The young adult conferences organised by the International House of Prayer Kansas City, Onething, have in the past produced some fine albums of congregational worship and this 2015 release is well up to spec though I was a tad disappointed that the marvellous Misty Edwards only gets one track. But then her stunning rendition of the Kevin Prosch classic "So Come" is captivating. I was also blessed by the newish songs by Jaye Thomas (the joyful "Famous") and the stirring title track penned and sung by Jon Thurlow. Elsewhere Laura Hackett Park offers a powerful rendition of "In The Presence Of Angels" written by Roy Fields, the worship leader at the epicentre of the Lakeland Revival. 'Shout Your Name' is crammed with passionate and empowering worship music which could touch many who weren't privileged enough to attend the event.

Onething 2013 included a strong musical line-up made up of new and previous worship artists. Laura Hackett, Matt Gilman, Justin Rizzo, Jon Thurlow, Anna Blanc, Ryan Kondo and Jaye Thomas are all featured on this album performing their newest songs, and new Onething artists Zac Dinsmore, Jonas Park and Wallace and Rachel Faagutu join them in worshipping and praising Jesus with their own new songs.
