Fueled with a passion to see people encounter the love of the Father, Cory Asbury is a songwriter, singer, speaker, author and worship leader. Cory began leading worship at his local church at age fourteen, and from there launched into full-time worship ministry at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City in 2005, until he joined the Bethel Music Collective in 2015.
Cory is known for his hit single “Reckless Love” inspired by Cory’s journey of discovering the Father’s heart through the birth of his first son and the near-loss of his first daughter. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2019 after winning two GMA Dove Awards and two K-Love Fan Awards in 2018.

In July of 2020, Cory released To Love A Fool with the hit single “Sparrows” and “The Father’s House”.
After seeing the impact of “Reckless Love” on listeners around the world, Cory released “Reckless Love” with Tori Kelly, as a remix in January 2020. Cory also published a devotional called Reckless Love that is full of personal stories behind the song.
