Australian singer, songwriter and worship leader Darlene Zschech's brand new live worship album, Here I Am Send Me, released via Integrity Music, makes its debut on Billboard Top Christian Albums Chart at #32. This pales in comparison to Zschech's former album Revealing Jesus which debuted on the same chart at #4.

The album also features "You Will Be Praised," written with Baloche and Johnson, "Beloved," a modern hymn of surrender co-written by Zschech with Mooring and Casey Moore, "Love and Wonder," written by the Zschech's teen daughter, Zoe,and Bonnie Gray, "Kingdom Come," co-written with Thomas Macken, and "Go," written with Mak.
