Praise You in This Storm
Written by Rachael on 19th June 2020
Natalie Grant will release her tenth studio album, No Stranger, on the 28th of August. We recently added “My Weapon” from the upcoming album to our radio playlist.
“Praise You in This Storm” was originally recorded by Casting Crowns in 2005 and it quickly became one of the band’s most renowned hits. Natalie said, “When my husband co-wrote this song with Mark Hall of Casting Crowns almost 15 years ago, I had no idea how it would comfort me while I was in the middle of my own storm of cancer in 2017. Because of how personal it became to me, I decided to record it. We recorded it with the London Symphony last summer, but I had no idea then that it would be such a perfect message for such a time as this.”
When asked about the new version, Mark Hall said, “Natalie captured the heart of this song so beautifully. Raw, broken, and honest. Just the way our worship should be.”
Eight-time GRAMMY® nominee Natalie Grant has remained one of Christian music’s top-selling artists since 2005. Known for powerful vocals, heart-gripping lyrics and passionate performances, Natalie has since gone on to amass more than 500 million streams and has garnered several number one singles on radio stations around the world.

A fierce advocate for social justice, she’s also the co-founder of Hope for Justice, an international non-profit organization with 32 offices spanning 10 countries, that works to end modern-day slavery. The singer and her husband, GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter/producer Bernie Herms, live in Nashville with their three daughters.
