In past posts, I have introduced several resources for leading worship when you do not have live musicians available. Each option has different advantages and disadvantages (I will be doing a close comparison of all these products in December). iSingWorship is a virtual worship band app, like Worship Band-in-Hand, that runs on iPhone or iPad platforms.

In past weeks, I talked about LifeWayWorship.com and Worship Backing Band–two great resources for churches with few musicians or for those times you are only left with a few or no musicians. Today, I am sharing with you a third solution–Fly Worship. Fly Worship, like Worship Backing Band, is a solution that uses a multi-track player that allows you to individually set levels or mute various parts of the band. Additionally, Fly Worship has accompanying pedals that allow you to manipulate the music “on the fly,” such as repeat a chorus, fade certain or all instruments, move to the end before the song would otherwise be complete, and more. When selecting the right solution for your setting, realize that each of the three products has very different features and capabilities.

Today, I would like to share with you several resources from Worship Backing Band. a sister company to Musicademy, the leading provider of instructional resources for musicians involved in worship. In future posts, I will explore additional resources for churches that are struggling with providing worship leadership. Read more
