How to become a lyrics curator - Christian lyrics on Spotify / Apple Music / etc.

Have you ever wondered how the lyrics appear in the songs on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Shazam, etc.?

Become part of the largest catalog 
of music data on the planet,
by joining a family of music lovers

The largest catalog of lyrics ever has Christian lyrics contributed by Christians from around the world. Isn't that awesome? 

Musixmatch is the portal for getting lyrics published on several streaming services. You don't need us to join Musixmatch... but we have a dedicated workspace with like-minded contributors / curators that understand the jargon, spelling rules, etc. associated with Christian music. 

Here is what we have to offer: 

  • Access to a (new) community of music lovers that share the passion to transcribe & share Christian lyrics
  • Community members guide / mentor each other in a manner that one may expect in any Christian community (always based on constructive feedback)
  • If you'd like more permissions / functionalities / paid activities, we will coach you to become a Certified Curator
  • Certified curators also have the possibility to work directly with Christian artists who ask us for assistance with publishing / managing their lyrics (this includes publishing lyrics on their behalf, as a verified artist)

Christian music is not only our passion, but we also aim to make the Christian music genre easier to explore and listen to. It is our prayer that God's message of comfort and hope will reach even more hearts as a result of this ministry.

Our passion drives us to curate a large number of frequently updated playlists on Spotify, Deezer, and YouTube. In addition, it motivates us to devote so much time to collecting and transcribing lyrics, as well as publishing them online.

We invite you to join our community of Christian music lovers.

Brandon Lake - Praise You Anywhere (CCM)

'Praise You Anywhere' by Brandon Lake is a powerful anthem that encourages us to turn to praise in every season of life. No matter the circumstances we face, choosing to praise God will shift our perspective and ignite faith within us. The lyrics of the song remind us that in the midst of darkness, fire, and challenges, we can dance, sing, and praise God. We are called to worship even when it doesn't make sense and to boldly face the giants that stand before us. The song emphasizes the power of praising God in the highest, acknowledging His worthiness of all our praise.

Sarah Kroger, Nathan Jess - Belovedness - Live (CCM)

Are you tired of feeling inadequate and alone in your struggles? Have a look at Sarah Kroger's 'Belovedness,' a powerful ballad that reminds us of our worth as children of God. Initially released on Kroger's sophomore album, 'Light,' during the peak of a global healthcare crisis, 'Belovedness' quickly found a following among those battling mental health challenges.

The lyrics remind us to let go of our past mistakes and the lies we've been told, and to embrace the truth of our belovedness.
