EDITORS’ NOTES

On Christmas: God Is with Us, Jeremy Camp manages the difficult feat of updating holiday classics while balancing reverence with exuberance. This hit-making Christian singer/songwriter has always brought a touch of soulful style and arena-friendly dynamics to his work. For this yuletide offering, he puts on his rock ‘n’ roll shoes for “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Let It Snow,” exhorting listeners to join in the fun. “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” gets a boldly upbeat treatment that brings a modern ambiance to the timeless lyric. A driving cover of Mark Lowry’s “Mary Did You Know” and a worshipful reading of his own “God Is with Us” let Camp blend in contemporary pop/rock material. Traditional nativity carols like “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Joy to the World," and “Away in a Manger” take on distinctly modern colors while retaining their old-fashioned grace. Camp adds yet another element to this collection with a stirring, slightly jazz-tinged reading of the contemporary favorite “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Throughout, he proves himself a consummate performer while never forgetting the reason for the holiday season.

Must have album

Jeremy camp I first listened to when i was living at a homeless shelter with nothing to my name. I gave my life to the lord and his music has through these years given me the inspiration and hope that has strengthened my walk in Christ. I am now happily married for nine years to a strong Christian Roman and we own our own home. Jeremy camps music has been there through it all for me and this album delivers a strong and powerful message about Christ through that brings back the true meaning of Christmas.
