In this week’s rundown of five worship songs you need to hear, we feature a mix of pop-infused studio tracks (“Kaleidoscope,” “Your Love Awakens Me”), a tender singer-songwriter ballad (“As Sure As the Sun”), an energetic live performance (“Love Changes Everything”) and even an old favorite revisited by a young artist (“Holy, Holy, Holy”).
“Kaleidoscope” - Urban Rescue
In this instantly catchy jam, Urban Rescue creates a prayer set to music in one of the most infectious worship songs you’ll hear this week.
“Your Love Awakens Me” - Phil Wickham
Phil Wickham doesn't just write conventional “praise and worship” songs. Yes, he’s a great live performer, but his intricately crafted studio songs like “Your Love Awakens Me” are smart, pop-inspired gems that transcend genres.
“Holy, Holy, Holy” - Audrey Assad
From her brand new album Inheritance (which is now streaming on The Drop), “Holy, Holy, Holy” is Audrey Assad’s reimagining of one of contemporary worship’s most revered songs.
“Love Changes Everything” - Red Rocks Worship
Released this week, Red Rocks Worship’s live video for “Love Changes Everything” features a soulful declaration of the power of God’s love.
“As Sure As the Sun” - Ellie Holocomb
From her 2014 album As Sure as the Sun, the title track is a ballad of encouragement about God’s unchanging mercy.
