Singing Contractors
Working on a Building
Gaither, 2019

Real-life contractors Josh Arnett and Aaron Gray became YouTube sensations with renditions of “Mary Did You Know,” “How Great Thou Art” and others. In this, their debut album, they deliver 16 impressive harmonizing tracks with a mixture of toe-tapping fun (such as the title song, “Working on a Building”) and powerful hymn renditions (such as “Amazing Grace” and “Because He Lives”). They sing “In the Garden” and “Why Me Lord?” too. Overall it’s impressive.

Bethel Music
Victory
Bethel, 2019

It’s the newest album from the worship band that was born out of Bethel Church, Redding, California, and it’s one of their most stirring ones yet. The 14-song album was recorded live. 

The lyrics are inspired by the story of King Jehoshaphat and his unlikely victory as recorded in 2 Chronicles 20. 

For powerful worship tunes try “Goodness of God,” “There is A Name,” “Living Hope” and “Praise is the Highway.” For something up-tempo, listen to “Raise a Hallelujah” and “Drenched in Love.”
