William McDowell's Arise, like his first album, As We Worship, is another ambitious two-disc affair, this time produced by McDowell and Clay Bogan III and recorded live on December 10, 2010 at the Christian Life Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. McDowell knows how to make congregational singing work, and with featured guest performances by Stacey Joseph, worship leaders David & Nicole Binion, Josh Dufrene, and twin sisters Martha Munizzi and Mary Alessi, he proves it once again. ~ Steve Leggett
