Faithlife Music is your worship team’s connection point with the songs you sing. Browse the database of songs, connected by searchable themes and verses.
You can also enjoy popular videos of song performances embedded directly in the info for each song, discover links to lyrics, chord charts, sheet music, and loops, or add your own links.
Proclaim integrates with Faithlife Music to provide you with more information on the songs you love to sing. Connect to your church’s worship team to view and track your church’s songs, create arrangements, add chord charts and links to videos to help your musicians prepare. Then, add your songs to Proclaim and update the songs for your service without even opening Proclaim.
Note: Faithlife Music is a free, publicly-available service and does not require Faithlife Proclaim.
