Who Sounds Like Who
Maroon 5Luis FonsiAvicii

Internationally recognized praise band Planetshakers releases Rain Part 2 globally April 12 from Venture3Media (V3M). Available to preorder beginning today (April 5) at iTunes and Google Play, and to stream April 12 from Spotify, Apple Music and more, the new five-song digital EP from Planetshakers was recorded at Planetshakers Conferences in the Philippines and Malaysia in January and features over 29-minutes of music.

Beginning today (April 5), Planetshakers also releases the single “I Choose You” from Rain Part 2 to iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and more digital and streaming outlets everywhere. The song, which is led by Joth Hunt (who also produced and mixed the EP), declares that God is the one to look to, no matter what the circumstances.

This theme is further carried in the Hunt-led “Only Way” single, which released last month, is featured on the new EP and became an encouragement to this multi-talented worship leader through his battle with cancer.

“God had me write that song a week before I knew this was going to happen. It was the perfect tool God helped me to use to declare victory over the situation,” says Joth, adding, “It’s easy to sing these songs week-to-week, but when you are actually going through it, these lyrics become more…they become an anthem.”
 

Forming for the first Planetshakers Conference in 1997, Australian Christian Worship band, Planetshakers is passionate to see generations worldwide unite together to worship God. Their heart is to see people encounter God, be transformed by his presence and empowered to make a difference in their world.


Hailing originally from Adelaide, the Planetshakers Band is now based in Melbourne at Planetshakers Church, under the leadership of Senior Pastors Russell and Sam Evans.


With over 20 internationally acclaimed albums, the band tours annually to the USA, UK, Europe, South Africa, South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Who Are the Social Club Misfits???

Check out the Interlnc Article Here

Marty and Fern are the Christian hip hop duo Social Club Misfits from Miami, Florida. Their music centers around bringing the message of the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ to ‘misfits’ all over the world. They each had individual music projects in process when they decided to collaborate on a song together in 2011. From there they released several projects and went on to form the band Social Club – earning loyal followers along the way. Their US album was featured in YLO100.  

Calling himself a “broken vessel for the Lord” Fern brings a vulnerability and transparency to the music they create. He is a man with a past and admits God saved him from himself. “I just love God for bringing me where he brought me to – from where I was at. You know definitely like, in a pit. So, I just give thanks for that,” Fern says.

Drawing from that history and the realities of life now, Fern has a way of finding just the right words and crafting them so they reach the hurting parts of each person who listens to their personal stories and songs. When he speaks his words flow with a unique rhythm, reminiscent of the poetry found in the Psalms.

Marty grew up “playing the church game” until he was eighteen when God rescued him, not just once but over and over again. “There’s this idea in the church that things are okay. But there are people in the church who are broken… my journey stemmed from people who broke my trust and hurt me – cut me deep. And so, it put me on this long path of depression and sadness. And now I can honestly say I don’t even know how I felt that way because God rescued me and I don’t know who that person was,” Marty says.

And, that’s where Social Club Misfits direct their attention. They reach out to people, young and old, who’ve been hurt – whether by the church, family, someone, or something else. “People who feel like an outcast and feel as though they don’t belong because they don’t fit in. They aren’t a ‘popular.’”

“Our heart is to help you understand that if you are weird, God made you like that – and it’s okay. Embrace who God created you to be,” encourages Marty.
