Download Our Theme Music

Oh How Good” is an original song by Delonte Gholston (also the featured singer!), recorded on the Revere|Restore album. Emanating from the Brehm New Music Initiative, Revere|Restore was written, performed, and produced by students and alumni of Fuller Theological Seminary. The creative grid for this album includes the use of primarily corporate and vertical lyrics, representation of multiple Fuller communities, themes related to spiritual formation curriculum, and wide musical stylistic diversity.
