“Abide With Me” is a lovely and appropriate for this Holy Week season, and few Christian singers have captured the reverence of the modern hymn as Matt Maher, who sings this beautiful worship gem.
Hillsong Young and Free has released the carrier single from its sophomore album, “Youth Revival.” Titled “Where You Are,” it follows in the same vein of its predecessor singles, combining worshipful lyrics with club beats to cater to a younger market of teen and young adult Christians who may find the group’s older sibling, UNITED, a little too hipster for their taste.
Contemporary Christian singer Lauren Daigle has released “Trust in You,” the latest single from her debut album, “How Can It Be.” It has zoomed into the Billboard Christian Songs Top 10 in just its second week of release.
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.
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 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.
Christian rock band 7eventh Time Down has released Promises off their latest album, Just Say Jesus. I LOVE THIS SONG. I think it’s absolutely fantastic! While I think that Just Say Jesus was great, and The One I’m Running To was even better, and the chart performance of these two songs is off the hook, […]
Contemporary Christian singer and songwriter Kari Jobe has released I Am Not Alone as the second single off her latest album, Majestic. After the success of the carrier single off this new release–Forever debuted and peaked at No.5 on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart–one would think that Kari would have a hard time following it up, […]
Contemporary Christian star Mandisa has released Press On as the third single off her Grammy Award-winning album, Overcomer. Typically, third singles are rare now in the Contemporary Christian genre, owing to higher promotional costs and whatnot, but the folks at Sparrow feel that there is still value in releasing Press On to radio, and I’m […]
Legendary Contemporary Christian vocal group Phillips, Craig, and Dean have returned with Jesus, Only Jesus, the carrier single of its thirteenth album, Above It All. Once again, Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig, and Dan Dean have infused their signature power-pop harmonies into a cherished worship anthem, this time Jesus Only Jesus, most popularly known for the […]
Contemporary Christian legend Steven Curtis Chapman has released Something Beautiful as the second single off his latest release, The Glorious Unfolding. After the decent performance of the first two singles, including a Top 10 finish for the carrier Love Take Me Over and a middling Top 20-ish finish, to my knowledge, for The Glorious Unfolding, […]
