Chris Tomlin Has Done It Again

If you have attended a church service in the last year or listened to Christian radio, chances are really high that you’ve sung one of Chris Tomlin’s songs. How Great Is Our God, Forever, Jesus Messiah, God of this City, I Will Rise. Ring a bell? Here are some of his accomplishments Six records…nine No. 1 radio singles…three GRAMMY nominations…16 Dove Awards…a platinum and two gold albums to his credit. Time Magazine referred to Tomlin as most likely “the most often sung artist anywhere,” as it is estimated that over 40 million people sing his songs in church each week.  He has sold more than 3.1 million albums and over 3.7 million digital tracks. So, I guess you could say that in the Christian music world, he’s kind of a big deal. But I am pretty certain he doesn’t feel that way about himself. He’s a worshiper of Jesus, plain and simple. And the boy has a gift. The good news for you and me is that God just keeps putting amazing lyrics in his mind and soul and we keep getting great, new songs to sing praises to our God. Tomorrow, November 16th is the day that his latest album will be released: And If Our God Is For Us... album cover I have had the opportunity to listen to it ahead of time and I can promise you that you won’t be disappointed. Run on out and get the CD tomorrow or download it from iTunes for your mobile device. And do have yourselves a lovely day!
