Sixstepsrecords will release Passion: Let the Future Begin March 12, recorded live during the Passion 2013 conference last month at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
Along with the voices of more than 60,000 students, the album features new music from Passion worship leaders Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, David Crowder, Christy Nockels and Kristian Stanfill.
Passion: Let the Future Begin (EMI CMG Distribution) is the follow-up to Passion: White Flag, which sold more than 48,000 units—a 61% increase above 2011's Passion: Here For You, and reached No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on Christian SoundScan.
During the Passion conference Jan. 1-4, students from 56 countries and more than 2,000 universities raised more than $3 million to help fund the freedom of more than 27 million slaves globally.
During the final session, Passion founder and pastor Louie Giglio asked students to take what happened inside of their hearts and carry it into the world.
"Jesus was the original abolitionist," said Giglio, who is known for his campaign to end slavery worldwide. "It is for freedom Christ has sent us. And our freedom is for freedom."
