DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:
MercyMe – Grace Got You: Not only one of the catchiest songs released this year but one of the best that MercyMe has ever released. MercyMe is on a victory lap of sorts right now, following the release of their big picture debut “I Can Only Imagine” and this track proves they just get better with each release. This is a really joy-filled song and will be stuck in your head for days.
Zach Williams – Fear is a Liar: One of those songs that grabs people no matter who they are and really hits you with a universal truth in a raw, emotional way. Even if you don’t struggle with fear issues, this song is just so beautifully written and performed that it’s hard to not be affected by it.
Hillsong Worship – Who You Say I Am: Full on Worship song from one of the best right now. These guys actually lead off WOW 2018 with What A Beautiful Name It Is and this song is every bit as awesome.
Cory Asbury – Reckless Love: Every year a song gets released that is picked up and covered by a multitude of popular artists. Think “Good, Good Father”, “No Longer Slaves” or “10,000 Reasons.” This year it’s Bethel’s Cory Asbury and this song. Another straight up Worship tune that is fantastic.
Chris Tomlin – Resurrection Power: Love them or don’t… if you don’t have Chris Tomlin and TobyMac on a WOW compilation, something’s not right. Somehow Tomlin keeps penning great songs like this.
Francesca Battistelli – The Breakup Song: WOW! This song is ri-donk-ulously good. Such a powerful message, cleverly written and the vocal performance, (even for Francesca) is out of the park here. Slam dunk.
Casting Crowns – God Of All My Days: When I mentioned Tomlin and TobyMac I should have included Crowns too. Stalwarts of the genre, they seem to come through again and again. Maybe it’s just me but since lead vocalist Mark Hall went through a tough health issue in the past couple of years, the music seems to be more earnest and spirit-filled than ever.
Crowder – All My Hope: The are two types of CCM fans. Those who like Crowder and those who LOVE Crowder. Featured here is one of this year’s breakout artists Tauren Wells who is all OVER the radio, featuring on others’ tracks and releasing his own hits. He’s on two tracks here so you know you can expect big things from him.
Mandisa – Bleed The Same: A much-needed message of unity and inclusiveness. With TobyMac and Kirk Franklin on the track, it’s just EXTRA bangin’.
Elevation Worship – Do It Again: The breakout in Worship this year, Elevation Church is really doing big things. They are pretty much the U.S. version of Hillsong at this point. Always coming out with amazing Worship music, this track is one of their best.
Matthew West – All In: One of the most talented songwriters and performers going, with a great song.
Natalie Grant – More Than Anything: One of the few tracks here I’m not yet familiar with. It’s a great song. I just need to spend some more time with it.
Bid Daddy Weave – Jesus I Believe: Big Daddy Weave have been through the wringer in the past couple of years and they just keep putting out modern-day classics like this.
Matt Maher – Your Love Defends Me: Favorite of Worship leaders everywhere. This song is a bit of a sleeper. You might not know Matt Maher’s name but you know a lot of his songs. This is a great example.
Revival – Third Day: Parting offering from Third Day. While it’s bittersweet to see them no longer together, they have given us SO MUCH amazing music over the years. Great way to go out.
Passion – Worthy Of Your Name: Another incredible Worship outfit and another amazing song from them.
Jeremy Camp – The Answer: Such a distinctive voice and writing style. He’s always at the top of his game.
Matt Redman – Gracefully Broken: Collaboration with Tasha Cobbs Leonard… I wasn’t sure which track this was until I listened to it and thought “Oh THAT song!” Really, really good. I’m wary of songs with ‘Broken’ in the title, but this is a keeper.
Pat Barrett – The Way: I originally heard this on the Housefires release. A lot like Reckless Love I think this will be a real breakout Worship tune, getting covered by lots of big artists.
I Am They – My Feet Are On The Rock – Amazing song! The harmonies and the vocals here are incredible. The energy is really uplifting and thrilling. Made me into a fan.
TobyMac – I Just Need You: Another TobyMac instant classic.
For King & Country – Joy: This one is still growing on me. For K&C fans, you will be singing right along.
Hillsong United – So Will I (100 Billion X): One of my favorite songs ever. SO good. So uplifting. So inspiring.
Lauren Daigle – O’ Lord: Strong new release from Lauren and this is one of the best tracks.
Tauren Wells – When We Pray: As mentioned, pretty much THE breakout artist this year and if you haven’t really listened to this song, sit and check it out. Hard hitting message. It’s a Worship song delivered in a compact, catchy, contemporary format.
Needtobreathe – Hard Love: Always love to see these guys show up here. One of their BEST songs ever. Can’t believe they just keep getting better and better.
Skillet – Lions: I’m not the hugest Skillet fan but this song is really great.
Tenth Avenue North – Control: This song has grown on me a lot.
Rend Collective – Counting Every Blessing: Ditto this song and band. It took a while for me to warm up to them but I do like this song a lot.
Mosaic MSC – Tremble: I had no idea what the name of this band was but I kept hearing this song and thinking “Wow.” Very powerful Worship song.
We Are Messengers – Point To You: Very distinctive vocal and writing style. I really enjoy their music and this is a very good example of their music.
Jordan Feliz – Witness: I keep thinking Jordan Feliz is going to break out to a bigger audience and this song will probably do it.
Riley Clemmons – Broken Prayers: Powerful voice. Powerful message.
Danny Gokey – The Comeback: If I was picking the tracks here I would have chosen “If You Ain’t In It.” To me, that’s the killer track on his last release. BUT, The Comeback is very, very good.
Hillsong Young & Free – Love Won’t Let Me Down: Gotta be honest… Y&F is not my usual fare. I prefer the other Hillsong groups but this is a great song.
Blanca – Real Love: WHOA. Just… WHOA. This is a hardcore message delivered with such soul and style that it blew me away the first time I heard it. #RealTalk. Tough love for sure but I agree with this message 100%. One of the best songs ever, ever.
Citizen Way – Bulletproof: I tend to forget about Citizen Way. (Sorry guys!) But that’s just my problem because they are so talented and have been doing this for a while now. A great offering from them.
Micah Tyler – Different: One of my favorites from last year. Kind of wishing Micah would tour with Zach Williams. I think the would be great together.
Sarah Reeves – Details: At first I was like “I don’t know this one.” but then I looked it up and I have heard this song a lot actually. It’s a beautiful song. Make sure you check it out.
