Although Phil Wickham is a worship leader with several previous album releases, I wasn't very familiar with his music. I've sung This is Amazing Grace with our church, but I didn't know it was a Phi Wickham song. I'm sure I've heard some of his other songs on the radio, and probably even sang along - but I didn't have any of his CDs until FlyBy Promotions offered me the chance to review his latest release, Children of God.
I enjoy music, but I'm not an expert at musical terms or genres. Personally, I found Children of God to be a wonderful album. I loved the meaningful and compelling lyrics. The music is beautiful and soothing, but with a driving beat that is catchy. It's perfect for listening to all day long - as you drive, while you work, and if you turn the volume down, even while you sleep.
I loved the Doxology remake, Stand in Awe, As It Is In Heaven, and Spirit of God. They are beautiful worship songs! I can just imagine singing them with my church congregation! There isn't a single song on the album that I don't like, but those are my favorites.
I completely recommend Phil Wickham's Children of God album! I'm not sure whether to call it contemporary christian, worship music, or what?? I think it's cross-generational, and if you enjoy the video I shared above, you'll love the entire CD!
You can purchase Children of God from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and other retailers.
