Kari Jobe released her self-titled debut album back in February 2009 and captivated people immediately with her heart for worship. Her rendition of “Revelation Song” made her an instant favorite worldwide and helped her earn 2 Dove Awards. Being the daughter of a minister, Kari was surrounded by worship music for as long as she can remember, “I grew up in a Christian home, my family ministered a lot at local churches,” she says. “I grew up in a ministry culture where people connected to God through music and through the Word.”
Besides being a powerful vocalist and songwriter, Kari Jobe is also a commanding worship leader at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas. She started leading worship at the young age of 13, and hasn’t stopped ever since. “My heart for worship is my life, my passion, it’s what I love more than anything in the world,” says Kari. “And to me it’s not about music and it’s not about just writing songs, but it’s about connecting people to the heart of God and to the presence of God.”
Kari's song "Steady My Heart" is an encouragement for anyone going through struggles in life, and a reminder that God is a refuge through the storms of life. It was a follow up to her single “We Are;” an organic and extremely heartfelt song about letting your light shine for Christ.
"I'm called to impact other people and shine a light, just by living life," Kari mentioned in an interview with Scott and Kelli about "We Are." "You don't have to do anything extra special, you just need to be filled with the Spirit of God." Both songs are part of her album Where I Find You (released in January 2012) which paired Jobe with accomplished producer Ed Cash- who has worked with the likes of Chris Tomlin, Steven Curtis Chapman and Dave Barnes. The album received raved reviews and debuted at No. 1 and No. 10 on Billboard’s National Christian and Gospel and Top 200 charts.
Kari's recent release Majestic, features the single "I Am Not Alone," a song about God's promised and constant presence over every hill we climb and through every valley we walk through. The highs and lows are a certainty in one's life, and Keri reminds us that God's presence and help is equally as certain.
The singer recently took home the award for "Female Artist of the Year," at the first annual K-LOVE fan awards.
