Brant Hansen Downton Abbey Recap

"Don't want to watch 'Downton Abbey' because it's too long, or you just don't like it? NO PROBLEM. I made this awesome 1-minute recap on my iPad. It captures all the drama, but leaves you with free time to do other stuff. You're welcome."

Chris Tomlin: The Story Behind "Whom Shall I Fear"

Critics and Fans are LOVING 

Grammy Winner Chris Tomlin's

 New Album

 "Burning Lights"

out this week!

Chris Tomlin is receiving all kinds of love from media including The New York Times, USA Today and Billboard.


"Over the last decade Mr. Tomlin has become one of the most notable figures in Christian rock… Even when he is not around, his songs sustain him. Burning Lights is ... heavy on broad, anthemic choruses; and straightforward praise. It is a skill ... to write music this free of ego. Mr. Tomlin has a modest voice, full of yearning, but it’s not his voice that’s important. It serves only as a contour for others to follow, with a modesty that invites people in."

— The New York Times


The album has claimed the No. 1 spot on the iTunes® Christian & Gospel Albums Chart and No. 2 position on the iTunes® Overall Albums Chart. SWEET!



Lyric Video: "Whom Shall I Fear"

Hawk Nelson Shares Story Behind Words

Hawk Nelson's new song, ''Words," featuring Bart from MercyMe, is meant to emphasize the importance of thinking before you speak.

"'Words' really speaks to the heart of what God's been teaching us as a band over the past few months. The words we speak are a powerful testament to who we are and how we influence those around us. We truly have the power to either speak life into others or break them down depending on the choices we make," explains lead singer Jonathan Steingard. "It's been our prayer as a band to say to God that we want to be His light… that we want to speak His love into people's lives every day. Whether that means being on stage and playing shows, or whether that's with our wives, families, or friends, we just want to be really intentional about speaking life into people."
