While Cinque Cullar may have altered his look since we last saw him, we can rest assured that the worship remains intact. The Chicago based worship leader is preparing for the release of Life and Worship, the follow up to his debut Letters to God that produced the singles Continual Praise and Let the Glory of the Lord. .
“I had some reservations about doing a live CD,” said Cullar. “Letters to God was released almost three years ago, and I hadn’t given much thought to doing a new project, let alone a live CD. I then thought, wait, I lead people in worship almost every Sunday of the year. I can do this. I had a Philippians 4:13 and Zechariah 4:6 moment. Standing in God’s ability and not my own power gave me what I needed to honor God and do my part.” Cinque is also proud to say that God served as executive producer of the project. “It was a God thing, from start to finish. The Lord opened the doors for us to go to Sweden, and when I tell you God ALWAYS has a witness, believe it. The people came with open hearts and minds and great expectations; we had a very meaningful encounter. What you will hear is worship, unrestrained, free flowing and all that.
A radio single, Believer’s Declaration is making the rounds at radio as Cullar prepares to celebrate the CD Release with a concert in Chicago on November 14th.
