ALSO, it is the extended version of “How Great Is Your Love” ft Keith Staten and Claude Deuce! They are amazing on this track and it is only available on the NEW remastered and extended Version of the Third Culture Worship Project. SO if you bought this album a year ago you do NOT have this song. It has just been released.
AND even thought it is on Itunes it is NOT available for individual sale…it is only available when you buy the whole album. So this is a great deal! Please help us get this song out. Many folks think they already have it but they are not aware of the NEW extended version…. 10 mins of worship for FREE!
Hope this is a blessing to you all. Thanks to those of you who have supported us and helped spread the word.

Hey everyone! We are so excited that Vaughn Thompson Jr.’s Debut Album was selected as part of the Top 5 Indie Projects on Planet Earth:) LOL! Check out the link below to see WLM’s “The Best Of The Best” October issue. ( A Great resource for all dept. in worship.) They liken him to Israel Houghton and Tommy Walker. And for those of us who know Vaughn know that that is a true description of Vaughn’s heart, talent, and posture in worship. This is how they described it:
“Vaughn Thompson, Jr.
With a beautiful piano drive and an eye toward R&B, Vaughn Thompson, Jr, has Houghton’s passionate highs and Walker’s straightforward devotional poise. ” -WLM
WLM has been an excellent resource to Third Culture Worship and we are so grateful for them. We attended their conference this year (NWLC) and it was so worth it! We are going again next year and recommend you do the same 😛 Check out their website and stay current with what is going on in the Body of Christ in the area of worship.06.22.11
