I'm in love with @versesproject. Multiple musicians and artists have come together to create word-for-word musical settings and visual representations of verses in the Bible. Over 244 verses, 237 songs, and 185 visual pieces, I recommend starting with @joellimpic setting of #Psalm 1:1-3. I added it to the Common Narrative playlist in Spotify.
Grammy nominated Travis Greene's song, Made A Way, is a #Gospel - #CCM #fusion in more ways than one. It starts with a simple, singable, guitar-led melody, but slowly adds Gospel music elements like call and response choirs, thick harmonies, borrowed chords, and multiple bridges. Written from personal experience, it focuses on the grace and power of God's work in our lives.
I heard You Deserve It from a friend in the CCO. Besides the fact that it fits well into both #Gospel and #CCMstyles easily, I appreciate the clear focus on God, and not us.
Break Every Chain reflects on the power of Christ's #resurrection to free us from oppression, sin, and shame. Best used paired with #worship songs and scripture that give more context to themes of #freedom and #justice. SWIPE to see how it fits in your context.
