Anthony Evans | Yes I Will 2.0 

A Gospel recording artist whose music is informed by contemporary R&B, pop, and hip-hop as well as classic gospel, Anthony Evans is known for songs that merge a message of faith with a contemporary sound. Throughout a decade-and-a-half career of topping the Gospel charts, working on Grammy-winning projects, and even winning the ear of Christina Aguilera during his run on NBC’s The Voice, Evans has always maintained an unflinching authenticity in his creative pursuits. 
 

Jonathan Traylor | Medley

“I chose these two songs because their lyrics are powerful. For me, they aren't just songs; it’s a truth. I love Elevation Worship and Hillsong Worship. The power and truth in their songs inspired me. Christ gives us guaranteed victory. No matter how big the giant, no matter the obstacle, no matter the darkest night, we are guaranteed to see victory in Christ Jesus.”
 

Highlands Music | Thank You

Thank You is the latest single from Highlands Worship, the follow up to their last single “Heaven is My Home” and their latest full length release Jesus You Alone. This moving worship song brings a timeless and simple expression, "Thank you Jesus" into a dynamic and diverse musical setting.
 

Dante Bowe | joyful

"At a time when most of us have experienced change in nearly every area of our lives, some things remain constant. In his latest single, joyful, Dante Bowe reminds us that joy can certainly be one of them. Sweeping listeners into its gospel, R&B groove from the get-go, 'joyful' is a breath of fresh air at a time when we all need it. With lyrics that can’t help but put a skip in your step, Bowe declares the fact that all we have is today, the now, to make joy contagious."
 

Circuit Rider Music | I Will Praise

"'I Will Praise' started off as a spontaneous chorus while we were leading worship in Australia in 2017. This chorus rose as a declaration that reminded us that NOTHING can steal our praise. Nothing separates us from the love of God. NO circumstance, stronghold, pandemic, trial or hardship can steal our praise to Jesus. We are praying that this declaration brings people into a place of faith and praise to Jesus!”
 

Jonathan Traylor | See A Victory / What A Beautiful Name

“I chose these two songs because their lyrics are powerful. For me, they aren't just songs; it’s a truth. I love Elevation Worship and Hillsong Worship. The power and truth in their songs inspired me. Christ gives us guaranteed victory. No matter how big the giant, no matter the obstacle, no matter the darkest night, we are guaranteed to see victory in Christ Jesus.”
 

CeCe Winans | Believe For It

"Probably my favorite thing to do is worship in church, worship with my brothers and sisters. And to be able to create a record that people can do just that...especially for my first live record, I thought that would be an awesome way to do it and create songs people can just come together and worship on. I just believe it's going to be a blessing for people who hear it."
 

Influence Music | Glory, Honor, Power

"glory, honor, power is the first single off of our upcoming third album AGES. Delivered with Melody Noel’s fearless energy and Gilman’s soaring vocals, the song is a timely declaration of the glory, honor and power due to ‘the One who came and made a way.’ We pray that this song and album as a whole will reinvigorate your trust in the God of the AGES: the one who was and is and is to come!"

Behind The Song | Charity Gayle's “Thank You Jesus For The Blood”

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:13)

What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus. -- There is power, power wonder working power in the precious blood of the Lamb.—There, to my heart was the blood applied Glory to His Name.  When I was a young girl, I sang these words at the top of my lungs at my church. My Gammy played the B3, and my Dad would sing- My Mom and I sat on the very front row and I was taught from birth that worshiping God was a good thing. So I did, and I loved it. I loved God with my whole heart even at four years old, and though I didn’t fully comprehend the weight of the words I was singing, I believe the Lord delighted in it. It’s songs like those about the Blood that shaped who I am and my relationship with the Lord today. Songs full of truth and scripture and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The more life I live, the more I’m thankful for that precious blood of the Lamb. I’ve messed up and made plenty of mistakes but I am so thankful and grateful that Jesus bled, died, and rose again so that we may have eternal life with HIM, the Holy God, righteous and blameless even though we aren’t perfect. Being in relationship with God is such a precious gift.

So when we sat down and wrote Thank You Jesus for the Blood, we started by sharing what God has done for us and could truly say we were all lost but now we’re found and we just HAVE to thank Him for it. Our friend Steven began to play the keys and that reminiscent sound of the songs I sang as a child began to take shape in the song.

I invited my mother and two Italian aunties to help at this particular writer’s retreat, and as they were in the kitchen preparing an amazing meal for us, the music swept in and compelled them to join us in the room we were writing in. Tears ran down their faces as they heard ‘Thank You Jesus for the Blood’ come to life because they too were thankful for the blood that washed their sins away.

Just like the songs that have lived and continued to capture the hearts of multiple generations, our heartbeat as song writers is to pen lyric and melody that does the same.  I love how this song brought us all together in worship and thanksgiving. Unity in worship is the most beautiful thing and we can all relate to being sinners saved by grace.

- Charity Gayle

NEW Podcast Episode with Aodhan King (Hillsong Y&F)

Today we hear from Aodhan King of Hillsong Young & Free! He talks about how he loves the vehicle of song as a non-confrontational way to evangelize, the start of Young & Free, and how his worship and mission have always been intrinsically linked. 

He also speaks on their latest album All Of My Best Friends (Acoustic) — in particular "As I Am" and how it’s meant to express the inclusivity of God’s love. Young & Free is marked by a youthful and wild energy, but Aodhan reminds us that you don’t have to be young to connect with their music. All you need is a youthful spirit that God says we all have through Him.
