One way to keep our hearts focused on Jesus during this season is to include Christian Christmas music in our December music playlists. Three new releases from EMI artists–each of whom has won or been nominated for a Grammy® –can help you do just that.
Matthew West’s new CD, The Heart of Christmas, includes appearances by Vince Gill, Amy Grant, and Mandisa. Look for the holiday film of the same name to debut on the Gospel Music Channel based on West’s viral Christmas hit “One Last Christmas” about the true story of young cancer patient Dax Locke.
Toby Mac’s project, Christmas in DiverseCity is a mix of pop, rock, soul, hip-hop and urban flavors into irresistible songs with a distinctive Christmas spirit. The album also spotlights performances and songs from Toby’s long-time touring band, Diverse City and features the No. 1 radio hit “Christmas This Year.”
And of course, Oh For Joy from the David Crowder Band includes eight Christmas classics such as “Joy To The World,” “O Holy Night,” “Silent Night” and more, presented with the band’s distinct mark.
