For worship leader/musician/songwriter Dave Fitzgerald, its the slow burn that fuels everything, an unwavering passion for Gods presence as experienced in authentic worship. His calling was built for going the distance. Designed not for fame or notoriety, but for the long haul, his life is spent in steady pursuit of Kingdom work this side of Heaven. Fitzgeralds Kingsway worship debut, Hope of Heaven, certainly bears out this idea, although a five-star reception on iTunes might suggest a promise of glory, if that was the point. Instead, it is the realization of a dream born in the heart of a 14-year old Pennsylvania-born drummer boy, the live CD embodies the collaborative, vertical approach to worship. Featuring special guests Brian and Jenn Johnson, Rita Springer, Chris McClarney, Christa Black, Kristene Mueller-DiMarco and backup from the amazing army of Jesus Culture musicians, Hope of Heaven delivers on both fronts. Its an eclectic collection of 10 powerful songs with a Euro-pop feel, full of piano driven anthems and melodic guitars - all recorded live at Bethel Church in Redding, California.
