This CD-Rom digital songbook contains printable lead sheets, chord charts and lyric text files for 25 of Desperation Band's best songs. The band, which is built around a collaboration of three worship leaders from New Life Church in Colorado (Jared Anderson, Jon Egan and Glenn Packiam), have produced four albums to date and there are tracks from all four included here. The CD-Rom launches in your web browser and contains 30 second excerpts from each song, as well as providing easy access to all the resources you need to be able to equip your church and worship team to perform any of them. The most recognisable is probably "I Am Free", which was a hit for the Newsboys, but there are many songs here which would bring life and love for God to any youth worship event, as well as shaking up any occasional church member you might bravely venture to subject them to. If you want to include any of these vibrant songs on a future worship set list, you'd be well advised to get hold of this package.
