India's Pearl City Worship get international push

GRAMMY-nominated record producer Ian Eskelin is behind the international release of the album 'We Won't Be Silent' by Pearl City Worship to be released by Radiate Music on 18th March. A press release reported on Eskelyn's "discovery" of the worship collective: "Amidst a population of over 1.25 billion people in India, seven-plus million in the city of Hyderabad alone, Eskelin stepped into Pearl City Church earlier this year and found a vibrant worship team leading thousands in praise to their Creator, all in English."

Already released in India, Pearl City Worship's debut album, produced by Eskelin, soared to number one on the iTunes Religious sales chart, topping Hindu, Muslim and all other religious recordings in India. Said Pearl City Church's worship pastor Allen Ganta, "I think God strategically put us here in Hyderabad so we can pull down Heaven into this place. They have a hundred million gods here. They don't mind adding Jesus into this pantheon of gods, but where is the real truth? After looking for answers everywhere, and praying to all these gods, it's only after you find Jesus that you'll have the answer for everything."
