Fresh off the success of “Cast My Cares,” Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Tim Timmons has released the decidedly pop/rock “Awake Our Souls,” a feel-good toe-tapping romp that is both encouraging and convicting.
Rend Collective has released the effervescent “Joy of the Lord,” a truly enjoyable pop/rock romp that combines Irish folk inclinations with Scripture to produce an delightful praise anthem, one of my favorite tracks so far this 2016.
Passion & Kristian Stanfill’s new single, “Salvation’s Tide,” offers up a tidal wave of worship, declaring victory upon victory in the name of Jesus. With its anthemic call to worship & underlying themes of revival, hope, and church unity, it stands to be one of Passion’s best singles yet.
Contemporary Christian pop/rock band Audio Adrenaline has released the title track from their newest release, “Sound of the Saints.” Christian AC hadn’t warmed up to carrier single “Love is Stronger,” but I am feeling very strongly about the chances of this great new single.
7eventh Time Down has released “God is on the Move” as their latest single and the follow-up to the Top 25 hit, “Promises.” I’ve been very vocal about liking “Promises”; I hope Christian AC will be more accepting of “God is On the Move,” with its message of hope and trust in a God Who is working things out for the good of those who love Him.
Gateway Worship has released “Grace That Won’t Get Go,” off its latest album, “Walls,” led by established worship leader–and former 4Him vocalist–Mark Harris, who does a masterful job with this future worship anthem.
Whether you’re the passionate Christian who gladly prays for anyone, or someone who has a history of promising to pray for a friend but forgetting to do it, “The Power of a Prayer Warrior” will encourage and inspire you to pray for yourself and others like never before!
Contemporary Christian pop/rock band We Are Messengers has released its debut Word Entertainment single, “Everything Comes Alive,” a rollicking pop anthem with an irresistible “Whoo hoo!” singalong hook that will stick to your brain and refuse to let go.
Contemporary Christian pop/rock band Hawk Nelson has released “Diamonds,” the follow-up to its Top 10 smash, “Drops in the Ocean.” It is is quite the radio-friendly pop gem, using a very catchy chorus and an inspirational message of how God “make diamonds out of us.”
Philippine worship team Victory Worship has released another single to Christian AC. “Reign Forever” features Cathy Go, the vocalist behind the group’s massive debut single, “Radical Love.” It is a soaring worship anthem with an unforgettable chorus and a powerful bridge. I think it’s a brilliant song.
Contemporary Christian singer Holly Marie Miller, better known as Hollyn, has scored her fourth straight week at No.1 on Billboard’s Christian Hot AC/CHR National Airplay chart with “Alone,” featuring Christian rapper TRU.
Contemporary Christian singer Danny Gokey has released “Mary Did You Know” as the carrier single of his new Christmas project, “Christmas is Here.” The eighth season third placer of “American Idol” has found success as a Contemporary Christian singer, and with Mark Lowry & Buddy Greene’s “Mary Did You Know,” is set to win more hearts in the Christian genre.
Here are the Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, as of December 5, 2015. The big news here is the No.1 debut of “Great is Thy Faithfulness” by “The Voice” Season 9 contestant Jordan Smith. Smith’s chart achievement pushes Hillsong UNITED’s “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” to No.2 and delays the radio smash of a 59th week on top of the chart.
