Grammy Award-winner, and current double-nominee Chris Tomlin is releasing a deluxe version of his “Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship” today with two additional songs, “Gloria” penned by Tomlin, Tyler Hubbard, Dave Barnes and Corey Crowder; and “Emmanuel God With Us” featuring Anne Wilson, which was an Amazon original last year.
“Christmas is my favorite time of the year. … I love the traditions, Christmas lights, and most of all I love the music,” Tomlin said. “I have always found it interesting that this is the only holiday to have its own genre of music … and I think it is because Christmas started with a song, with the announcement of Jesus’ birth. I am so excited to be releasing ‘Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship Deluxe’ today.”
Tomlin’s catalog of full-length Christmas albums include: 2021’s “Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship,” 2015’s highly regarded “Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship,” and his Gold-certified “Glory In The Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship” from 2009.
Earlier this week Tomlin was nominated for two Grammys: Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for “Holy Forever” from his latest record “Always,” and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for “Always.”
In 2023, Tomlin will create an intimate concert setting as he travels across the U.S. on “The Stories Of Worship Tour.” In the unique concert experience, he will lead the attendees in what his team called an “impactful evening of worship, while sharing stories about some of the most influential songs around the world.” Tickets for the tour are on sale now at christomlin.com.
