|Title: Here I Am To Worship, Tim Hughes|
Subtitle: Worship Together
Release date: December 2001
This solo album from Worship Together introduces the UK's Tim Hughes, a young but mature and gifted songwriter/worship leader. Hailing from the same church as Matt Redman, Hughes has his own brand of infectious melodies and rhythms that draw the listener into abandon worship.
The first time I ever came across Tim Hughes he was leading worship at a church youth group. My friend and pastor, Mike pilavachi, who heads up Soul Survivor said, 'this guy's definitely got something.' He was right.
Tim has a real gift for leading worship, and an inspired way of writing songs for the saints to sing. But even more than this, I admire him for his humility, and passion for God. Someone recently said that the real test these days isn't in the writing and the producing of new and great music; the real test is in the Godliness of those who deliver it. Tim is a man most definitely running in the right direction. Behind these fresh new songs is a faithful heart.
