Shakin' the House...Live! (1991)

Updated: May 11

Shakin' the House...Live! is a live album featuring Christian singer - songwriter Carman, Christian gospel group Commisioned and the Christ Church Choir. It was released in the spring of 1991 by Benson Records. The live album was recorded at the Christ Church in Nashville, Tennessee on January 25, 1991.

It features the artists coming together for a once-in-a-lifetime worship experience. Producer Dan Cleary wrote on the CD liner notes that "the crowd went absolutely wild. About halfway through the concert, one of the pastors came out and asked the crowd to sway side to side instead of jumping up and down, because the floor was literally 'shaken' with all the celebration." Carman performs his classic signature story song, "Sunday's On the Way" along with "Jesus Is the Light" and "I Got the Joy." Commissioned perform their songs, "So Good to Know (The Savior)," "I Am Here" and "If My People."

The Christ Church Choir performs "Pray for Peace" and "Let the Church Rise." All three artists perform two songs: "Celebrate Jesus" and "The Same God." Shakin' the House...Live! peaked at number 4 on the Top Christian Albums chart in Billboard magazine. In 1992, the live album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album.
