Singer, songwriter, and worship leader Hope Darst releases a brand radio version of "Never Walk Alone." The original version of the song was taken from her 2022 EP If The Lord Builds The House.
Darst writes, "I hope this song continues to remind you that no matter what mountain you are facing, or valley you are walking through, that God is faithful and that we never walk alone."
It was in 2020 when Hope Darst quickly gained everyone's attention, thanks to her powerhouse vocals and stellar songwriting all on full display on her debut album Peace Be Still. By 2021, Darst received three GMA Dove Award nominations (New Artist of the Year, Worship Recorded Song for "Peace Be Still," and Inspirational Song for "Promise Keeper"), while "Peace Be Still" received a BMI Christian Music Award recognition, and at press time, the song has received 100M+ streams.
Yet simply said, Hope Darst is a worship leader who desires to see people encounter the love of Jesus while being restored and set free in His presence. Through sincere, artful expression or congregational praise music, Darst's goal is always the same - to worship God in everything, and it's this passion that has allowed her to follow up her debut album with more new songs that came from an unexpected process.
If the Lord Builds the House came to life and includes songs written both by Darst and her longtime collaborators Jonathan Smith, Mia Fieldes, Andrew Holt, Ethan Hulse, Jason Ingram, Sarah Reeves, and Casey Brown. In addition, there are new collaborations on this project with Austin Davis, Reuben Morgan, and fellow artists David Leonard and Jon Reddick. Leonard co-wrote, produced, and is featured on "Give You the Glory," and Reddick joined in on a new version of "If The Lord Builds The House."
Hope Darst lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, David, and their two daughters. She is a Fair Trade Services recording artist and also serves as a worship leader at The Belonging Company.For more information, visit her website, HopeDarst.com.
