Houghton's unique style included performance on the keyboard ushering the crowd into an intimate worship experience, performance on the electric guitar bringing in the jazz/rock feel and lastly Houghton on the mic encouraging the crowd gospel style to believe God for big things and ushering the crowd into exuberant praise and dance-- gospel style. "The atmosphere of expectation is the breeding ground for miracles," he encouraged attendees as he sang the scriptural reference from Ezekiel, "Live"and encouraged the crowd to expect and encourage one another that a miracle is not far away. Houghton performed a wide array of songs including his famous, "Friend of God" and others.
Houghton also granted UNITE an exclusive interview back stage after the event, portions of the interview will be published in future posts. Houghton told me, "The key to longevity is humility" and explained that the Grammy and Dove awards that he has won are awards that he lays at the feet of Jesus.
