Produced by musical director for the stars, Chong Lim, the album represents a partnership between ABC Music, Universal Music Australia and World Vision Australia. With guest appearances from a who's-who of Australian and international celebrities, Hope is an album like no other, its theme of spiritual and personal rejuvenation through the joy of music offering a fresh view of timeless, uplifting classic songs.
Featuring 'leading lady' of Christian music, Darlene Zschech, chart-topping vocalist Olivia Newton-John and young stars Mark Vincent and Stan Walker, alongside a cappella vocal legends The Idea of North. Also starring: Anna Maria La Spina, Annalisa Kerrigan and Andrew Naylor.
The one-hit-after-another playlist is held together by inspiring reflections on Hope by 'the voice of Australia's conscience', the Rev. Tim Costello.
