Colorado-based worship pastors Dana and Richie Fike have been writing songs for Integrity Music for the past two years. Alongside this they have, since the late 1990s, been leading worship at their own church. Their music is filled with warmth, grace and faith and is anthemic in the same way as Lady Antebellum - but with Jesus at the centre! From the very Antebellum-like title track which opens this 13-song collection and the radio friendly jangly guitar hit "Wait" to the bluesy, ballad closer "That's Why I Praise" this is a top selection of well crafted songs. The overall feel is Americana-based with occasional touches of pop and soft rock while the lyrics never stray from their worship roots. 'The Moment We've Been Waiting For' is truly a collection which inspires moments of genuine praise and joy.

Product Description
There is something beautiful about two souls connected through music. For the band Fike, fronted by Richie Fike and wife Dana, it was like a hand in a glove. The Fikes moved to Colorado Springs, after marrying, to join the ministry of Vanguard Church. It was there that they were inspired to write these infectious worship songs for their church.

The band were Song of the Year winner at GMA Music In The Rockies
