Song Featured Alongside New Film, Multiplied, in Theaters May 20th and 21st

NASHVILLE, TENN. (APRIL 12, 2024) Today world-renowned worship leader and songwriter, Alexander Pappas, releases his first new song in more than 1.5 years. This song, “A Great Awakening,” is the first solo worship song Pappas has released after serving as part of Young & Free and Hillsong. Click here to listen to this powerful new worship song and view the official lyric video below.

“The phrase ‘A Great Awakening’ carries an unusual resonance, not because it lacks roots in biblical language, but rather due to the powerful connections it evokes,” describes Alexander Pappas of this new song. “Initially, your thoughts may drift towards monumental spiritual revivals such as Azusa Street, The Welsh Revival, or the Jesus People Movement. Moments which when I think about them, stir an overwhelming sensation within my spirit that this world we live in is desperate for another move of God. Dare I say, NEEDS it.”

Pappas is not new to creating songs that resonate with the worshipper as a two-time GRAMMY® nominee, he has penned anthems like “Alive,” “Wake,” “Real Love,” and “Echo” (Elevation Worship). Leading worship for more than a decade, this song is a return to a passion for the next awakening.

He adds, “While I remain uncertain whether a song—this song, which is a prayer in melody—has the power to ignite such a great awakening, I am firm in the belief that true revival begins individually—with me, with you. I pray that this song sparks within us a profound longing for the next unmistakable move of God.”

The release of “A Great Awakening” also coincides with the upcoming movie “Multiplied,” appearing in 1300 cinemas across the U.S. on May 20 and 21. A music video for the song will debut before the start of the movie, which will include Pappas in a studio along with revival-style footage weaved throughout.
