Nashville, TN - (November 18, 2022) – GRAMMY ® award winner, and current double nominee for the upcoming 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards ® on February 5, 2023, Chris Tomlin is releasing a deluxe version of his Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship Deluxe today with two additional songs, “Gloria” penned by Tomlin, Tyler Hubbard, Dave Barnes, and Corey Crowder and “Emmanuel God Is With Us” featuring Anne Wilson, which was an Amazon original last year. This is Tomlin’s sixth ‘Christmas Songs of Worship’ project.
“Christmas is my favorite time of the year… I love the traditions, Christmas lights, and most of all I love the music,” shared Chris. “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 ‘Christmas Songs of Worship’ series includes 2021’s Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship, Miracle Of Love: Christmas Songs of Worship EP released in 2020, Christmas Day: Christmas Songs of Worship EP from 2019, 2015’s highly regarded Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship, and his gold-certified Glory In The Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship from 2009.
