Recorded Live at the Hammersmith Apollo, London in 2012. Muyiwa’s song ‘Hey Ya’ was born from the 100 year Azusa street celebrations in Los Angeles California in 2006.
When asked the story behind ‘Hey Ya’. Muyiwa had this to say…. ‘I was in LA broadcasting from the 100 year celebration of Azusa street, while there it had all the leading names from around the world from EA Adeboye to Brian Houston from Hillsongs, also had diff Christians from diff parts of the world and different streams. One of the days I walked into a room and I could hear was ‘Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya’ and it was American Indians all dressed up as they would in American western and they were chanting Hey Ya Ya saying these things about Jehovah and then responding with ‘Hey Ya Ya’, then I said to myself I am going to take this back to London, write a song about it and say things about God ‘Who is he that gave His life so you and I can be set free? Jesus Christ the son of God, He’s the King of kings and Lord of lords and end it with Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya, Hey Ya Ya hey OOH’
