"My first memory of Gospel music, I was five years old, my father took me to an Andrae Crouch concert. I think had someone taken a picture of me, it
would [with my] mouth open, stunned."
Since that fateful day, Israel Houghton had a profound breakthrough into the Gospel music world. He would form Israel & NewBreed to release "New
Season," a prophetic title in that they would push the boundries of domestic praise & worship until they overflowed internationally (Alive in South
Africa, 2005; A Deeper Level, 2007).
The recent BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music award recipient, returns with a live worship experience captured in an expansive tour of Asia. Covered: Alive In Asia is Israel & NewBreed's latest installment in their critically acclaimed "Alive in..." series. The DVD was
recorded during Houghton's recent tour in Asia before packed crowds in Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Jakarta, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea.
Covered: This DVD takes the musical passion of the genre to a whole new level for the cross-cultural worship leader. With every new sound, Israel &
NewBreed continue to transform the scope of contemporary worship.

In the dynamic world of praise and worship, the music never stops as believers seek new songs to express their hearts to God. No one knows this better than gospel-praise powerhouse Israel & New Breed and its bandleader, Israel Houghton, who for more than a decade have been resourcing the Church with such classics as "Friend of God", "You Are Good", "Again I Say Rejoice" and "Alpha and Omega".
Why, then, did the group go on hiatus, waiting five years before recording...
