It has been two years since Chris Tomlin last released a CD and now he is back on the scene with Holy Roar.
Chris Tomlin has been writing music since the age of 14. He honed his skill on the guitar while listening to Willie Nelson songs. That early beginning was the start of a career that has spanned more than 20 years. Today, Tomlin is not only known as an accomplished guitar player and vocalist, but also a talented songwriter and worship leader. Along with selling “more than eight million albums and 11.3 million digital tracks with 16 #1 singles”, Tomlin has received several music awards that include an “American Music Award, three Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award and more“. He is also one of only four artists ever to receive the Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over one billion digital radio streams; the other three artists being Garth Brooks, Pitbull and Justin Timberlake. That may give you an idea of how his music has managed to not only touch people in the Christian community, but also has crossed into the mainstream sector.
Holy Roar is described as:
the freedom, the experience, the wonder of worship. It is seeing the church come together, hands lifted to God, pouring out our praise with an eternal song in our hearts. It’s every voice together, changing the way we worship.
The CD contains 12 tracks that stay true to what we always expect from Tomlin, which is music that causes us to raise our arms in worship to the Lord:
1. “Holy Roar”
2. “Nobody Loves Me Like You”
3. “Resurrection Power”
4. “Goodness, Love And Mercy”
7. “Praise Him Forever”
8. “Is He Worthy”
9. “Forever Young”
10. “I Stand in Awe”
11. “Praise Is The Highway”
12. “How Sweet It Is”
Some of the songs from Holy Roar that I really like are:
“Resurrection Power” and “Impact” are both songs you have probably heard played on the radio. They are great worship songs about the power of God.
I love the beat on “Satisfied”. This song will have worshippers bopping their head a bit while singing. Can we do that in church? Certainly!
“Is He Worthy?” and “I Stand in Awe” are characteristic Tomlin songs. These are the type of Tomlin songs that cause you to stand still right where you are, with your arms raised in private and personal prayer with God. This is happening all while you are in the midst of others doing the same (in church) or at home alone. “I Stand in Awe” and “How Sweet It Is” both touch my heart like Tomlin’s song “Good Good Father”.
The Holy Roar CD has songs you will enjoy listening to and singing along with, while driving in your car, as you are doing work around your home, and delight in hearing at your church during worship service.
Tomlin is all about bringing others together to worship and Holy Roar continues his ministry with praise and worship.
