These songs that made it to my 2013’s top list. With their different genres, these songs would suit different music types depending on their preference and should be on your playlist

SETH & NIRVA

WHOLE WORLD

You have probably heard their voices but never knew who they were. Nirva and Seth Ready were both leading background vocalists for some of music’s top performers like TobyMac, Chris Tomlin and Donnie McClurkin, but now the husband and wife team are taking center stage in their own right. They have released a debut album “I Need You” and their first single “Whole World” is very catchy and inspiring. It will certainly get you nodding your head and your heart agreeing with the lyrics.

TY BELLO

JESUS JESU

TY is back again with another awesome song “Jesus Jesu (Sweetest Name)”. The heartfelt ballad is praise to how awesome and transforming the name of Jesus is.

LISA PAGE BROOKS

HEAL THE LAND

In her latest single, Lisa encourages us to pray for our land as God wants to heal the land. She delivers this message with her amazing vocals which is accompanied with the right blend of different background voices.

ERICA CAMPBELL

A LITTLE MORE JESUS

One half of the sister gospel duo Mary Mary dropped a single some months back and it is worth listening to. A little More Jesus has a country feel to it and Erica’s lovely vocals are clearly noticed throughout the song. The song makes us recognize how much we need Jesus in every part of our lives.

JAMIE GRACE

BEAUTIFUL DAY

A great song to start the day with as it makes you aware of the glory of God and his amazing grace. A love song to God that has a bit of everything in it.

ZACARDI CORTEZ

1 on 1

This song gets you in the mood to worship. Zacardi puts in the right emotions ti deliver the message. A song about having an alone time with God, just the both of you shutting out the rest of the world.

WILLIAM MCDOWELL

WITHHOLDING NOTHING

In his usual style, we hear him sing out to God about giving Him all and keeping nothing back. It’s a slow song whose message would cause one to reflect on the relationship one has with God.

TYE TRIBETT

IF HE DID BEFORE…

One’s feet can hardly stay still when listening to Tye. Delivering the gospel in a catchy but yet thought provoking manner is certainly a gift from God.

SKILLET

RISE

A rock fan, then this will do it for you.

Bonus songs…

Technically they are not new songs but they just never grow old.

HEATHER HEADLEY

SIMPLY REDEEMED

Strong vocals, amazing lyrics… how can one not be moved? Heather defines what being a Christian who has been redeemed by Christ simply means. Simply Redeemed is a slow song that would get you in the mood for worship.

MARTHA MUNIZZI

MAKE IT LOUD

Quite the party song, colorful with a lot of dancing – not Martha’s usual style but it worked. It’s a playful song that still glorifies God.
