Aussie duo for KING & COUNTRY are sitting pretty at number seven in the Billboard 200 album charts following the release of their latest long player What Are We Waiting For?
It’s the second Top 10 album for brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, and to celebrate they’re offering fans a free special live, online worldwide performance titled What Are We Waiting For? | The Worldwide Special.
The live performance, filmed in California’s Mojave Desert isn’t just a celebration of another career milestone though. The concert will also be raising much needed funds for Ukrainian refugees through the charity Convoy of Hope.
With one of their specialities being disaster response, Convoy of Hope work with local churches, businesses and government agencies to offer help and hope to affected communities.
“Just over a week into the album release, and it’s fair to say that it feels unlike any other, particularly with what the world has faced, and continues to face,” said Joel. “Our hope is that this family, spiritual and global record will meet listeners right where they are, and be a soundtrack as we step into the future.”
Luke continues, “It’s with no small dose of gratitude that we say ‘thank you’! As a small way to express it, we’ve put together a special performance from the Mojave Desert playing a good portion of the new record to celebrate and commemorate the launch and also raise funding for Ukrainian refugees.”
The concert will debut on Friday March 25 at 10am (Brisbane time), and we’ve teamed up with for KING & COUNTRY to bring it to you! You can watch the special event by pressing play in the video below, or via the 96five Facebook page.
