God Is Alive is an unreleased track recorded in June, 1988, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, shortly before the European Lovesexy Tour. Prince worked on the track further on 27 July, 1988 at Olympic Studios, London, England, when Mavis Staples' vocal overdubs were recorded (a clip of this recording session was shown on the Prince - A Musical Portrait documentary).
The track was included as the tenth and final track on the 25 September, 1988 configuration of Graffiti Bridge, and the following month was included on the 27 October, 1988 configuration of Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic. It was also included as the seventh track on a late 1988 or early 1989 configuration of Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic, but the album was ultimately abandoned.
