'Silent Night' by Erica Violet - A Reverent Nostalgic Blend

With Christmas approaching, it's time to revive the tunes that tune our hearts to the reason for the season, unfolding tales of God's magnificent love and his incredible gift to mankind. Erica Violet's rendition of the much-loved 'Silent Night' is one such song to treasure this season, a melodious blend of traditional charm and contemporary freshness. Remember the hushed reverence of silent nights at church, when the soft glow of candles brought the beloved hymn to life? Erica does. She magically combines her childhood memories of candlelit Christmas Eve services with a modern sound, creating an experience that is as captivating as it is soothing. Silent Night's familiar lines, peppered with the rhythmic charm of a 6/8 beat, convey the tranquil peace and divine light of that first Christmas night.

'Go Tell It on the Mountain' is a timeless song that has been passed down through generations. It is a gentle invitation to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the world's Salvation, and has been covered by countless artists. Dave Pettigrew, a well-known worship leader and recording artist, gives a fresh take on this timeless hymn, wrapping it in the mellow tones of guitar and piano and harmonizing vocals that stir the soul.

Perry LaHaie's rendition of the ancient carol 'O Come O Come Emmanuel' is a touching reminder of our collective longing for the Messiah, not only for His first coming but also His second. LaHaie's rendition of this powerful song invites us to reflect on our desire for Jesus' second coming. A lament emerges from a sea of swirling melodies and poignant lyrics, echoing the cries of the prophets of old: 'How long, O Lord, till you bring justice to the earth, till you make all things right, till all the sad things come untrue?' It speaks to those of us who are overwhelmed by the world's suffering, transgressions, and injustices. We find comfort in a Father who hears, cares, and promises to heal all things when we surrender our feelings through lament.

'About a Baby' by Landon Stewart: Rediscovering the Heart of Christmas

When the season scatters snowflakes like confetti and heartwarming carols wrap homes in whimsical winter wonder, it's tempting to lose ourselves in the shimmering spectacle of Christmas. However, Landon Stewart wonderfully refocuses our gaze onto the true heart of Christmas in his song, 'About a Baby'.

'Take Me Back to Christmas' by Hannah Stott: A Beautiful Reminder of Christ-centered Celebrations

Take Me Back to Christmas' by Hannah Stott speaks strongly to my inner being. I feel whisked back to the true meaning of Christmas, to a time when tinsel, trees, and material gifts were mere background noise to the glorious event of Christ's birth. Her captivating song melodically unfolds the divine story, taking me back to that holy silent night when God's only son gracefully departed from His throne on high. She recalls 'when joy was a name, when hope was a KING,'  reminding us to rekindle that Christ-centered essence in our Christmases today. 'Take me back to...Emmanuel, God with us,'  she sings.

Nathan and Sharon - All Hail Immanuel (Christmas)

Nathan and Sharon have a new Christmas song for you. All Hail Immanuel is a joyful and celebratory Christmas song that announces the birth of Jesus, the long-awaited Messiah. The song tells the story of Jesus' birth in a stable in Bethlehem, and how this event was announced by the angels as a message of great joy and hope for the world. It repeats the phrase 'Hail Immanuel,' which means 'Hail God with us,' and celebrates the fact that God has become man and is present with us. The song also includes two bridges that reflect on the significance of Jesus' birth and the role He will play in the world. The first bridge invites all people to hear, see, and know about the birth of Jesus and the deliverance He brings. The second bridge introduces the concept of the Trinity, referring to Jesus as the Son, The Father as 'Everlasting Father,' and The Holy Spirit as 'Wonderful Counsellor' and 'Spirit of our God.'

Alan Cox - Memories of Christmas (Christmas)

Alan Cox is back with a new song! This time, he's bringing us Memories of Christmas. The song is an original Christmas single intended to evoke nostalgia and take listeners back to happier times spent with family when they were younger. Alan wrote this song in memory of his grandmother, who passed away several years ago. While the title refers to Christmas, the song does not have to be limited to this time of year. Alan is overjoyed to finally share this song with the world, and the response has been overwhelming! My favorite part of the lyrics is probably two lines in the chorus, because it also brings back precious memories of loved ones that have gone ahead of me: 'But of all the things I loved the most your smile laugh and way you spoke / And of all the things under the tree you were always good to me.' Check out his song / video to get a better sense of what Memories of Christmas means to Alan. You can listen to the track directly on Spotify:

Mama Tee (ft. Raphael Emeka) - שלום אלוהים עליך/Shalom Elohim Alaich (Peace Unto You) (Remix by Mama Tee) (Christmas)

Mama Tee (ft. Raphael Emeka) has released a Christian Christmas (CCM) track called 'שלום אלוהים עליך/Shalom Elohim Alaich (Peace Unto You) (Remix by Mama Tee)'. Mama Tee, a gospel singer and songwriter, performs together with Raphael Emeka a beautiful English and Hebrew version of her first Christmas song, Peace Unto You, a song which reminds us of the purpose of Christmas as stated in John 3:16-17. The song was remixed in Hebrew because the old testament was originally written in Hebrew. This project was a collaboration between recording artist Raphael Emeka and an Israeli team he had previously worked with on some of his previous releases. The old testament made numerous references to Christ's coming, and Mama Tee couldn't pass up the chance to have her song sung in one of the Bible's primary languages! Tolu wrote the original song, which was composed and produced by Emmanuel Awipi and sung by Rume (Raphael Emeka). Raphael Emeka and his wife Ikiomongha Opere tea
