Jesuit Music Ministry of Jesuit Communications brings you a new sound of praise with the album, ONLY FOR YOU, by PRESENCE.
PRESENCE is a team of God-fearing people with a vision of bringing awareness of God’s manifest presence to the four corners of the world through their music. They aspire to share the songs of heaven and God’s touch to those who are seeking.
A group of young-spirited people, their passion for music has evolved from simply shining inside one’s bedroom to playing in a band. Coming from different backgrounds and influence, PRESENCE’s music ranges from alternative to rock, pop, R&B, and even to folk – showcasing the Filipino talent. Their sound is driven by melodic guitar riffs, pumped by a tight combination of drums and bass, followed with smooth keyboards, rhythmic percussion, and sealed with a variety of vocals.
In 2009, PRESENCE released their first single entitled, “Presence,” were it gained appreciation from different music enthusiasts and rode the airwaves in different parts of the country. In 2011, the band contributed to a collaboration album entitled, “Let Your Kingdom Come (The J.O.G.S.G.O. Collaboration Album),” where the carrier single, “Let Your Kingdom Come,” was their original. Four other original songs from the band can be found on the said record.
Among the band’s treasures are their great deal of enthusiasm and optimism towards life. They believe that life is a blessing and that honoring their Creator is of utmost importance. As their name suggests, PRESENCE is felt at every performance!
“Christian artists and preachers around the world are recognizing a SOUND of passionate worship that is coming out of the hearts of Filipino worshipers.
For decades, the Philippines, with the rest of the world, has been so much blessed with praise and worship songs, first from America and then from Australia. Believing that there is a new wave of worship that is coming to the nations today, I am filled with hope and do pray earnestly that God would be magnified through this unique anointing in worship He has given the Filipinos.
This album will be our band’s contribution to that vision. It is our fervent prayer that our songs, our music, our worship in this album will bring joy, laughter, peace, healing, salvation, deliverance, restoration, and revival to those who will listen. May they not just be the PRESENCE’s songs, but become everyone’s personal songs to Jesus. Our hearts are brimming over with faith that through this album, people will find themselves recommitting their lives to Jesus and saying: My heart is ONLY FOR YOU.”
-Pastor Brian Acosta
