The Underground Your Alternative Christian Voice http://theundergroundsite.com Best of 2013: Top 5 new Christian artists The year is coming to a close, and it has been a good year for Christian music. Like every other year, there was an influx of new songstress and crooners into the Gospel contemporary Christian music scene. In the sea of Christian music old-timers, legends, and veterans a few newcomers experienced grace, breakthrough and impactful launch in their careers as Christian performers. So, who are the top 5 best new Christian artist of 2013 and why did I choose them? Glad you asked. The reasons I chose them are as follows: 1. These artists released albums and/or had singles in 2013. 2. They brought new sounds and/or feel to Christian music. 3. They scored nominations for awards. 4. They appeared on billboard charts and sold tons of records, as well as concert tickets. 5. Above all these acts helped in elevating the Kingdom of God with their music. Now, on to the top 5 newcomers. Drumroll, please (or not). 1 / 6
The Underground Your Alternative Christian Voice http://theundergroundsite.com Last year, we got to know and fall in love with the duo For King and Country. This year TobyMac introduced Capital Kings. The group is comprised of Jon White, who takes the lead vocals and Cole Walowac, who is mainly in charge of programming and DJing. These two guys are low-key, but they are slowly, but surely, bringing Electronica to Christian music. Their self-titled album charted on the Billboard Christian album chart. The duo also garnered a Dove Award nomination. Soulfire Revolution 2 / 6

The former American idolist contestant released his debut Christian pop album "A Messenger" in the first quarter of 2013. He has toured and rocked every single stage he's been on.

The Underground Your Alternative Christian Voice http://theundergroundsite.com Looking back at the year Tasha Cobbs has had, it doesn't get better than this for a new artist. Cobbs had the one of the biggest Gospel songs in 2013, and she's a newcomer! Her single "Break Every Chain" which was originally rendered in a Christian pop/rock format and covered by Jesus Culture's Kim Walker Smith became the song on every lip. She transformed it into a full blown urban gospel contemporary tune. She also released her debut album "Grace" to much critical acclaims and has been on top since then. Cobbs recently won at the Dove Awards and scored herself two Grammy nominations against 2014 Grammy awards. Her single "Break Every Chain" is still on heavy rotation on gospel radio stations hence why she came up on top on the Billboard year-end chart. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org) 6 / 6
