The other day when I was reviewing for an album, and was wanting to quote some lyrics, it dawned on me that probably around 90% of songs that I have heard and been impacted by, are written my maybe 3 or 4 songwriters, maybe more. Does that mean something? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe songs written by just one person don’t really tug at my heart that much, or maybe I’m just not listening to those songs for whatever reason. But what also became clearer during last week, is that one of the types of songs that I immediately gravitate to are songs with guest vocalists (and in most instances, the guest vocalist is a songwriter on the particular song they are featured on as well!). A song by artist A with artist B (or artists B, C and D) singing as well. To hear multiple singers, have their own collaborative stamp on songs is intriguing, so, I guess in honour of my recent reviews of “Gotta Live” (Tedashii and Jordan Feliz) and “Legends” (LZ7 and Silento), here’s my latest top Tens post- 30 collaborative multi-artist songs that have been inspiring to me of late. Songs that tug at my soul and inspire me to live better. Check them out and let me know your favourite multi-artist song!

There’s a rumour out there that Christians are serious all the time! That we can’t have fun, that we, shudder to think, don’t want to have fun, even if we could. There’s also a misconception among those who are not Christians, that us Christians are boring, not interesting, and we choose to live a life of the mundane, out of duty only, and all because God told us to, not because we want to.

Another year, another post about “Top 10 CCM Songs Of The Summer”- and this time, instead of the last two instalments here and here, which we posted in July 2017 and July 2016 respectively, I’m going to ‘gaze into my crystal ball’ and have an educated guess about which songs that I reckon will be BIG over the next few months (both on CCM radio and inspirational in listeners’ lives!), and voice my opinions now- which songs do I reckon will explode and which songs do I reckon will have massive airplay on radio during the upcoming 3 months? Also, which songs do I reckon will worm their way into our hearts, and change our lives from the inside out?

The other day, I was writing my most recent blog of Flashback Fridays (about identity, self-worth and insecurities, linking it to MercyMe’s album Almost There), and while I was writing, I figured out that apart from one of the earlier Message Mondays posts last year about how God can use ‘mainstream music’ just as much as ‘Christian music’; I was in the midst of writing one of the most relevant, vulnerable, honest and inspirational blogs I had ever written. Yeah, I know that it’s a pretty big claim, but that’s what I was feeling and sensing from God at the time. That no matter how much time goes on, I will be always able to go back to this 10th blog in Flashback Fridays, and be inspired, no matter how I feel. Now to test that theory, I re-read this blog maybe about 5 times over in the span of the past few days, and I was still overwhelmed by the amount of rich truth I had revealed, that is so applicable now, and maybe will be so applicable later on in the future. More so than any other blog I have ever written, I was blown away by what I had written- it had to be God using me as a vessel, and His words through my fingers on the keyboard. I will ask the opinions of others close to me in the near future, about whether this was the most inspirational blog I have ever written, but I digress.
