From her website, www.karijobe.com:
After being established as one of the industry's premier worship leaders with her Dove Award-winning, self-titled debut, Kari Jobe continues to serve as a worship pastor at Gateway Church in Southlake,Texas, and released her highly anticipated follow-up album, (Sparrow), in January 2012. This album also earned Kari her first GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
Produced by Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Chris August) and Matt Bronleewe (Natalie Imbruglia, Josh Wilson), Where I Find You, which includes Kari's hit radio singles "We Are" and "Steady My Heart," which saw success at AC Monitored and Indicator charts. "We Are" is an engaging departure from her previous effort—both sonically and thematically speaking.
Where I Find You released with chart topping street week numbers at No. 1 and No. 10 on Billboard's National Christian, Gospel and Top 200 Charts. Media praised the album from outlets like New York Times to Worship Leader.
In addition to ministering in churches, arenas, theaters, festivals and conferences across the globe, Kari has also found another outlet for sharing God's love in partnering with the A21 Campaign, an organization dedicated to abolishing human trafficking in the 21st century.
Along with her sister, Kris, Kari has created an exclusive line of jewelry and t-shirts where all the proceeds go to the cause of bringing an end to human trafficking and injustice.
"Whether I'm participating in an effort like this or leading worship, it's all about making a difference," Kari concludes. "That's the reason I'm doing what I'm doing at this specific moment—to see God's name lifted high, to encourage the hurt and the broken and to remind everyone to draw close to Him because He really, truly does care about each and every one of His children."
