Unmatched talent, a passion for ministry and a deep love for the Church—for 20 years these have been constants for the musical tour de force known as Selah, comprised of Todd Smith, Amy Perry and Alan Hall. In their two-decade career, the trio has achieved more than four million units in music sales and received eight Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, a Gold-certified album, and eight No. 1 singles.
Selah is known for their signature vocal harmonies including hits such as, “You Raise Me Up,” “Wonderful, Merciful Savior,” and "You Amaze Us.” Smith, Hall and Perry together have graced stages like Carnegie Hall, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, and the Grand Ole Opry, while touring with such artists as Casting Crowns, Point of Grace, Steven Curtis Chapman, Natalie Grant, Michael W. Smith and more.
The award-winning trio will release a new album, Firm Foundation, on November 1, 2019 with Integrity Music. This will mark their first release with the new label partnership.
"We live in a day and age where everyone is being encouraged to find and live their own truth," explains Selah's Todd Smith about the new album's theme. "Historically that only leads to chaos. Instead of the Church influencing culture, we are letting culture lead us. We have more access to the Word of God than any generation before us, and yet we are one of the most biblically illiterate generations. Selah is hoping and praying for a generation whose foundation is Jesus and the writings of His Apostles, and that God uses these songs to remind people to turn to Him. He is our hope, our joy, and our foundation. Hopefully, these songs speak truth about thesethings in some small way."
The new album features 11 tracks, and includes the first official song written by all three members of the trio titled, "Let The Saints Sing." Firm Foundation also features a variety of styles such as the Americana track, "Always Gonna Be," the introspective song, "My Soul Be Satisfied," and the modern hymn, "Yet Not I, But Through Christ In Me," among others.
Selah’s hope and prayer has always been for their music to carry a message of hope and healing, share the gospel of Jesus, and ultimately point people to the love of God.
