Danny Gokey, “Hope in Front of Me”

Former American Idol finalist and country singer Danny Gokey has released his sophomore single, Hope in Front of Me, last February, and the single is now Top 10 on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart. The similarly titled album debuted last week at number one on the Christian Albums chart, which indicates that Christian radio is clearly open to Danny Gokey’s entrance into CCM. While Gokey’s country roots are still...

Michelle Williams f/ Beyonce & Kelly Rowland, “Say Yes”

Michelle Williams, formerly of 90s super girl group Destiny’s Child, has released Say Yes as the carrier single of her upcoming gospel release, Journey to Freedom, her fourth release and most highly anticipated, thanks in great part to the appearance of her former Destiny’s Child groupmates BeyoncĂ© Knowles-Carter and Kelly Rowland.

Selah, “You Amaze Us”

Contemporary Christian vocal trio Selah has released You Amaze Us, the carrier single of their new 2014 release of the same title, out later this year. You Amaze Us debuted at number one on Billboard’s Christian Soft AC/Inspo chart a few weeks ago, making Selah the first artist to ever debut at number one on that chart. Deservedly so! I admit I’ve liked Selah’s music for quite some time – in another lifetime, I...

Colton Dixon, “More of You”

While I like the lyrics of More of You, and the melody of the chorus is likeable, it didn’t...

Mandisa, “Back to You”

Contemporary Christian star Mandisa has released Back to You as the second single from her latest album, Overcomer. The title track spent ten weeks at number one, so Back to You has a lot to live up to. Its summery feel and irresistible bass line make it a prime candidate for Top 10 consideration, and AC seems to have warmed up enough to it. If Back to You makes the Top 10, Mandisa will become the first female artist to ever score two...

Jonathan Thulin, “Architecture”

Contemporary Christian singer and songwriter Jonathan Thulin recently topped Billboard’s Hot AC/CHR chart with Architecture, his second straight number one single, following Dead Come to Life last year. I hadn’t heard Architecture until recently, when one of the Saved Radio FM listeners requested, and boy, am I glad to hear this incredible track. Written while Thulin was in Sweden – he was at a low point in his life...
