For close to two decades, singer-songwriter Israel Houghton has managed to keep much of his personal life out of the spotlight, but that's all about to change.


The four-time Grammy Award winner is giving the world a glimpse of what goes on behind-the-scenes with an upcoming one-night cinematic event called "Israel Houghton & NewBreed – Covered: Alive in Asia."


"I did what I've always been kind of reluctant to do and that is to turn cameras on and open up my life a little bit more to people. I feel like when I get on stage, I want to really open up a way to God for people as opposed to having them look at me," Houghton told The Christian Post. "It was a challenge for me because I do maintain my privacy a little bit as it relates to my life and my life off the stage."


The concert event coming to movie theaters next year is a music documentary that will allow audiences to witness what worshipping God looks like in Asia where his Christian band, Israel & NewBreed, toured sold-out stadiums in Jakarta, Indonesia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Seoul, South Korea; Tokyo, Japan and Manila, Philippines. On the heels of the summer release of the group's album, "Covered: Alive in Asia," which was released last summer, Houghton said it was important to give people something more than just a typical record.
