New Music Report from Dan Close
Well, here we are… Christmas 2022! Whether it’s “Joy To The World,” “White Christmas,” “O Holy Night,” or any of the hundreds of Christmas songs out there, WIVH has you covered this month with great renditions of all the classic favorites, plus new Christmas music we’re loving, too!
Christian music veteran Phil Wickham has paired up with Dove Award New Artist of the Year winner Anne Wilson to bring us a great new Christmas song of worship entitled “Behold.” This powerful new song will get you focused on the Savior of the world who we celebrate this season–Jesus.
After her incredibly successful release earlier this year of “In Jesus Name (God of Possible)”, Katy Nichole is now entering the Christmas music arena with “O What A King.” This song is written from the perspective of Mary–chosen by God to bring Emmanuel, God with us, into the world to save us.
Two years ago, Zach Williams released a new version of “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” and I think it’s my favorite take on that song. This year, he’s done “Christmas Time Is Here” and, once again, it’s probably my favorite version. While it starts out in the traditional way with piano, it quickly transitions into an upbeat, soulful take on the A Charlie Brown Christmas classic.
You’ll be hearing these, plus great new Christmas songs from Jordan St. Cyr, Kingsporch, Matthew West, Jordan Feliz, Francesca Battistelli, and MORE as you listen in all December long on Your Voice Hope, WIVH!
Wishing you blessed Christmas season!
