Pentatonix ~ Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
The first single from We Need a Little Christmas isn’t a Christmas song (although it does have snow in it!). This new Pentatonix track went straight to #1 on the day of release ~ Chris Tomlin must be over the moon!
Brandon Lake feat. Bethel Music ~ Gratitude
One of many highlights on Brandon Lake’s House of Miracles, this tender ballad will remind many of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” The track is filled with humility and praise.
Elevation Rhythm ~ Quiet (Acoustic Version)
The popular radio version is a dance track, but this stripped-down version has a different sort of power that amplifies its message of listening. It also demonstrates the impact of a simple, beautiful video.
I AM THEY ~ Faithful God
The new single from I AM THEY is based on Hebrews 10:23: “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” The widescreen video is an instant favorite, based on a simple yet effective premise.
Casting Crowns ~ Start Right Here
The latest single from Casting Crowns is accompanied by a powerful video that amplifies the message from 2 Chronicles 7:14. The song begins with an indictment of the modern church, and challenges Christians to be active in their own communities:
to start right here.
