Christmas is right around the corner and songs, carols and bells fill the air as people get into the Christmas spirit. The Christian Post caught up with one of the biggest worship leaders of our time, Chris Tomlin, and discussed his album Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship.
Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship is Tomlin's second Christmas album and it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Holiday Albums chart. "I love Christmas music!" he told CP.
CNN previously estimated that 30 million people sing his worship songs each week and Tomlin said writing Christmas music is different than what he is use to doing because he had to focus on writing about one specific time in Christian history.
"I find [it] very exciting because there are so many things to write about. You think 'that'll be very limiting' but actually more songs flowed for me this time than ever," he admitted.
Although many of his colleagues in Christian music go to great lengths to make grandiose Christmas music productions with horns and whistles, what is unique and refreshing about Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship is the timeless feeling each song has. The song "Adore" can easily be played right before "How Great is our God" in a concert anytime rather than only at Christmas season.
