In honor of the Queen's 70 years of faith and service, song writers Graham Kendrick, Mal Pope and the contemporary worship band Rend Collective have been commissioned to write "Rise Up and Serve." The song is not only a prayer of thanksgiving for the Queen's service, but it is a call for God's people to be united in order to serve one another.
The official version released on YouTube featuring choirs from around the world. In the choir are notable Christian artists such as Darlene Zschech, Brian Doerksen, Graham Kendrick, Lou Fellingham, Sounds of New Wine choir with Creative Director Lawrence Johnson, British Gospel singer Muyiwa Olarewaju OBE, who adds his own words of tribute to the Queen in Hausa, Swahli, Igbo and Yoruba, and the Aldgate School Children's Choir led by Pat Bilbrough.
The video was produced by Les Moir from the Word & Worship Trust who played a significant role in bringing together The UK Blessing, which has been watched by nearly 5 million people.
