It’s time to give away some CD’s. I have 5 copies of Chris Tomlin’s brand new Burning Lights CD, releasing January 8th, and I’m going to give them each away to five winners (WINNERS POSTED BELOW more on that in a minute).
Chris Tomlin delivers once again with this CD. My favorite is probably the first song, track 2, Awake My Soul, where he joins with Lecrae for a song that you’ll eventually hear sung in churches around the world. Tomlin’s music has that impact.
Tomlin has a way of putting God’s word to melody like no other. The first time I heard track 3, Whom Shall I Fear, I found myself worshipping along with song.
The whole album is good. My favorite might just be track 11, Thank You God, featuring Phil Wickham. It’s a sincere and honest prayer.
This is one you’ll definitely want to get!
So let me start you off by giving 5 people the CD. Here’s how we’ll do it: I’ll randomly chose 5 people who use the comment feature in this post and post two things:
- Your favorite Christian song that you’ve listened to in the last year.
- Your favorite secular song in the last year.
- My favorite Christian song I’ve listened to in the last year has probably been Gungor’s Beautiful Things (yes, this is a 2010 song, but I didn’t find it until early this year).
- My favorite secular song I’ve listened to in the last year is one I just talked about in our most current Youth Culture Window article about the top hits of 2012. That is Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye.
Your turn! Use the comment feature to post your two favs and I’ll choose the winner tomorrow, on the release date, January 8th at noon, Pacific time! I’ll Tweet the winner, then post it right here on this blog post.
WINNERS: Great list of songs posted. Thank you all for your submissions. I think Matt Redmond’s 10,000 Reasons was the overwhelming choice of Christian songs. And secular… maybe Call me Maybe. Here’s the 5 winners:
1. Josh Stitcher (Matt Redmond and The Script)
2. Dan Neighbors (Gungor and Coldplay)
3. Roger (Matt Redmond and Fun)
4. Kelly Sykes (Matt Redmond and Pink)
5. Julie Smith (who was brave enough to admit that Pay Phone was her favorite secular song! LOL)
