Getty’s Sing! event draws 8,500 to Nashville, 85,000 worldwide

Last week, more than 8,500 individuals from 35 different countries and all over the United States gathered in Nashville, Tennessee, for the 2023 Getty Sing! Music worship conference. Another 80,000 attendees from 120 other nations joined electronically through singglobal.com.

GRAMMY-nominated recording artists and hymn authors Keith and Kristyn Getty created the Sing! Conference in 2017.  The couple, from Northern Ireland, continue to revitalize modern hymns and again given them significant influence on the Christian community.

Recognized for their songs “In Christ Alone” and “Christ Our Hope in Life and Death,” the Getty’s are regarded as “pre-eminent” hymn authors who have revolutionized evangelical worship, claims Christianity Today. Every year, over 100 million people across the world listen to their music, and they have written or co-written 38 of the top 500 CCLI tracks in the US and UK.

The event’s broad and educational content, according to participants, brightened their spirits. It featured late-night performances, 33 breakout seminars, and events centered around children’s and family ministry, choral music, creative arts, and international missions. A number of well-known Christian lecturers and performers led sessions during the conference, including John Piper, David Platt, John Lennox, Laura Story, Shane & Shane, Andy Crouch, Ruth Chou Simons, Shai Linne, Sandra McCracken, Jeremy Begbie, and many more.

“We are so grateful to all who joined us for three of the most inspiring, creative, global, and enriching days of our lives,” said Keith Getty in response to the conference’s resounding popularity. Every speaker, musician, and artist encouraged us and challenged us to strengthen our resolve to see the name of Christ spread across the world, especially the 8,500 attendees who joined their voices to the choir.

Hymns for the church of the twenty-first century are still being selected by Getty Music, and their music is among the most widely translated in the present.

Since their breakthrough with “In Christ Alone,” Getty Music has offered a vast library of songs, albums, sheet music, and instructional materials to the worldwide church. Their events and concerts inspire believers to sing about their religion. The Getty Music Foundation was founded in 2021 as a distinct nonprofit organization with the mission of advancing Christ-centered songwriting and singing in resource-limited regions of the world.
