What happens when a group of 20+ musicians and 10+ songwriters steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Caribbean, and Anglo come together to create a new tradition and sound? What happens when the fusion of Black, Anglo, Latino, Caribbean, and Cuban voices unite together to worship in one voice? Among the 2000 people that attend the Miami Vineyard Community Church, there are over a hundred singers, instrumentalists and songwriters that make up its eclectic worship ministry. For one night, these musicians joined together in worship and invited the church to document the sound that is uniquely MIAMI VINEYARD LIVE.
This distinctive bi-lingual liturgy is filled with many flavors, from Latino claves to gospel two-step to funk and soul to delay-laden rock guitars of modern worship, yet they all work together seamlessly to create a new sound and voice that is authentic and refreshing. From anthems of praise and proclamation to songs of intimacy and adoration, there is a common thread running deep throughout this recording and that is true worship of the Living God as an expression of His Kingdom breaking in on the streets and beaches of Miami, FL.
Miami Vineyard has given my family and I a FRESH worship experience. We enjoy all the different styles of worship music and this album definitely combined many of our favorites! The song that is our favorite is “How Great Is Our God.” It is a great interpretation of this classic worship song and is on repeat a lot in our house Our second favorite “Gloria A Dios Solo (with my whole heart)” a beautiful song that blesses our heart every time we sing and hear it! We actually love the entire CD and would recommend it to anyone who would like a fresh new worship experience.
