We Will Worship is a band that has successfully crafted a style for a new generation of South African gospel lover.
Deeply grounded in traditional South African gospel sounds, yet fused with a distinct creative flair, their music has made major inroads within the gospel scene and has made them forerunners within the contemporary gospel genre.
We Will Worship’s debut album “The Movement Begins…” received critical acclaim and collected industry awards. They made such an impact that the band made on the South African music scene that they were invited to perform live at the 2012 SAMA’s.
Their sophomore album titled “YHWH”, released in 2013, continued in the success of the first album with more industry awards and recognition. Songs from YHWH are regular features on radio stations and TV shows both locally and abroad, with music videos boasting over 1 million views on their YouTube channel.
The band released their highly anticipated album titled “MMUSO” in 2016, which debuted at #1 overall on SA iTunes. The eighteen track album was recorded live in Johannesburg and features dynamic gospel artist, Khaya Mthethwa and Xhosa folk singer, Bongeziwe Mabandla. MMUSO is an authentically contemporary South African work as it features all-new songs and in a total of seven Southern African languages, which makes it We Will Worship’s most diverse album to date, both linguistically and sonically.
The band released their fourth (on December 7, 2018) and fifth albums (6 July 2019), as part of their Seasons Series entitled “Seasons, Vol.1 and Seasons, Vol.2 respectively”. Again, both the album debuted at #1 on overall on SA iTunes and remained at #1 on the Christian/Gospel charts for an unprecedented 5 weeks, ahead of household names like Hillsong, Lauren Daigle, and Spirit of Praise.
We Will Worship continues to reach across cultures and ethnicities evidenced by their 70000 plus subscribers on their YouTube channel, as they write the songs and stories of a generation in an ever-changing and diverse South Africa. They carry the sound of the nation.
