Integrity Music Songs/Artists Recognized By Worship Leader Magazine’s “Top 20” List
With All Sons & Daughters Taking No. 1 Position
For over 20 years, Worship Leader magazine has been a trusted resource, providing insight, advice and recommendations for those involved in worship ministry. Most recently, the magazine announced its picks for the “Top 20 Worship Songs of 2013, So Far” with eight songs from Integrity Music worship leaders and ministry partners making the list, including All Sons & Daughters who took the No. 1 position with their new song “Great Are You Lord”.
Additionally, songs from Integrity’s Daniel Bashta, Darlene Zschech, Glenn Packiam, Martin Smith, Samuel Lane (Vineyard UK) and the London-based Worship Central were also chosen.
According to Worship Leader, the “Top 20” list was compiled from songs that have appeared on projects released since January of this year and that meet specific criteria. These criteria included whether or not the song was congregational in nature, lyrically fresh and if it has already begun impacting the Church.
Regarding the song choices, Worship Leader’s managing editor Jeremy Armstrong comments: “From our vantage point we are encouraged to see a bright direction in new worship songs: depth of theology blended with poetic freshness. The songs on this list are clearly intended to be the prayers of a community. The good news? They actually feel like prayers because of the biblical combination of beauty and understanding, integrity and authenticity… spirit and truth.”
The complete list of featured Integrity songs within the “Top 20” is as follows:
1 – “Great Are You Lord” from All Sons & Daughters’ Live CD/DVD
3 – “Praise The Invisible” from Daniel Bashta’s album The Invisible
4 – “The Cross Stands” from Worship Central’s album Let It Be Known
