Recorded live at Redemption Church in Greenville, South Carolina, with thousands of worshippers in attendance, One Place Live is signature Tasha Cobbs – replete with passionate, heart-tugging songs that instantly infuse the spirit. “They are what we call songs of the Lord,” explains Cobbs. “I can be leading worship or getting dressed for worship and a song will simply fall on me. Some songs are just moment songs, or maybe just four or five words will come, then I’ll go home and finish it,” says Cobbs.
The first single from the album is the moving “Jesus Saves”. “God spoke to me and gave me peace,” says Cobbs of the song’s inspiration. “Not just spiritual salvation; He saved me from the rejection and depression I used to feel. Jesus can save you from whatever it is you’re being overtaken by. That’s what this song is about.”
Produced by Vashawn Mitchell, One Place Live is being released in five different versions: CD (11 tracks); Digital Album (11 tracks); Limited Tour Edition (Wal-Mart Exclusive / 15 tracks); Digital Deluxe (16 tracks) and Vinyl (8 tracks).
