Positive and Inspiring Christian Music.. Which Songs or Artists move you the most?
Change is GOOD for GOD!
The "Jesus Movement" of the 1970's was when things really started changing and Christian music began to become an industry within itself. Some of the pioneers were: Marsha Stevens, Larry Norman and The 2nd Chapter of Acts.
By the early 1980's the Jesus Movement was dying out and another group of artists were coming to the forefront. Rock and metal music, already popular in the secular industry, was finding a home in the world of Christ's music. Do you remember Petra and Stryper?
The 1990's saw the dawning of an even broader scope for Christ's music. Rock, rap, metal, urban gospel, contemporary country and pop were represented in a big way. The industry, which had previously been promoted by smaller, independent labels, stepped into the big time as larger, secular labels bought out many indies. Do you recognize: Steven Curtis Chapman, Third Day or Amy Grant?
21st CENTURY. We now have artists and bands that can keep pace with mainstream music. Some of the favorite artists of our day are: Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Sanctus Real, Chris Tomlin, JJ Heller, Matthew West, Jason Gray and MANY MORE!
"The battle is as old as time itself but the weapons have changed and the music has changed its face, as a shining example of just one of the many weapons in God's arsenal."
