HistoryEdit

Led by Wade Joye and Chris Brown, Elevation Worship began in 2007 at Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.[1][3][4] The band released four independent albums prior to signing with Essential Records. The Sound was released in 2007 (under the name Elevation Church Live), We Are Alive in 2008, God With Us in 2009, and Kingdom Come in 2010.[3] Featuring the song "Give Me Faith", Kingdom Come was the band's first album to break through on the Billboard charts, reaching No. 5 on Heatseekers, No. 42 on Independent Albums and at No. 17 on the Christian Albums chart.[5][1]

The band released their debut studio album, For the Honor, under Sony Music Nashville's Essential Records label on November 21, 2011.[1][3] It saw chart success on Billboard magazine charts, including No. 1 on Heatseekers, No. 19 on the Christian Albums, and the Billboard 200 at No. 193.[1][6]

The band's second album under the Essential label,[1][3] Nothing Is Wasted, was released on February 19, 2013. A deluxe edition of the album also included studio recordings of each song. It also saw chart success – reaching No. 1 on the Christian Albums chart and at No. 41 on the Billboard 200.[1][7][8][9]

Their third album, Only King Forever, was released on January 14, 2014, debuting at their highest charting position, No. 23 on the Billboard 200[10] and featured guest vocalist Darlene Zschech from Hillsong Worship.

On August 1, 2014, the band recorded their fourth album, Wake Up the Wonder, live at the Spectrum in Charlotte. It was released on November 25 that same year. The album debuted at No. 58 on the Billboard 200 in its first week, as well as No. 1 on Billboard's Christian Album chart.[11] On July 31, 2015, they held another live recording at Time Warner Cable Arena for their fifth album, Here as in Heaven, their first album released on their own label, Elevation Worship Records. It was released on February 5, 2016, and peaked No. 1 on US album charts.[1][7] Their fifth album, There Is a Cloud, was released on March 17, 2017, after being recorded at Elevation Ballantyne during the church's revival, "Code Orange Revival". After There is a Cloud, Elevation Worship released their first Spanish album, Lo Harás Otra Vez, on August 18, 2017. This album peaked at No. 2 on the US Latin album chart. On September 28, 2018, Elevation Worship released their eleventh live album, Hallelujah Here Below, which was nominated for the 2019 Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. On April 12, 2019, Elevation Worship released Paradoxology, which was a reimagined album with different takes on the songs from Hallelujah Here Below, like "Here Again", "Echo", and "Won't Stop Now". Paradoxology included a single, "With You".[12] Aleluya (En La Tierra) is Elevation Worship's second album in Spanish and was released on July 19, 2019. It peaked at eight on US Latin Album Sales.
