Chris Tomlin ft. Florida Georgia Line ~ Thank You, Lord
What’s this, a new Chris Tomlin album featuring collaborations with friends such as Florida Georgia Line and Lady A? Yes, that’s right! We expect this to be the feel-good album of the summer, and it all starts here! (Release date: July 31.)
Hillsong Worship with Tasha Cobbs Leonard ~ Awake My Soul
The latest Hillsong production is a collaboration with soulful singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard, and features the lyric, “It’s time to worship him!” The video is super-colorful and fun!
Wilder ~ Heaven’s Secrets
Brand new worship band Wilder just released their self-titled album, and “Heaven’s Secrets” is the first single. The song tells us that one day everything will be revealed, and ends in a surprise a cappella version of a famous hymn.
Cochren & Co. ~ One Day
One of the best songs for the current moment, “One Day” promises that one day there will be no illness, no racism, and no more tears, because God will replace all our pain with healing grace. The song was released as a single last fall but has struck a chord in recent weeks as people have discovered its message of hope.
Steven Curtis Chapman feat. Brad Paisley, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, and Lauren Alaina ~
Together (We’ll Get Through This)
This superstar matchup borrows a line from a Diana Ross song while striking a note of unity.
“There’s no mountain too high, no valley too low!”
Bethel Music feat. Jonathan David and Melissa Helser ~ Better Than
Bethel Music’s new double album, Revival’s in the Air, has been igniting worshippers worldwide.
This highlight speaks of the beautiful future that God has in store!
Tasha Layton ~ Into the Sea
This beautiful song is based on Psalm 46 (“Therefore we will not fear …”), and Tasha’s acoustic version is prefaced by a wonderful testimony about being a parent in a time of crisis.
for KING & COUNTRY feat. Kirk Franklin and Tori Kelly ~ Together
The recent crisis has been the inspiration for a new wave of encouraging songs, many of them collaborations. The latest song from for KING & COUNTRY and friends blends pop and soul and reminds us that we will make it through together.
Thomas Rhett featuring Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban ~ Be a Light
This benefit song bears a simple message but practices what it preaches, with all proceeds going to COVID relief funds. It’s a great example of the shared values of Christian and country music, and it went straight to #1 on release, making it the second Christian song to do so in three weeks!
Cody Carnes, Keri Jobe and Elevation Worship ~ The Blessing
We may have found THE song of our moment. These Christian artists got together in early March to record this song, which debuted at #1 on the day of release ~ not just on the Christian chart, but on the overall chart. This is America’s #1 song at the time when we need it the most. Thank you, Jesus!
