING NOTHING was recorded live at Faith Assembly Church in Orlando, FL and is a memorable film experience filled with the sights and sounds of dynamic worship moments.
Containing over 20 songs, the WITHHOLDING NOTHING concert film shows 2,000 people immersed in passionate, authentic and pure worship. Unlike anything seen before, McDowell offers this concert as a way to celebrate the poignancy and beauty of the evening. McDowell introduced a number of new worship anthems and songs of praise for today’s church. These include “Can’t Live Without You,” ”My Heart Sings” and the prophetic declaration, “Expecting.” The night also features guest appearances by Jason Nelson on Arise favorite, “I Surrender All,” Steve Crawford and Da’dra Greathouse (of Anointed) on “Standing,” and Daniel Johnson.
With the launch of the “7 Days of Withholding Nothing” campaign, and the availability of the live concert film on iTunes, McDowell has also released his second single to radio, “My Heart Sings.” The song is an impassioned plea from McDowell, who cries out, “My worship is too deep for my words…I’ve got to cry from the depth of my heart … my vocabulary is too limited when it comes to God.” Much like his previous hits, “My Heart Sings,” is a purely personal moment of communication with God straight from McDowell’s heart that encourages the listener to engage in their own communication with God and their own worship moment.
“We made the film originally in an attempt to capture what it looks, feels and sounds like when God shows up in a room and people respond,” said McDowell. “My heart longed for as many people to see and experience this, and it means that much to me. That’s why I wanted to offer the chance to view it for free, for a limited time.”
“The best you can do is to prepare your heart and be obedient,” says McDowell. “… You have to be willing to become invisible. It’s never about you. Nothing in the service is about you. People aren’t coming to see you. They are coming to experience God.”
William McDowell is a pioneer in modern worship and recently became lead pastor at Deeper Fellowship Church in Orlando, FL. His current album, “Withholding Nothing,” released last year and debuted at Number 1 on both the Billboard Gospel and Praise & Worship charts.
