19 years later, in 1989, the all-time best-selling Church Choir Series, READY TO SING was born.
Fast forward 21 years to 2010, and the two iconic titles come together for the first time, giving us perhaps the most powerfully compelling Easter musical in the history of the Ready To Sing Series, The King Is Coming, created by Russell Mauldin and Sue C. Smith, arranged by Russell Mauldin.
“For so long God’s people had longed for the Messiah. True to the prophecy of His coming, cries of praise could be heard ringing through the streets of Jerusalem as Christ the King entered the gates of the city. Declarations of praise turned to shouts of derision. Crowds yelled ‘Crucify Him!’ But this was no ordinary king. The grave could not hold Him, and He arose, triumphant, three days later. Today, His Bride, the Church, lives in the light of the promise that He will return for us~ The King Is Coming.”
Masterfully arranged by Russell Mauldin in the Ready to Sing style, this 35-minute Ready to Sing Easter musical is filled with classic songs and hymns like “The Day He Wore My Crown,” “Jesus, We Crown You with Praise,” “Written in Red,” “He is Exalted,” and “The King Is Coming.” Powerful narration by Sue C. Smith may be combined with the special DVD Accompaniment Track to enhance your live presentation of The King Is Coming.
Songs included: Rejoice, the Lord Is King Medley (The King Is Coming/Christ Arose/Rejoice, the Lord Is King/Crown Him with Many Crowns), His Triumphant Entrance Medley (The King Is Coming/He Is Exalted/Praise Him! Praise Him!), The Darkest Night Underscore, The Day He Wore My Crown, Written in Red, The Living One, Jesus, We Crown You with Praise, and The King Is Coming with Amazing Grace
