New From Chris Tomlin: Holy Roar {An Album Review + Giveaway} #HolyRoar #FlyB

How Great Is Our God.
Holy Is The Lord.
Your Grace Is Enough.

If you have been listening to Christian music for very long at all, chances are you can quickly name a Chris Tomlin song or two. Since the early 2000s he has been a staple on Christian radio! And for good reason... the music is fantastic! He has been a favorite for many years. His songs have such a way of putting into words the thoughts that I cannot express...perhaps that is why I have used many of his songs in my own Bible journaling.

Chris Tomlin is one of the most heralded singer-songwriters in the world who has amassed an impressive body of work. He has sold more than 8 million albums, 11.3 million digital tracks with 16 #1 singles. Chris is one of only four artists ever to receive the Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 Billion digital radio streams, others include Justin Timberlake, Pitbull and Garth Brooks. 

The Grammy® winner’s list of music awards include an American Music Award, 3 Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award and more. Chris’ concert tours have sold-out venues in major cities including New York City’s Madison Square Garden, The Forum in Los Angeles, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Red Rocks in Denver, among others. This spring, Chris marked another career milestone by launching his own imprint record label, Bowyer & Bow, in partnership with Capitol Christian Music Group.

And now, I'm happy to announce that his all new album is available to purchase, check out 'Holy Roar'.

Songs include:

  • Holy Roar
  • Nobody Loves Me Like You
  • Resurrection Power
  • Goodness, Love And Mercy
  • Satisfied
  • Impact
  • Praise Him Forever
  • Is He Worthy?
  • Forever Young
  • I Stand In Awe (Feat. Nicole Serrano)
  • Praise Is The Highway
  • How Sweet It Is (Feat. Pat Barrett)

With such an impressive body of work behind him, needless to say, I've come to expect a lot from each album. This one certainly did not disappoint! Each song was absolutely beautiful, perfect for taking the time out of my day--- whatever I might be doing, and singing praises to God.

My favorite song on the album was definitely 'Resurrection Power':

Now I have resurrection powerLiving on the insideJesus, You have given us freedomNo longer bound by sin and darknessLiving in the light of Your goodnessYou have given us freedom

Freedom. No longer bound by sin and darkness. I think as Christians, we all know this message very well...but I don't about you, sometimes I need to hear those words. Over and over again. This song is a great way to do just that.

The title song of the album is amazing too... and truly speaks to the album as a whole.

We are here to lift You upHere to sing a song of loveHere to give You, GodWhat You are worthy of
A holy roarReaching for HeavenOur praise poured outWith a reckless abandonOur worship, GodIs wholly Yours

What a beautifully sentiment that is! Lifting our voices up. Singing his praises. Laying it all out in worship. Oh what a sound that must be to Him, to hear our voices lifted TOGETHER. I think about the worship experience at church when I hear these words- my personal favorite part of the service. It doesn't matter who can sing and who cannot... that's not what matters. It's that we don't let that fear of what others might say about our voices keep us from singing it out anyway... that's when true worship happens. A holy roar. What a beautiful portrayal.
