Kim Walker-Smith and Skyler Smith's debut album climbs high in iTunes charts
Kim Walker-Smith and Skyler Smith released their debut musical collaboration, Home, last week.
The anticipation of fans was evident in the album's high chart score, taking the top spot in the iTunes Christian and Gospel chart, and climbing to No 8 in the iTunes overall Top Albums chart.
The album is 18 months in the making and was crafted out of Kim and Skyler's relationship in God and their worship ministry.
Together they explore what it means to be alone and together in the presence of God, wherever that may be.
"Calling this album Home took on so many meanings as the project progressed," explains Skyler. "We've always traveled so much, we've known that 'home' would have to be wherever we found ourselves.
"We didn't want to force anything, but we wanted to come together as a couple and say something personal and honest about our lives in relationship with each other and in relationship with God."
Kim is appreciated by fans for her gift in leading corporate worship as part of Jesus Culture but the 12-track Home is a more intimate worship experience.
She adds: "From the beginning of our marriage, we've been very intentional about blending our lives, taking every opportunity to be 100% completely together, so this album really is a defining moment for us, a creative endeavor that represents who we are as a couple and as worshipers who desire intimacy with our Creator."
