“It’s about finding the people who have the same kind of heart. We’re all excited about this because it’s so different. It’s not like any other tour I’ve ever seen with all of us together for the whole night. All of them could do a whole night by themselves but they all understand that all of us doing our part make it a better thing. Everybody has the same outlook and humility about them so it has been beautiful. Everybody has been receptive to suggestions as long as it makes things work great. That’s really unique and that makes me grateful for the artists I’ll be traveling with.”
With all the number one singles and awards, do you feel pressure to top all of your previous work when you go in to make a new album?
“You know, there is always the pressure of doing something great, but I do the very best I can. I pray for the right songs to touch people’s hearts. At the end of the day, I want songs the church can sing and are accessible to the church worldwide. When I say the church, I mean all kinds, from the most conservative to the most crazy. I want to find songs that will help people and kind of become the soundtrack to their life with God. That’s what I’m always praying for, and I’m going to continue to work as hard as I can at that.”
