Let’s Make a Holy Roar with Chris Tomlin
I recently heard about the Holy Roar CD by Chris Tomlin from FlyByPromotions. Any time I hear of something new coming out from Chris, I’m wanting to go line up to buy it. His music and lyrics are amazing, and he makes you feel that you are a part of the studio or concert while you’re listening. It’s amazing to think of how many lives that he has touched and shown of God’s glory through that!
The new Holy Roar CD is coming out after the book authored by Chris Tomlin and Darren Whitehead came out, which shares a fresh perspective from the worship practices of the ancient world. It’s helps you to grow in your understanding of praise as Darren offers unique insights on the subject. Being able to read the book and then listen to the CD makes you think of each song just a bit differently.
Like we are taught at church, worship is part of learning, and of growth. Giving that time of worship to God, letting Him know that we are thankful, and need Him, is just as important as the words of the Bible. Chris Tomlin does a great job, in coming out with songs that mean just that – worship to our heavenly Father!
Here’s the video from Chris announcing the CD:
I think every song was a great one…Resurrection Power is my favorite right now, but that might change when I listen to the CD again! His music has a way of making every song a fave, and they are timeless. I cannot wait to hear our worship team do some of them at church in the future!! Be sure to check it out for yourself. Let me know in the comments, if you have heard any of the songs, or what you think of the review. Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the CD as much as I did!
About The CD:
As the songwriter behind the worship favorites ‘How Great Is Our God,’ ‘Our God,’ and ‘Whom Shall I Fear,’ Chris Tomlin’s songs have been a large part of the collective voice from the church for years. Holy Roar is a response to that collective voice. Featuring ‘Resurrection Power’ and the new single ‘Nobody Loves Me Like You,’ this brand-new album has songs written specifically for the church that run the spectrum of worship from personal reflections to shouts of praise.
Coming alongside Holy Roar is the re-release of the book of the same name, co-written by Tomlin and Darren Whitehead, pastor of Church of the City in Franklin, TN. The concept of HOLY ROAR is about: 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!

About The Artist:
With ten albums, 13 No. 1 radio singles, a GRAMMY® Award and eight additional nominations, three Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, a platinum and four gold albums to his credit, Chris Tomlin is among the most well-known and influential artists in contemporary Christian music.
Referred to by TIME Magazine as “most likely the most often sung artist anywhere,” Tomlin consistently has several songs in the top 20 of the Top 100 CCLI songs. BMI and GMA Dove Awards’ 2014 Songwriter of the Year, Tomlin’s “How Great Is Our God” was his first No. 1 on the CCLI Top 25, becoming one of the fasting rising modern day hymns in CCLI chart history.
In addition to having sold more than 7 million albums and over 8.9 million digital tracks, Tomlin made history as his No. 1 single “Jesus Messiah” (Hello Love) garnered 97 adds at radio, making it the biggest ever add date in Christian radio history, and recently tied the record for most top tens in the history of Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart as his current hit, “At the Cross (Love Ran Red)” broke into the top ten.
In the midst of his record-breaking success, Tomlin continues touring and leading at Passion Conference gatherings across the US and worldwide, including his recent Worship Night In America events, which sold out NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Denver’s Red Rock’s and Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena. Burning Lights debuted at No. 1 atop the Billboard 200 in January 2013, making history as only the fourth Christian music album to do so, and his tenth recording, Love Ran Red is available now. ADORE: Christmas Songs of Worship will debut during the 2015 Christmas season.
