Mitch Wong is joined by Hope Darst to joyfully declare the miracle that comes after the burial — Jesus Christ alive in us! “Burial” is an energetic Easter anthem that celebrates letting go of the old and becoming new creations in Christ. Mitch Wong, as a songwriter and an artist, is passionate about leading the Church back to the power of the Cross and the resurrection of Jesus.
“Working with Hope on this song was a dream come true,” he says. “During the years I was traveling to Nashville from Australia to write songs I would always visit The Belonging Co and was deeply ministered to and impacted by the way she leads worship with purity and authority. Now that we are good friends, it made it extra special to sing ‘Burial’ with her!”
The feeling was mutual as Darst shared her excitement to partner with Wong, “one of the greatest songwriters of our generation,” she said. “To follow Christ means that we must die, like Jesus, in order to live, and ‘Burial’ tells this truth so beautifully,” she adds.
The new version of ‘Burial’ offers a beautiful and harmonious rendition of a timely song for the Church to sing and meditate on at this time.
Mitch Wong is an Australian-born GRAMMY® award-winning songwriter and worship leader residing in Nashville with his wife, Steph.
He began writing songs as a teenager and quickly developed an obsession for it, captivated by the miracle of how atmospheres can shift, lives can change, and faith can break out at the sound of music, melody, and a message. It’s a mystery that he hasn’t fully figured out and hopes he never will. With this in mind, Mitch is passionate about making music that moves the heart of God and ministers to the Church. His sound ranges from energetic praise to intimate, psalm-like worship, all created with the intent of drawing people to Jesus.
To this day, he is incredibly humbled by and grateful for the opportunities he has had to write songs and sing them, whether in crowded rooms or alone with the Lord. He has collaborated with some of today’s most influential Christian worship leaders, such as CeCe Winans, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman and Brooke Ligertwood.
