As a music lover, I always look for some music that has a rare rhythms that's good to my ear and has a deep meaning that can move your soul. I'm not really a christian since birth that's why back then, I really love listening to rock, metal, emo and screamo music that can bring you into the dark side of your heart. But when I first went to church and receive Jesus Christ as my savior, I begun to fall in love with the melody and rhythm of the christian songs. So in this post, I will introduce to you to some well know Christian artist that surely you will love even though your not a Christian.
Christopher Dwayne or also known as Chris Tomilin is an American Christian artist, worship leader and songwriter. He is originally from Grand Saline, Texas, United States.

Chris Tomilin is very a talented artist. His songs is so powerful that will really move your soul. According to some websites and blogs that I have read, his songs has a very big impact to churches not only on America but all over the world. His one of my favorite Christian Artist.
Here is one example of his song.
The title is "Sing, sing, sing". Listening to this song makes you really sing.
And here is another favorite song of mine sang by him.
This song is a very powerful song sang by Chris Tomilin and composed by an Irish band named Bluetree. The song was like a prayer for the nation asking God to protect it from any harm, to give them hope and another chance in building a new nation. I show this video to you all because I first heard this song in the minds of the horrible tragedy in Japan. That's why I always remember Japan whenever I listen to this song. And so, I dedicate this song to the country Japan and to the Philippines. I always ask the lord to guide, protect and blessed them always whenever I listen to this song. Though its specially dedicated to the two country, I also do apply this to other country such as America, Australia and others whenever I remember them. This is really a nice song.

The song was called "Nothing is impossible". The song is about believing and trusting Lord. That their is nothing impossible through our God.

I love this song very much. I always listen to it whenever I'm lost and don't know what to do. Try and listen to this song, it will really help you in your life.
Amazing grace was one of the oldest gospel song and one of my favorite. Its a little bit funny because, I just discovered it while watching So-Ra-No-Wo-To. Sometimes, anime can really give you a heavenly message that really comes from God. It has a very powerful meaning and great melody. It think every nations has a version of it.
Here is a good version by Christ Tomilin.
