In the world of Messianic worship music, Karen is undoubtedly one of its most popular practitioners. This new set offers 13 praise and worship songs sung in a mixture of Hebrew and English. This is Messianic praise brought well into the 21st century with driving bass lines and expansive synth and orchestral fills. From the opening "Overture" to the upbeat "All Of Creation Sings", softer and piano led "Ana Adonai" and instrumental "Lord Of Breakthroughs" there is plenty of variety in both pace and arrangement style. Karen's voice is rich and full and never sounds harsh or out of place even when switching language in the middle of a song. The songs are well crafted and the contemporary arrangements bring out their strong melodies. An album to bring the listener into a place of worship even if Hebrew is not their language.

Sar Shalom is an Old Testament Hebrew name for God that means Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
As the Nations desperately search for peace, we as believers in Yeshua (Jesus), the Prince of Peace, can offer them His everlasting peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7).
Recorded in the embattled Holy Land, this collection of songs in both English and Hebrew offers strength, comfort, hope, and victory in Sar Shalom, the Prince of Peace.
Karen Davis is the worship leader at Carmel Assembly (Kehilat HaCarmel), a Messianic congregation located on the top of Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel (Pictured on the cover of this CD).
