Cimorelli recently announced that their sophomore album Alive will be available to download and stream everywhere on May 5th, 2017. The record was originally released in December 2016 exclusively on PledgeMusic. The music video for the title track will also be released on the 5th. Alive is described as “a positive, uplifting collection of life songs and some worship songs.”
Leading up to the official release of the album, Cimorelli has created a six-part documentary, in which each sister tells a personal story behind one of the songs on Alive. These documentary videos are available to watch on the band’s Facebook page. So far, Katherine Cimorelli shared a personal story about heartbreak, and how it eventually inspired the song ‘Alive‘.

In addition to these videos, the band has started a movement called #IAmAlive. They encouraged fans who had already heard the album on PledgeMusic to tell their stories about how one of the songs on Alive has affected them. A quick scroll through the hashtag will reveal countless heartfelt videos and text posts from fans sharing personal stories about how messages in band’s songs helped them get through difficult times. Here are just a few posts from #IAmAlive:
