At the beginning of May, I decided to create a playlist on my YouTube channel for the all of the new songs I’ve found that month. I decided to do this because my Christian music playlist has over 600 songs and is ever growing as I continue to find new music for me and others to listen to. I thought this would give me time to listen to these new songs, decide on favorites, and continually have new things to praise the Lord with.
My aim for sharing the new music I find is to just get more word out about the amazing talent, worship, and songs of Christians that are out there. But more importantly, to encourage people to draw closer to God through worship and prayer. Christian music provides so many opportunities to do just this.
This month was heavily centered on Christian Rock, including Christian Hard Rock. But that is mainly seen between the two Christian Rock bands We As Human and Manafest. Throughout this past month, my Song Sundays have been focused on Christian Rock, I wanted to make sure I was finding a handful of that genre. But I’d still say there is a decent amount between Christian Rock and Contemporary in this month’s list.
Message Of Confidence– Amidst the amazing praise many of these songs give to God. So many of them reinforce how we need to trust Him despite trial and setback. More Than Anything, Confidence, House Of Cards, Do It Again, You Can, Broken People, Strength Of My Life, Yes I Will, Over All I Know and others. I know “confidence” has been a word I have been given this month, and I needed it.
Now let’s get to the music 🙂
New Bands/Artists – Bright City, Landry Cantrell, Here Be Lions and Vertical Worship were all new bands/singers I discovered this month. Most of them are more contemporary. But Landry’s song is more Christian Pop.
One More Artist... so I did find another artist but since I found his music the last week of June, his songs will appear next month. But I did find the music of Jonathan Thulin, and wow, his music is awesome!!
