2018 live worship album from multi-platinum artist, absolute best-selling creator and acclaimed actor Michael W. Smith. In some ways, Michael is a statesman, on the fulcrum of Christian music in pivotal moments. It’s said that the center of a lion never goes away, and Michael is not content staying with the equilibrium. At a loss for what his voice must be toward the top of 2016, this prolific artist comes roaring back with two full-length albums in a countercultural response to the divisive national sentiment of 2017 and the mean-spirited banter on social media. With Surrounded, Michael’s desire is to unify the Church’s diverse expressions into one passionate, joyful cry of worship. Gathering worshippers around him and his band Nov. 2 for an intimate, set within the round recording of Surrounded at The Factory / Jamison Hall in Franklin, TN.
