New Hosanna! Music Album Focuses On
      Power Of God's Presence
?

Mobile, Alabama -- God truly inhabits the praises of his people. Just ask the choir and congregation of First Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
 
Hearts were touched and lives changed as God's people cried out for more of His holy presence during the recording of Let Your Glory Fall, a live worship album recorded during an evening concert at the church, America's fourth largest Baptist congregation. 

Recorded on the Hosanna! Music label, Let Your Glory Fall features worship leader Don Moen, the choir of First Baptist, and a variety of musical guests including vocalists Kelly Willard and Lenny LeBlanc and musicians Abraham Laboriel and Justo Almario.
 
"We often sing about 'showers of blessings'," says music pastor Kim 
Noblitt, "but what happened during that recording can only be described as Niagara Falls. There was such a purity of praise and God-directed worship... God breathed on our church at that time in a way that we had never experienced before."
 
Recalling a church packed with guests from all over the south Florida 
area, Noblitt says the songs and music "kept the focus on the Lord, not on issues."
 
"The language of praise is universal, not exclusive to any one group," 
said Noblitt who referred to the concert/recording as an "unbelievable, unifying experience that transcended denominations." 

Don Moen a creative force and gold-selling artist with a worshiper's heart, Don Moen is well-known in two arenas. As a musician, songwriter, singer and worship leader, he has earned critical acclaim and awards for his own musical efforts. As Executive Vice President of Creative at Integrity Incorporated, he has had a hand in producing or overseeing numerous projects which have helped make the company an industry leader. In both roles, Moen is realizing a dream of reaching thousands worldwide with tools to bring them "into the manifest presence of God." 

Moen was raised in Minnesota before leaving for Tulsa, Oklahoma, to attend college at Oral Roberts University. It was during his studies at 
ORU that his musical abilities caught the eye of Terry Law Ministries. 
Moen was recruited as a musician for the evangelistic ministry, to play 
guitar, trombone and on occasion, violin. During 10 years with the 
ministry, he became responsible for much of the group's arrangements and musical productions. 

In 1984 he was approached by Michael Coleman, president and co-founder of Integrity Music to be the worship leader on the seventh Hosanna! Music live praise and worship recording, Give Thanks. Moen agreed and the resulting project has become the most popular recording in Integrity's history, and a benchmark for the genre, selling more than 800,000 copies. 

In his current role at Integrity, Moen's impact is felt greatly not only 
in the company, but also among hundreds of thousands touched by 
Integrity's music. As Creative Director, he strategies the musical 
direction of numerous high profile products. In this role, he works 
closely with A&R (Artist & Repertoire) and music publishing in the 
development of worship, choral and children's products. 

Moen has served as executive producer for- many Integrity releases while working closely with fellow songwriters and worship leaders and focusing on the research and development of new products. 

Even elbow deep in product development at Integrity, Moen still takes time for his own creative pursuits. He has received Gospel Music 
Association Dove Award nominations for his song "God Will Make A Way" and for the album, Worship with Don Moen. And, in 1994, he won a Dove Award for the musical God With Us. Moen's most recent releases include Emmanuel Has Come, a live worship Christmas album and Let Your Glory Fall, a praise and worship album recorded live at First Baptist Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. 

"Being a creator, I want to pour my life into giving birth to new 
things," Moen explains. "I want to find new artists and that new niche 
for the future of Integrity." Moen contends that a heart of worship can 
be found in many styles of music. "My vision is that one day Integrity 
will be a broad-based media group, creating products that reach a broad audience."

Moen resides in Mobile with his wife, Laura, and their five children.
