BOTB Results: Revelation Song


At the start of the battle for Revelation Song, Kari Jobe came out strong and then The Newsboys pulled up from behind and this was anything but a landslide. Final score:  Newsboys 9, Kari Jobe 10.

Lord, It's the Battle of the Bands: Revelation Song

Can we give it up for the big man? No, not Stephen T. McCarthy, though they are comrades, but the BIG BIG man? Why the puzzled look? Okay, to be clear, STMcC is my brudder, but I'm talking about the MAN himself: the Lord, God, Almighty. Turns out, there's more than a few amazing musicians turning out some great tune-age for you-know-who. Let's do a special edition, our second "Lord, It's the Battle of the Bands"...but first, a word from our sponsor:  

This music blogging event was first introduced by our friends, Fae and Stephen, and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":

Our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th.  The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. That's when I return, total all of the votes, maybe even mine (and it CAN happen - did you check out last battle?), and announce the winner. 

First up, let's hear from a few guys who have been around the block, Christian music-wise: The Newsboys.  Lead singer Michael Tait came to the group by way of DC Talk. Jesus Freak, anyone? Remember that song? A fellow by the name of TobyMac as a former bandmate, too. But the group traces its roots back to 1985 when they formed "down under" in Australia.

The Battle of the Bands: Simple Joys


This music blogging event was first introduced by our friends, Fae and Stephen, and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":

Hey, it's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog. Hmmm. That sounds so familiar. While I try to get this online TECHNICALLY on the first, however late in the day, I have a hankering to go Broadway with this battle. Whaddaya think o' that?
